Goodbye Old Paint

Lyrics

(Charley Willis, 1800s)

My foot in the stirrup, my pony won’t stand,
I’m a-leavin’ Cheyenne, I’m off for Montan’.

Refrain
Goodbye, old Paint, I’m a-leavin’ Cheyenne,
Goodbye, old Paint, I’m a-leavin’ Cheyenne,

2. I’m a ridin’ old Paint, I’m a-leadin’ old Dam,
Goodbye, little Annie, I’m off for Montan’. Refrain

3. Oh, hitch up your horses and feed ’em some hay,
And seat yourself by me as long as you stay. Refrain

4. My horses ain’t hungry, they’ll not eat your hay.
My wagon is loaded and rolling away. Refrain
