G OME all you jolly cowmen, don't you want to go Way up on the Kansas line?
Where you whoop up the cattle from morning till
night All out in the midnight rain.
The cowboy's life is a dreadful life,
He's driven through heat and cold;
I'm almost froze with the water on my clothes,
A-ridin' through heat and cold.
I've been where the lightnin', the lightnin' tangled
in my eyes, The cattle I could scarcely hold; Think I heard my boss man say: " I want all brave-hearted men who ain't afraid to
die To whoop up the cattle from morning till night, Way up on the Kansas line."
Speaking of your farms and your shanty charms,
Speaking of your silver and gold,
Take a cowman's advice, go and marry you a true
and lovely little wife, Never to roam, always stay at home;
