Up in the morning at the break of day

You'll hear a big bearded cowboy at the chuck wagon say
"Gather 'round boys, the coffee's hot on the fire


There's a full day of branding, we're heating the iron
I want to smell that scorched hair and burning hide


The horses have grain boys, they're ready to ride
Roll up your bed rolls and jump in your boots


Daylight is a-wastin', boys, it's out of the shoots"



Come on and ride, cowboy, ride

Roll up your riatas and pull your sombreros down tight
We're going to ride, ride, ride where the trail will wind


You'd better drive, drive, drive or we'll leave you behind
Come on and ride, ride, ride, cowboy, ride




It's a beautiful morning and you've had a good rest

You ropers get ready to be at your best
Saddle them ponies and tighten the cinch (Yahoo!)


Pull on your gloves and take your hat off the fence

We'll take the cattle to market, and after they're sold


You can all let your hair down, get lazy or bold
Riding to town to find a lady or two
She'll take you by the arms and shake the dust off your boots




Come on and ride, cowboy, ride

Roll up your riatas and pull your sombreros down tight


We're going to ride, ride, ride where the trail will wind
You'd better drive, drive, drive or we'll leave you behind

Come on and ride, ride, ride, cowboy, ride



Come on and ride, cowboy, ride
Roll up your riatas and pull your sombreros down tight


We're going to ride, ride, ride where the trail will wind

You'd better drive, drive, drive or we'll leave you behind

Come on and ride, ride, ride, cowboy, ride
