    "I'm An Old Cowhand (From The Rio Grande)" Lyrics

    Tex Ritter

    I'm an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
    But my legs ain't bowed and my cheeks ain't tan
    I'm a cowboy who never saw a cow
    Never roped a steer cause I don't know how
    Sure ain't a fixin to start in now
    Yippie yi yo kayah

    I'm an old cowhand and I come down from the Rio Grande
    And I learned to ride, ride, ride 'fore I learned to stand
    I'm a riding fool who is up to date
    I know every trail in the Lone Star State
    Cause I ride the range in a Ford V-8

    Yippie yi yo kayah

    We're old cowhands from the Rio Grande
    And we come to town just to hear the band
    We know all the songs that the cowboys know
    'Bbout the big corral where the doggies go
    We learned them all on the radio
    Yippie yi yo kayah

    I'm an old cowhand
    Oh yes, Mr. Bing.
    Too hot for you, Uncle Fudd?
    Down from the Rio Grande
    Oh where the west is wild all around the borderland
    Where the buffalo roam around the zoo
    and the Injuns run up a rug or two
    and the old Bar X is just a barbecue, yeah
    Yippie yi yo kayah

    I'm a pioneer who began from scratch
    I don't bat an eye in a shootin' match.
    They don't call me Elmer, they call me Satch.
    Yippie yi yo kayah
    Yippie yi yo kayah

    Get along little horsy
    Get along little horsy
    Yippie yi yo kayah, oh!
