David Christie - Saddle Up And Ride Your Pony Guitar Chords

Chords: Dm, G, F, A7, A, D
This is a cool & funky chord version of David Christie's 1982 "Saddle Up" (and ride your pony) hit.

It's pretty simple, although you might want to listen to the song to get the basic rhythm. I use bar chords 
to get a more percussive feel to the song.  Suggestions welcome.  Enjoy!

Dm, G, F, A7, A, D


[Chorus]

Dm
Saddle up and ride your pony
G
sit around and you'll be lonely.
Dm
Saddle up and make the dust fly
G
sit around and you will just cry.
F                       
The first step is the longest when the wind is blowin' strongest.
