Mary was married with children
Had the perfect suburban life
Til her husband came clean with the help of Jim Beam
And confessed all his sins in one night
Said he'd fallen in love with a barmaid
Said she made him feel reckless and young
And when he got through, what else could she do
She just let that pony run

You do what you gotta do
You know what you know
You hang on til you can't hang on
And then you learn to let go
You get what you want sometimes
But when it's all said and done
You do what you gotta do
And then you let that pony run

Mary moved to West Virginia
After the shock wore off
She got a divorce and a chestnut horse
And a barn with an old hayloft
And sometimes she rides by the river
Says it makes her feel reckless and young
She closes her eyes and she holds on tight
And she lets that pony run
