I wrote this lyric a long time ago and finally resurrected it and did it for this past fawm.org thingy.

Rides Her Appaloosa
(c) Emmrich 2015

(verse)
Sally lives in the city
streets are filthy she don't feel pretty
her chances slim but she won't give in
like her mama did
when she was just a kid

(chorus)
but at night sally rides her appaloosa
where no one calls her a loser
way out west life's a perfect score on a test
she don’t worry about her future
'cause she gets to ride her appaloosa

(verse)
Sees painted on the wall a desert flower
gotta hurry it's dark in less than a half-hour
walking home on 5th is kinda crazy
the boys might be lazy
but their words cut deeper
than a cougar's claws

(bridge)
the dishes clink like a western dinner bell
she hurries with the clean-up
so her mom won't begin to yell
Miss Thompson says the way out is education
but most here don't make it to graduation

(chorus)
but at night sally dreams of riding her appaloosa
where no one calls her a loser
way out west life's a perfect score on a test
she don’t worry about her past or future
'cause she gets to ride her appaloosa
