                      THE PONY MAN

             G                            C                G
When it's midnight on the meadow and the cats are in the shed
                        C             D          D7
And the river tells a story at the window by my bed
         G                         C           G 
If you listen very closely be as quiet as you can
                    C          D            G 
In the yard you'll hear him it is the pony man.
        G                                  C          G
We're always there to greet him when he tumbles into town
                       C               D                  D7 
He leads a string of ponies some are white and some are brown
           G                               C           G         
And they never seem to kick or bite they only want to play
                         C       D                 G  
And they live on candy apples instead of oats and hay.
      G                           C             G
And when we're all assembled he gives a soft command
                           C      D               D7  
And we climb aboard our ponies as in a row they stand
       G                            C                  G   
Then down the road we gallop and across the fields we fly
                      C          D                G 
And soon we all go sailing off into the midnight sky.
    G                        C                G 
And as we gaily rock along beside a ripplin' sea
                         C        D           D7
There's Tom 'n Dick 'n Sally and Mary Joe and me
          G                                C            G        
And the pony man is leading cause he's travelled here before
                              C      D                  G 
And he gives a whoop and a holler at Mr. Moon's front door. 

    G                                      C           G 
And as we stop to rest a while where the soda river glides
                          C            D             D7    
Up to the slip comes a pirate ship to take us for a ride
         G                                C              G   
And the pony man's the captain and the children are the crew
                          C           D                     G    
And we go in search of treasure and laugh the whole night through.
     G                                          C              G
And when the hold is filled with gold and the sails begin to strain
                                 C           D              D7 
And the deck's piled high with apple pie we head for port again
     G                               C               G     
And down the whirling staircase so swift our ponies fly
                         C          D                          G
And we're safely in our beds again when the sunbeams kiss the sky.

Repeat First Verse
