Reply had the 8 track….thanks 4 posting Reply Jack Dempsey wherever you are thanks for showing me this song Reply the good ol days hell yea I have this album Reply Why does everyone try to figure out what the song is about, why it was written,etc., etc., ….. just listen to it …. it's classic rock. Who cares why it was written and what it's about …. Reply Black velvet stallion, you are gone*Chasing a windsong, be my sonAlways here wonderingHoof beats are thundering through meMaybe you're running from me Black velvet stallion are you nearCarry me far away from my fearSon of an Arab mareRoaming on solid air and freeWhile you are living be free Black velvet stallion be aloneSend me a messenger call me homePictures and silhouettesSpending a pirouette on meMaybe you're coming to me Black velvet stallion you're my childFlower of tenderness growing wildLook through my wildernessNo one would ever guess you're meWhat I am seeing is me Reply One of my all-time favorite songs. I first heard this on KMAC radio in San Antonio when I was 11 years old, and this song always connected with me… big time! This is one of those songs that brings me pure joy every time I hear it (which is often). Reply best ever 45 years still as good as when i first heard them my band Reply dislike got to a disco fools Reply 57 year,s young ,and still listning ,look out retirement home…. Reply BUDGIE Reply High School…I dated a disc jockey Reply Can't help but hearing this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNoMSi1ztt0 Reply If they would have kept the noise at the end off the track, this would have been an epic track that stood the test of time. The 2006 version was worse IMHO. Reply it's been 5 years since's i dis this Band Wild but sick Fuck fuck Love it ! Reply Merry Christmas lol Marilee Reply Love this song..I had a great childhood teen… Reply Exceptional. Every bit as good as Zeppelin, Sabbath or Purple. Reply … Love u victoria… Reply Just great piece of art… Reply Tony Bourge is a brilliant guitar player. Very underrated band, indeed. Reply black velvet stallion and heaven knows our name are truly two highlights 👍👍👍👍👍 Reply Just love Budgie. They were true originals. If you listen to The Eagles and “In Those Shoes,” they were influenced by this song. Stallion came out three years before it. I live in San Antonio native and would love to have grown up here back in the 70s. Reply Been listening to budgie since 79 when I was growing up in San Antonio kick ass rock . Reply This is hauntingly. Breathtakingly music to my ears! Reply I bought this album at a Budgie gig at St.Albans Civic Hall in 1976. I was right at the front, leaning on the stage, right where Burke was playing. Reply I always felt this was a song made for the dead of winter ghostly spirits moving thru a dark foggy night in the forest hauntly sad the snow falling add to the perfect track known as black velvet stallion.⛄❄💨🎸🏇 Reply ROCK Efffin' ON! Budgie sets the bar for rock-n-roll Reply Am I the only one who occasionally hears birds in the background in this song?

I bought the album the next week. Welsh wizards!!! Reply This band was waaay ahead of they're time. They fuckn kickass an seen them like 3 times. Reply Jeśli też to lubisz to znasz się na muzyce.
