Lyrics

1. I started on the trail on June 23rd,
I been punching Texas cattle on the Lone Star Trail;
Singing Ki yi yippi yippi yay yippi yay!
Singing Ki yi yippi yippi yay yippi yay!

2. I’m up in the mornin’ before daylight,
And before I sleep the moon shines bright. Refrain

3. Oh, it’s bacon and beans ‘most every day,
I’d as soon be a-eatin’ prairie hay. Refrain

4. My feet are in the stirrups and my rope is on the side,
Show me a horse that I can’t ride. Refrain
