I'm an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
But my legs ain't bowed
And my cheeks ain't tanned

I'm a cowboy who never saw a cow
Never roped a steer 'cause I don't know how
And I sure ain't fixin' to start in now

Yippie yi yo ki yay
Yippie yi yo ki yay

I'm an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
And I learned to ride
'Fore I learned to stand

I'm a ridin' fool who is up to date
I know every trail in the Lone Star State
'Cause I ride the range in a Ford V8

Yippie yi yo ki yay
Yippie yi yo ki yay

I know all the songs that the cowboys know
'Bout the big corral where the dogies go
'Cause I learned them all on the rad-ee-o

Hey, Yippie yi yo ki yay
Yippie yi yo ki yay
