[Intro]
A

[Verse 1]
A                                                        D
Death ain't nothin' but a speckled pony ain't never been rode
E                                                    A
That's what Freddy Jones he told me many bottles ago
    A                                                                  D
And I guess Freddy was the best damn hand that would slip in his faded jeans
     E                                                             A
Everybody said Freddy did everything bad but he never did anything mean

[Verse 2]
     A                                                      D
Yeah death ain't nothin' but a speckled pony Freddy came to know
E                                          A
Readin' his motel bible in Vaughn, New Mexico
            A                                                        D
Now there's lots of trails old man Freddy rode won't never be rode no more
           E                                                                 A
Cause he's out there lyin' in a line shack dyin' with a chair up against the door

[Chorus]
        D                               A
And I recall when Freddy told me when I ride my speckled pony
          E                             A
I'm gonna let that pony know he found a man to ride him well
       D                                    A
All my friends have gone before me but I'll ride him home to glory
       E                                            A
Out of nothing but my ornery and my pride in my own self

[Verse 3]
A                                          D
Now can’t you hear that speckled pony he's ridin' tonight
        E                                                        A
And old Freddy Jones is just a workin' cowboy and he’s holdin' on tight
     A                                                D
In a shack with a cot and a Coleman stove in the cold panhandle wind
         E                                                          A
There's a friend of mine that don't know his kind ain't never gonna come again

[Chorus]
         D                               A
Yeah I recall when Freddy told me when I ride my speckled pony...
          E                             A
I'm gonna let that pony know he found a man to ride him well
       D                                    A
All my friends have gone before me but I'll ride him home to glory
       E                                            A
Out of nothing but my ornery and my pride in my own self

[Outro]
               D                           A
So Freddy ride Freddy ride your speckled pony
         E             A
Kick him high ride him long
