I once was lost in sin but Jesus took me in
And then a little light from heaven filled my soul
It bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above
And just a little talk with Jesus made me whole

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
And you know a little fire is burning
You will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Sometimes my path seems dreary without a ray of cheer
And then the cloud about me hides the light of day
The mists in me rise and hide the stormy skies
But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
And you know a little fire is burning
You will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

I may have doubts and fears, my eyes be filled with tears
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and and night
I go to Him in prayer, He knows my every care
And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Now let us have a little talk with Jesus
Let us tell Him all about our troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
He will answer by and by
Now when you feel a little prayer wheel turning
And you know a little fire is burning
You will find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

Circle left
*He was an old time cowboy, don't you understand
His eyes were sharp as razor blades, his hands were leather tanned

Walk around the left hand lady, see-saw your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
It's faster horses, younger women
Dosado and promenade
It's faster horses, older whiskey, good music, more money


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*He was so thin you could have used him for a whip
He had to drink a beer to keep his britches on his hip


*He smiled and all his teeth was covered with tobacco stains
He said it don't do me no good to pray for peace or rain


FIGURE

Head (Side) couples promenade go half around the ring
Down the middle, pass the ocean, extend, swing thru go two by two
Spin the top you do, and when you're through do the right & left thru
Square thru three hands to that corner lady swing
Swing the corner lady and promenade
It's faster horses, older whiskey, good music, more money

Faster Horses Lyrics ID: 341

He was an old-time cowboy, don't you understand?
His eyes were sharp as razor blades; his face was leather-tanned
His toes were pointed inwards from a-hangin' on a horse
He was an old philosopher, of course

He was so thin I swear you coulda used him for a whip
He had to drink a beer to keep his britches on his hips
I knew I had to ask him 'bout the mysteries of life
He spit between his boots and he replied:

CHORUS

It's faster horses -- younger women -- older whiskey -- more money!

He smiled and all his teeth were covered with tobacco stains
He said "It don't do men no good to pray for peace and rain
'Peace and rain' is just a way of sayin' prosperity
And buffalo chips is all it means to me.

I told him I was a poet; I was searchin' for the truth
I do not care for horses, whiskey, women or the loot
I told him I was a writer; my soul was all afire
He looked at me and said "You are a liar."

CHORUS (repeat)

Well, I was disillusioned, if I may say the least
I grabbed him by the collar and I jerked him to his feet
There was something cold and shiny a-layin' by my head
So I started to believe the things he said.

Now my poet days are over, and I'm back to bein' me
As I enjoy the peace and comfort of reality
If my boy ever asks me what it is that I have learned
I think that I will readily affirm:

CHORUS

Lyrics by Tom T. Hall.
