GUEST,Murray on Salt Spring Origins/Lyrics: Goodbye Horse (14) Goodbye Horse 18 Jan 08


Words, music and origins wanted of Goodbye Horse.
Perhaps of Royal Navy origin?

In the RN (1940s-1950s)a horse was a girlfriend (usually a casual one!).

He was saying goodbye to his horse,
He was saying goodbye to his horse,
And as he was saying goodbye to his horse,
He was saying goodbye to his horse,
Goodbye horse [Goodbye horse]
Goodbye horse [Goodbye horse]
He was saying goodbye to his horse,
Last night he was saying goodbye to his horse,
He was saying goodbye to his horse.
