teek (report)

bum around tumbled down heart
saddle bags full of pain
carries them around just like a middle name
a losing streak waiting for dark
oh he'll string you along, sing you a lonesome song
but he'll wind up alone again
--
that tumbled down, broken down heart
--
mean horse threw him a long time ago

etc. y'all can fix the other pronouns.

How can one tab lyrics to a cowboy song if they don't understand "mean horse"?? :/
Especially after getting "wouldn't want that horse to hurt you too".
