Out on the plain, down in Santa Fe
I met a cowboy ridin' the range one day
And as he passed along, I heard him singin'
A most peculiar Cowboy song
It was a ditty, he learned in the city

Come-a-ti-i-yi-o
Come-a ti-yippie-i-ey
Git along
Git along little dogie

Git along
You better be on your way
Git along get hip little dogie
As he trucked him on down

The old fairway
Singin' the cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Come-a-ti-i-yi-o
Come-a ti-yippie-i-ey

Singin' a cowboy song, he's just too much
He's got a knocked out western accent
With a Harlem touch
That cat was raised on loco weed

He's what you call a swing half breed
Singin' the cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Come-a-ti-i-yi-o
Come-a ti-yippie-i-ey

Singin' a cowboy song
Come-a-ti-i-yi-o
Come-a-ti-yippie-i-ey-three times
Git along little dogie better be on your way
