American Ballads and Folk Songs
Come along, boys, and listen to my tale,
I'll tell you of my experience on the Old Chizzum Trail.
Coma-ti yi yippy, yippy yea, yippy yea, Coma-ti yi yippy, yippy yea.
I was born in Texas in the year '89,
I can ride anything this side the state line.
Went down to San Antone and went to workin' cattle, And here come the sheep men and we had a battle.
There ain't no better territory in the United States, But she shore is hotter than hell's own gates.
* Additional stanzas to those printed in Cowboy Songs (New York: The Macmillan Company) There remain hundreds of unprintable stanzas.
