black horse and cherry tree lyrics – casey weston

well my heart knows me better than i know myself
so i’m gonna let it do all the talking.

i came across a place in the middle of nowhere
with a big black horse and a cherry tree.

i felt a little fear upon my back
he said “don’t look back, just keep on walking.”

when the big black horse that look this way said
“hey, lady, will you marry me?”

but i said no, no, no, no-no-no
i said no, no, you’re not the one for me
no, no, no, no-no-no
i said no, no, you’re not the one for me

and my heart hit a problem, in the early hours,
so i stopped it dead for a beat or two.

but i cut some cord, and i shouldn’t have done it,
and it won’t forgive me after all these years

so i sent it to a place in the middle of nowhere
with a big black horse and a cherry tree.

now it won’t come back, ’cause it’s oh so happy
and now i’ve got a hole for the world to see

and it said no, no, no, no-no-no
said no, no, you’re not the one for me
no, no, no, no-no-no
said no, no, you’re not the one for me

not the one for me yeah

said no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
you’re not the one for me
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
you’re not the one for me

big black horse and a cherry tree
i can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me yeah yeah yeah
big black horse and a cherry tree
i can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me
