HIGH HORSE (Emily Saliers)
--------------------------
[I've written the chords to this song as if it's played in Am with a capo
 on the 5th fret.  It may actually have been played in Bm (capo 3) or in
 Dm (no capo).]
[Each chord is half a measure, except the chords in parentheses
 are short, about a quarter note.]

[Lead guitar intro; no chords.  See tab at end.]]

[intro]

Am             Em                Am     Em
  You had your chance to show affection
Am               Em               Am   Em
  You had your chance to give me more
Am             Em                 Am     Em
  And now that she's found new direction
    (Ebm)     Dm  Dm          E   E
You make your way to my back door

Am                 Em                  Am       Em
  What makes you think the whole world wants you
Am             Em                Am     Em
  Give steel a kiss and it will bend
Am             Em                 Am              Em
  The flesh is weak, but when it all is said and done
    (Ebm)    Dm         Dm          Esus  E
The spirit's all that's left in the end

C              C            E     E
If you have to saddle your high horse
Am          Am              Em             Em  (Ebm)
  Go on and ride out of my (ride out of my sight)
Dm          Dm               G        G
  You never had the time of day for me, no
C             C                  E    E
  And now you want to spend the night

C                     C                 E             E
  You're big with the come-on like it's no big deal (no big deal to you)
Am             Am                  Em                  Em
  You let the wild wind blow your (wild wind blow your course)
(Ebm) Dm              Dm               G               G
  I   do not want the dirt from your shoes or from the hooves
       Am  Em   Am  Em   Am  Em   Am  Em
Of your high horse

The way I see it, there are few things left
To hold on to and keep your head, yeah
And it's your sense of humor and integrity (??)
There's nothing funny about what's being said

And there was a day when I would let myself be trampled
As long as it was done by you (as long as it was done by you)
But I took so much abuse, now I've had ample
There's no way that you'll break through

If you have to saddle your high horse
Go on and ride out of my (ride out of my sight)
You never had the time of day for me, no
And now you want to spend the night

You're big with the come-on like it's no big deal (no big deal to you)
You let the wild wind blow your (wild wind blow your course)
I do not want the dirt from your shoes or from the hooves
Of your high horse

[guitar solo, Am & Em]

You had your chance to show (you had your chance to show me some affection)
You had your chance to (you had your chance to give me more, baby)
Now that she's found (now that your girl found new direction)
You make your way to my back door

What makes you think the whole world wants you, oh yeah
Give steel a kiss and it will bend, baby
The flesh is weak, but when it's all been said and done
The spirit's all that's left in the end, yeah

If you have to saddle your high horse
You go on and ride out of my (ride out of my sight)
You never had the time of day for me, no you didn't
And now you want to spend the night

You're big with the come-on like it's no big deal (no big deal to you)
You let the wild wind blow your (wild wind blow your course)
I do not want the dirt from your shoes or from the hooves
Of your high horse
I do not want the dirt from your shoes or from the hooves
Of your high horse, high horse
From your high horse, high horse
From your high horse, yeah   [end on Am]
