Riding Round the Cattle


(American folk song)

Whooping up cattle, I’m setting up straddle,
I’m riding round the cattle

And a whoop-ti-yiddle-um yea,
Yum-a yea,
And a whoop-ti-yiddle-um day.

1. I went out a-riding, a-rounding up the cattle,
And I thought I would be a-riding up straddle Refrain

2. Went out riding and a I got a-straddle,
And the mule throwed me right back off of the saddle Refrain

3. Let me tell you about that Sill,
He throwed me right at the foot of the hill Refrain
