There'll be three white horses, all in a line
There'll be three white horses in a line

Three white horses, when you go that way
You will need somebody when you come to die

Don't dismiss it like it's easy
Tell me what's so easy
'Bout coming to say goodbye

You're gonna miss her in the evening
You know I won't be needing
Somebody when you come to die

There'll be three white horses in a line
There'll be three white horses in a line
There'll be three white horses when you go that way
You will need somebody when you come to die

It's not desperation that we're breeding
It's just a need we're feeding
Before we say goodbye

You're gonna miss me in the evenings
You know I won't be needing
Somebody when you come to die
Yeah, I won't be needing
Somebody when you come to die

I just listened to an interview of him on The Checkout and I have to say I think he's pretty talented.  Not sure if this my favorite tune overall, but he does bring something different to the table (for me at least).

I think it is an electric violin combined with a pedal.

I believe it looks like an intelligent metronome or a singing stingray tail
Love Andrew Bird! Nice song
There are more than a dozen white horses in Wiltshire alone
Scraped into hillsides, that  is..
I love this song

How old is he?



 
Wikipedia says he is 40. Kinda long in the tooth for this kind of praise. Praiseworthy indeed, but not because of his age.

That's already been done several times, but possibly not as mush as "white horse" songs have been written.
