I've seen that the title is from a spiritual, perhaps beginning "Pale Horse, Pale Rider/ done take my true love away". But I've never found the lyrics. Does anyone have them?

Penn Hackney It's from Revelation 6:7-8, in the King James Version thus:

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
