"New Pony" as written by and Bob Dylan....
Once I had a pony, her name was Lucifer
I had a pony, her name was Lucifer
She broke her leg and she needed shooting
I swear it hurt me more than it could ever have hurted her

Sometimes I wonder what's going on in the mind of Miss X
Sometimes I wonder what's going on in the mind of Miss X
You know she got such a sweet disposition
I never know what the poor girl's gonna do to me next

I got a new pony, she knows how to fox-trot, lope and pace
Well, I got a new pony, she knows how to fox-trot, lope and pace
She got great big hind legs
And long black shaggy hair above her face

Well now, it was early in the mornin', I seen your shadow in the door
It was early in the mornin', I seen your shadow in the door
Now, I don't have to ask nobody
I know what you come here for

They say you're usin' voodoo, your feet walk by themselves
They say you're usin' voodoo, I seen your feet walk by themselves
Oh, baby, that god you been prayin' to
Is gonna give ya back what you're wishin' on someone else

Come over here pony, I, I want to climb up one time on you
Come over here pony, I, I want to climb up one time on you
Well, you're so bad and nasty
But I love you, yes I do

    Song ComparisonI truly love this song, but I must admit that my opinion of it has tarnished a bit since I recently discovered that much of the lyrics are lifted directly from Son House's "Pony Blues". I guess the old adage that "great artists steal" is proven once again.
