Western Cowboy Lyrics

When I was a cowboy
Out on the western plains
When I was a cowboy
Out on the western plains
I made a half a million
Pullin' on the bridle reins

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

I went to my girl's house
She's sittin' d'ere alone
Went to my girl's house
She's sittin' d'ere alone
I'm a poor western cowboy
A long way from home

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

When I left my girl's house
She was rockin' in her rockin' chair
When I left my girl's house
She was rockin' in her rockin' chair
Poor western cowboy
Please don't you leave me here

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

Went to my girl's house
Sitting deep down in my saddle
Went to my girl's house
Sitting deep down in my saddle
I'm the best western cowboy
That ever herd cattle

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

Oh, de hardest battle
Was there ever on the western plains
Oh, de hardest battle
Was there ever on the western plains
When me an a bunch of cowboys
Run into Jesse James

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

Me an a bunch of cowboys
Run into Jesse James
Me an a bunch of cowboys
Run into Jesse James
All the bullets was a-fallin'
Just like a shower rain

Come a ki-ki--yicky
Cow, ki-yicky-yicky-yeah

Come all you cowboys
Don't you wanna go?
Come all you cowboys
Don't you wanna go?
Gon see the ranges
On the range in *Buffalo

Come a cow ki--yicky
Cow, cow, yicky-yicky-yea

Take de hardest battle
Was there ever on Bunker Hill
Oh, de hardest battle
Was there ever on Bunker Hill
When me an' a bunch of cowboys
Run into Buffalo Bill

Come a cow ki--yicky
Cow, cow, yicky-yicky-yea

Come all you cowboys
Don't you wanna hear?
Come all you cowboys
Don't you wanna hear?
O'vr nineteen hundred
Bullets around your ear

Come a cow ki--yicky
Cow, cow, yicky-yicky-yeah.
