When I was a cowboy out on the Western Plain.
When I was a cowboy out on the Western Plain.
Well, I made a half a million,
Working hard on the bridle reins.

Come a cow-cow yicky. come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.

What was the greatest battle ever on the Western Plain?
What was the greatest battle ever on the Western Plain?
When me and a bunch of cowboys rode into Jesse James.

Come a cow-cow yicky, come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.
Come a cow-cow yicky, come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.

Now me and a bunch of cowboys rode into Jesse James.
When me and a bunch of cowboys rodc into Jesse James.
Well, those bullets were a-flying just like a shower of rain.

Come a cow-cow ylcky come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.
Come a cow-cow ylcky come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.

What was the greatest battle ever on Bunker Hill?
What was the greatest battle ever on Bunker Hill?
When me and a bunch of cowboys rode into Buffalo Bill.

Come a cow-cow yicky, come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.
Come a cow-cow ylcky, come a cow-cow yicky, yicky yea.
