Out on the plains Down near San -ta -Fe, I met a cow -boy Rid -in' the range one day;
And as he jogged a -long I heard him sing -ing A most pe -cu -liar cow -boy song.
It was a dit -ty He learned in the cit -y "Cum -a -ti -yi -yi -ay, Cum -a -ti -yip -it -tl -e -yi -ay,"
Git a -long, Git hip lit -tle dog -ies Git a long, Bet -ter be on your way,
Git a -long, Git hip lit -tle dog -ies And he trucked 'em on down the ol' fair -way
Sing -in his Cow -Cow Boog -ie in the strang -est way "Cum -a -ti -yi -yi -ay, Cum -a --ti -yip -it -tl -e -yi -ay"
Sing -in' his cow -boy songs He's just too much, He's got a knocked out west -ern ac -cent
With a Har -lem touch He was raised on "lo -co weed" He's what you call a "swing half -breed"
Sing -in' his Cow -Cow Boog -ie in the strang -est way "Cum -a -ti -yi -yi -ay, -Cum -a -ti yip -it -tl -yi -e -ay"
