Chisholm Trail

Lyrics

Well, come along friends, listen to my tale
I’ll tell you ’bout my troubles on the old Chisholm trail
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!

On a ten-dollar horse, and a forty-dollar saddle
I was ridin’ and a-punchin’ Texas cattle
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!

I’m up in the morning before daylight
Before I get to sleep the moon’s shining bright
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!

It’s bacon and beans most every day
I’d just as soon be eatin’ prairie hay
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!

I woke up one mornin’ on the Chisholm trail
With a rope in my hand and a cow by the tail
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!

I jumped in the saddle and grabbed hold the horn
The best cowpuncher that ever was born
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay, yippy yay!
Come-a ti yi yippy, yippy, yay!
