#50: Since She Started To Ride - Songs About Horses

Playlist for Sunday August 23, 2009
Hosted by Greg Denton with guest Emily Jardine


1. Wake Up Jacob - Prince Albert Hunt & His Texas Ramblers

2. All The Tired Horses - Bob Dylan
The lead track from Bob Dylan's Self Portrait album and the only fresh original song on a double album of, ironically given the title, mostly cover songs. That irony is perhaps deepened by the fact that Dylan doesn't even sing on this track (and may not even play on it) - instead leaving it for a chorus of female voices and string section. "All the tired horses in the sun/how am I gonna get any riding [writing?] done".

3. My Rifle, My Pony And Me - Dean Martin & Ricky Neslon (intro by John Wayne)
Recorded live on set! From the soundtrack of the film Rio Bravo.

5. High Horse Momma - Terry Allen

6. Flop-Eared Mule - The Holy Modal Rounders
7. The Horse Named Bill - Carl Sandburg
