"Parisienne Walkways" as written by and Peter Green....
I got a long grey mare,
she won't let me ride.
I got a long grey mare,
she won't let me ride.
She makes me brush her in the morning,
put her to bed every night, yeah.

Long grey mare,
why can't we be just like before?
Long grey mare,
why can't we be just like before?
We used to ride so hard,
oh, till we couldn't take no more, yeah.

Long grey mare,
don't I feed you every day?
Long grey mare,
well, don't I feed you every day?
And when I dig you with my spur,
you turn around the other way.

    General CommentGary is phenomenal on guitar, and it gives this song the wonderful haunted sense of looking back on good times, but now being left with just him and his guitar.

    Beautiful.
