The Lyrics

He's sleeping in the hay
When you say goodnight
He's sleeping in the hay
All night, I will cry
You say I have to work
So you'd save a dime
You put the horse to sleep 'cause he died

Well, you always kept them workin'
Till their pushing up daisys
All your hogs and horses and the farmland too
Well, you know you loved him, baby
Still you worked him, maybe
Soon one day, well, he'll be through

He's sleeping in the hay
When you say goodnight
He's sleeping in the hay
All night, I will cry
You say I have to work
So you'd save a dime
You put the horse to sleep 'cause he died

(Break)

He's sleeping in the hay
When you say goodnight
He's sleeping in the hay
All night, I will cry
You say I have to work
So you'd save a dime
You put the horse to sleep 'cause he died

When that dumbass shot his rifle
He shot it at his heart
He apologized, I said, "F--- you"
You say you told me an' you told me boldly
Soon one day, well, he'll be through

He's sleeping in the hay
When you say goodnight
He's sleeping in the hay
All night, I will cry
You say I have to work
So you'd save a dime
You put the horse to sleep 'cause he died

Sleeping in the hay (who oh)
Sleeping in the hay (who oh)
Sleeping in the hay (who oh)
Sleeping in the hay
