Also used in Richard Thompson's terrific song "Walking the Long Miles Home":Got the moon there for company each step of the way And the rhythm in my shoes keep the blues all away When you ride Shanks's Pony you don't have to pay Walking the long miles home

One's legs. To take shanks's pony = to walk. E.g. "You're an hour late, what took you so long?" "Bus didn't show up did it, so I took shanks's pony."
