lyrics

26 HORSES
26 horses running
26 horses lead the way
26 horses running
26 horses packed with pay

Up went Thompson from Astoria
A noted phantasmagoria
Two Amazons like man and wife
Who carried letters that would save their lives

CHORUS

In the man I saw the woman born
Tall leggings, a long robe adorned
With porcupine quills dyed red and blue
A queer sight we thought a clever ruse

CHORUS

The prophet saw the end was evident
From blankets cloaked with pestilence
The great white chief gives all their heart’s desire
In return they gave the messenger

CHORUS
