Caballo Diablo Lyrics - The Charlie Daniels Band

Review The Song (1)

Wild as a coastal BARRANCA, swift as the wind blowin' free
With two eyes like fire brands that glow in the night
Somewhere up there he's waitin' for me
And he knows that I'm coming for him
I just can't rest 'til I find
That raven black stallion, who wears no man's brand
With a wild restless spirit like mine

They call him Caballo Diablo
Half horse and half devil they say
Caballo Diablo the outlaw
Of the blanca Sierra Madre

Two men before tried to take him
They had their chance one by one
But each met his fate when those flashin' black hooves
Brought death 'neath the Mexican sun
Still I can't leave I must find him
You fool of a horse can't you see
I may be half man, but the other half's devil
And you're just exactly like me


Even the breeze has stopped movin'
Hush now - be still
Don't make a sound and stay close to the ground
Cause he's waitin' just over that hill
Downwind behind him move quickly
Do it fast now, he's startin' to stir
Grab a hand full of mane and up onto his back
And start breaking him down with my spurs
But try as he will he can't shake me
As over the precipice we go
To spill the lifes blood of a horse and a man
On the rocky Sierra below

Loved since I knew what songs were | Reviewer: Lee | 11/16/2006

I grew up listening to this son (Along with the rest of Side 1 of Fire onthe Mountain). I credit this song for helping me grow up warped. 3-year olds probably shouldn't be singing about the "life's blood for a horse and a man on the rocky sierra below." But I digress.

THIS IS A ROCKING SONG! Country/Rock and a story that pulls you along. One of the best.
