Nine Red Horsemen

Lyrics

(Mexican folk tune, Lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon)

I saw nine red horsemen
Ride over the plain,
And each gripped his horse
By its long flowing mane.

Refrain
Ho hillo, hillo, hillo ho!
Ho hillo, hillo, hillo ho!
Ho hillo, hillo, hillo ho!
Ho hillo, hillo, hillo ho!

Their hair streamed behind them,
And their eyes were ashine;
They all rode as one man,
Although they were nine. Refrain

  1. We sang this in the early 1950s.
    The 3rd line of the first verse was…
    ….and each held his charger
    by its long flowing mane

    Good memories. Anyone remember the song and lyrics to…
    The windmill goes around,
    It makes a funny sound
    Then blow, blow winds blow, etc.
    Thanks
