    Predefinito Jethro Tull - Heavy horses

    Iron-clad feather-feet pounding the dust
    An October's day towards evening
    Sweat embossed veins standing proud to the plough
    Salt on a deep chest seasoning
    Last of the line at an honest day's toil
    Turning the deep sod under
    Flint at the fetlock, chasing the bone
    Flies at the nostrils plunder

    The Suffolk, the Clydesdale, the Percheron vie
    With the shire on his feathers floating
    Hawling soft timber into the dusk
    To bed on a warm straw coating

    Heavy horses move the land under me
    Behind the plough gliding - slipping and sliding free
    Now you're down to the few and there's no work to do
    The tractor's on its way



    Let me find you a filly for your proud stallion seed
    To keep the old line going
    And well stand you abreast at the back of the wood
    Behind the young trees growing
    To hide you from eyes that mock at your girth
    And your eighteen hands at the shoulder
    And one day when the oil barons have all dripped dry
    And the nights are seen to draw colder
    They'll beg for your strength, your gentle power
    Your noble grace and your bearing
    And you'll strain once again to the sound of the gulls
    In the wake of the deep plough, sharing

    Heavy horses move the land under me
    Behind the plough gliding - slipping and sliding free
    Now you're down to the few and there's no work to do
    The tractor's on its way

    Standing like tanks on the brow of the hill
    Up into the cold wind facing
    In still battle harness, chained to the world
    Against the low sun racing

    Bring me a wheel of oaken wood
    A rein of polished leather
    A heavy horse and a tumbling sky
    Brewing heavy weather

    Bring a song for the evening
    Clean brass to flash the dawn
    Across these acres glistening
    Like dew on a carpet lawn
    In these dark townsfolk he sleeping
    As the heavy horses thunder by
    To wake the dying city
    With the living horseman's cry
    At once the old hands quicken -
    Bring pick and wisp and curry comb
    Thrill to the sound of all
    The heavy horses coming home

    Iron-clad feather-feet pounding the dust
    An October's day towards evening
    Sweat embossed veins standing proud to the plough
    Salt on a deep chest seasoning
    Bring me a wheel of oaken wood
    A rein of polished leather
    A heavy horse and a tumbling sky
    Brewing heavy weather


    Heavy horses move the land under me
    Behind the plough gliding - slipping and sliding free
    Now you're down to the few and there's no work to do
    The tractor's on its way
