Перевод песни Chris Ledoux – Old Red

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
Old Red was one of the ornriest yet
I've seen at the big rodeos
He'd bite you and kick you and stomp out your life
Old Red had never been rode
Meaner than sin, wild as the wind
That blew on the Montana plains
Old Red was one of the last of his breed
And wasn't about to be tamed
From Idaho a young cowboy came
To ride in the big rodeo
The young cowboy's name was Billy McClain
And Billy had never been throwed
The greatest desire filled young Billy's heart
To ride this old outlaw called Red
He drew him one day and I heard Billy say
«I'll ride him, or drop over dead.»
Old Red was wicked down there in the chutes
He was kickin' and stompin' about
Billy swung into the saddle with ease
And yelled, «Turn 'im loose, let us out.»
Old Red came out with his head on the ground
His back hooves were touchin' his nose
Tryin' to get rid of the man on his back
But the man went wherever he'd go Old Red was buckin' straight for the fence
Suddenly stoppin' and then
He rared on his hind legs and fell on his back
Takin' poor Billy with him
There was a hush in the crowd for they knew
This would be Billy's last ride
The saddlehorn crushed Billy's chest as they fell
And under Old Red, Billy died
Old Red lay still, no more would he move
The cowboys that seen it could tell
In trying to throw Billy off of his back
Old Red broke his neck when he fell
Out in the West is a place where they rest
This cowboy that never was throwed
And one foot away, restin' there 'neath the clay
Is the outlaw that never was rode
