"Half Broke Horses" as written by and Brett Warren Brad Warren....
An empty pack of Marlboro reds sittin' by the bed
I can still see mama crying on the phone
And I sorta still remember who I was that September
Before she told me he was really gone

I ran and got my plastic ponies but he just kept on going
I thought he'd turn around but I know better now

Ooh, you can't fence 'em in,
Ooh, they were born to run and then
You think you got them where you want 'em
Then they leave you all alone
Half broke horses, they never come back home

I've tried hard not to be like mama, but blood's thicker than water
And I fell for the way he said my name
And we made love wild and crazy, he wanted me to have his baby
But I should've known there's some things you can't change

I stood on the front porch cryin' but he just kept on driving
I thought he'd turn around but I know better now

Ooh, you can't fence 'em in,
Ooh, they were born to run and then
You think you got them where you want 'em
Then they leave you all alone
Half broke horses, they never come back home

Now I watch that little girl by the window as she plays
Those plastic ponies are a story, she's gonna have to hear someday
She's gonna need to hear me say

You can't fence 'em in, no, no
Cause they were born to run and then
You think you got them where you want 'em
Then they leave you all alone
Half broke horses, they never come back home
Half broke horses, they never come back home
