70           SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
She wrote ahead to the place I said,
I was always glad to find it;
She says, "I am true; when you get through,
Ride back and you will find me."
That sweet little gal, that true little gal,
The gal I left behind me!
When we sold out, I took the train, I knew where I would find her; When I got back we had a smack, And that was no gol-darned liar. That sweet little gal, that true little gal, The gal I left behind me!
GET ALONG, LITTLE DOGIES"'
Heard this song sung in Tombstone, Arizona, by Jim Falls.
As I walked out one morning for pleasure,
I spied a cow-puncher all riding alone;
His hat throwed back and his spurs was a-jinglin*
As he approached me a-singin' this song:
Whoopee ti yi yo, git along, little dogies, It's your misfortune, and none of my own. Whoopee ti yi yo, git along, little dogies, For you know Wyoming will be your new home.
Early in the spring we round up the dogies, Mark and brand and bob off their tails; Round up our horses, load up the chuck-wagon, Then throw the dogies upon the North trail.
