Wildfire – Lyrics – Michael Martin Murphey

Wildfire was written by Michael Martin Murphey and Larry Cansler and was sung by Michael Martin Murphey in 1975 .This country western classic reached number number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts. It was the lead single from his album Blue Sky – Night Thunder. It may have come from a story told to him as a youth of a Native American legend about a ghost horse.

Wildfire

She comes down from Yellow Mountain
On a dark flat land she rides
On a pony she named Wildfire
With a whirlwind by her side
On a cold Nebraska night
Oh, they say she died one winter
When there came a killing frost
And the pony she named Wildfire
Busted down his stall
In a blizzard he was lost
She ran calling Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
By the dark of the moon I planted
But there came an early snow
There’s been a hoot owl howlin’ by my window now
For six nights in a row
She’s coming for me I know
And on Wildfire we’re both gonna go
We’ll be riding Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
She ran calling Wildfire
On Wildfire we’re going to ride her
We’re gonna leave sod bustin’ behind
Get these hard times right on out of our minds
Riding Wildfire
