The Old Gray Mare | Lyrics, Free Sheet Music for Piano and Video

June 10, 2013

The Old Gray Mare is a classic folk song that has more recently been adopted into the standard collection of American children’s songs.  The text refers to a horse, though the lyrics may also be referring to a woman that is well past her prime.

Lyrics
Oh, the old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Ain’t what she used to be, ain’t what she used to be.
The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree,
Kicked on the whiffletree, kicked on the whiffletree
The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago,

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.
