    Six White Horses - Gillian Welch / David Rawlings
    Capo banjo 4 Tuning (d# D# Bb D# G)
    Key Eb

    Six white horses coming two by two
    Six white horses coming two by two
    Coming for my mother, no matter how I love her
    Six white horses coming two by two

    Whoa now horses, easy on the wheels
    Whoa now horses, easy on the wheels
    So broken-hearted up now they started
    Whoa now horses, easy on the wheels

    See them horses pulling on a rein
    See them horses pulling on a rein
    Sunshine and sorrow, yesterday, tomorrow
    Bedlam and Barlow Billy are their names

    Some bright morning what will you see
    Some bright morning what will you see
    Some bright morning looking on it coming
    Some bright morning what will you see

    Six white horses coming after me
    Six white horses coming after me
    Pretty as a picture, certain as a scripture
    Six white horses coming after me
