   Song Index

As I was a-walking one morning for pleasure,
I spied a cowpuncher a riding along.
His hat was throw'd back and his spurs were a jingling
and as he approached he was singing this song:

Whooppee ti-yi-yo, get along little dogies,
It's your misfortune and none of my own.
Yippee ti-yi-yea, get along little dogies,
You know that Wyoming will be your new home.

When spring comes along we'll round up the dogies
We'll stick on their brands and we'll bob off their tails
Pick out the strays, then the herd is inspected
And the very next day we'll go out on the trail

We'll ride on the Prairies' across the wide rivers
And on through the flats where there's never a town
Our horses are weary, we're tired and we're hungry
They still, little dogies stop roaming around

Tide is acomin' and the dogies are straying
They're farther from home than they've been before
Come on lit-tle dogies it's time to be rollin'
When we get to Wyoming we'll roll no more.
