Bell Horses


Bell horses, bell horses,
What time of day?
One o'clock, two o'clock,
Three and away.

What time of day?
Two o'clock, three o'clock,
Four and away.

Bell horses, bell horses,
What time of day?
Five o'clock, six o'clock,
Now time to stay.

Midi: Bell Horses

The bell horse was the leader of a file of pack animals, or the first horse in a team pulling a wagon. Using bells was a necessity on the narrow roads of the time, as there was often not enough room for two wagons to pass one another, should they meet on the road.
