WOODY GUTHRIE


Chisholm Trail Lyrics

Foot in the stirrup and my hand on the horn I'm the best darn cowboy ever was born [Chorus:] Singing ki yi yippee yippee yi yippeo Singing ki yi yippee yippee yay Well, I started up the trail October twenty-third Started up the trail with a 2-U herd [Chorus] Up every morning before daylight And before I sleep the moon shines bright [Chorus] With a ten dollar horse and a forty dollar saddle I'm going down to Texas for to punch them cattle [Chorus] Well old Ben Bolt was a fine old boss And he went to see his gal on a sore-back hoss [Chorus] There's a stray in the herd and boss said kill it So I shot him in the rump with the handle of a skillet [Chorus] And I went to the boss to draw my roll And he had me figured out nine dollars in the hole [Chorus] Ropin' and a-tyin' and a-brandin' all day I'm a-working mighty hard for a-mighty little pay [Chorus] Well I went to the boss and we had a little chat And I hit him in the face with my old slouch hat [Chorus] With my foot in the stirrup and my hand on the horn I'm the best danged cowboy ever was born [Chorus] Well I'm gonna get married just as quick as I can And I won't punch cattle for no darn man [Chorus]
