Lyrics
My name is slow poke , that’s a joke I’m hardly broke, I am the fastest horse you ever saw.

The race is today, going all the way, this race wont be a draw.

Time to go, walkin slow, put up your doe. run the shoes off those other nags.

Near the start, Don’t like this part, I’m all heart, I’ll never be the one that lags.


I’m in the gate, jokey, sit up straight, bell’s about to ring, cramped in here but have no fear, I run like a deer cause winnin is the thing.


There it goes on your toes bet on my nose, that jokey just gave me a wack.

He might be trim but he’s a little dim I don’t need him cause I know my way around this track.

Lead


I’m on the rail, behind a horses tail. packin the mail, gettin ready to make my move

Closin fast saliin past, long shots don’t last. I’m runnin in the groove.

He let her rip that little drip I can feel that wipe I can see that wire up ahead.

Don’t hit me can’t you see I’m runnin free I’d do better packin lead.

two horse to beat , jokey stay on your feet, my last rocket and there she blows.

Well I waited to late to move the fright packin all that weght cause I only won it by a nose .

Cause i only won it by a nose.

You personal imprint...
...and spirited personality on this really shines--this was delightful Bill (and of course, your playing here is expert as always)! I wish my dad were around to have heard this--he loved the races and would take me along with him every Sunday. He would have loved this as much as me--thanks again!

Bill...
So great to hear your latest. Guitar playing is excellent as I would expect. Your vocal is classic. A real piece of work! Your singing and guitar playing is an audio play of the race, par excellence!

Kudos and best to you.

Now don't take this wrong Bill,
but I have a trophy that was given to me by a friend. It the back half of a horse , and I can't help but wonder if they're trying to tell me something.

You know what they say, if you want advice about a horse race, ask a horse and that's why I'm asking you about my trophy. I figured you'd know a thing or two about it since you just won the horse race.

Very entertaining work Bill and I love it. It's great when a person gets in to character for a song, it make the song a lot better that way. Great track my friend.

Delightful
Bill, you are a real storyteller. How you tell the tale and play so skillfully at the same time is amazing to me. You could really entertain at a state fair or library story time.

oh Bill
this is nothing short of delightful and totally entertaining. Also fresh and original.
The first part reminds me of the thirties singer Frank Crumit. Mind I never heard Frank sing like you did in the tempo part !

All praise, performance excellent as well.
