Chorus With angora chaps en carnival hats, Checked shirts en handkerchiefs loud, Come straddle yer horse en ride with us, Come ride with the Wild West crowd! Fer we're jest cow-eaiin' persons, There's a welcome fer every one; So whip up yer horse en lope across To the Cowboys' Re-un-ion!
'"LIGHT, STRANGER, 'LIGHT" By N. Howard Thorp
For this is the law of the Western range, When a stranger hails in sight — "Jest tie up your hoss in the old corral, En 'light, stranger, 'light 1"
T is a land of hospitable people, You're welcome in daytime or night; Always one more chair at the table, So it's '"Light, stranger, 'lightl"
We don't ask no inquisitive questions, If your people are native or white; At our ranch you will find you are welcome, So it's '"Light, stranger, 'light!"
You may be an outlaw, or preacher, Got into some place kinda tight — Some day you'll return the favor, So it's " 'Light, stranger, 'light!"
