My Horses Ain't Hungry


  1. My horses ain't hungry, they won't eat your hay, So I'll get on my pony, I'm going away.
  2. I know you’re my Polly, I’m not going to stay, So come with me, darling, we’ll feed on our way.
  3. With all our belonging we’ll ride till we come, To a lonely little cabin, we’ll call it our home.
