                              RIDE ON
                      CHRISTY MOORE

Here are two versions of this  popular song written by Jimmy Mc Carthy.

The original on the right and the way I like to play it below.

 

RIDE ON   

       

  4 Beats       Down     Down up    Down up     Down up

 

                   

Em                                 /                    C                     /

True you ride the finest horse     I’ve ever seen

D                       /                        Em                   /

Standing 16’. 1” or  2”. With eyes wild and green

Em                             / 

You ride the horse so well

C                               /

Hands light to the touch

D`                         /                                              Em                /

I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

 

 

CHORUS :

 

Em      /     C          /  

Ride on      see you

D                        /                                                       Em               /

I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

Em     /   C           /

Ride on      see you

D                          /                                                                     Em                 /

I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

 

 

Em                      /

When you ride into the night

        C                         /

Without a trace behind

D                           /                              Em                /

Run your claw along my gut      one last time

    Em                     /                   

I turn to face an empty space

  C                                    / 

Where you used to lie

          D                                       /      

And look for the spark that lights the night

                             Em                   /          

Through the teardrop in my eye.
