O COME cowboys and listen to my song, I'm in hopes I'll please you and not keep you long; I'll sing you of things you may think strange About West Texas and the U-S-U range.
You may go to Stamford and there see a man Who wears a white shirt and is asking for hands; You may ask him for work and he'll answer you
short, He will hurry you up, for he wants you to start. He will put you in a wagon and be off in the rain, You will go up on Tongue River on the U-S-U range.
You will drive up to the ranch and there you will
stop. It's a little sod house with dirt all on top. You will ask what it is and they will tell you out
plain That it's the ranch house on the U-S-U range.
You will go in the house and he will begin to explain; You will see some blankets rolled up on the floor; You may ask what it is and they will tell you out
plain That it is the bedding on the U-S-U range.
