"Six White Horses" is a song written by Larry Murray and recorded by Tommy Cash in 1969. Cash's recording reached number four on the Billboard country charts and number 79 on the Billboard Hot 100, the only song of his to make the pop charts. It made it all the way to number one on RPM Magazine's Canadian country chart.

The "six white horses" refer to a funeral procession, specifically those belonging to John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. As a result, the song has been called a country version of "Abraham, Martin and John", Dion's famous elegy to the Kennedys and King (and Abraham Lincoln), which also came out in 1969.

The song was also recorded by various others.
