EL RANCHO GRANDE
(English lyrics Bartley Costello,
Spanish lyrics by J. del Moral, Music by Emilio Uranga)
CHO: I love to roam out yonder
Out where the buffalo wander
Free as the eagle flying
I'm roping and a-tying
I'm roping and a-tying.
Give me my ranch and my cattle
Far from the great city's rattle
Give me a big herd to battle
For I just love herding cattle.
CHO: Alla en la rancho grande
Alla donde vivia
Habia una ranche rita
Que alegre me decia
Que alegra me decia.
Te voy hacer tus calzones
Como los usa el ranchero
Te los comienzo de lana
Te los acabo de cuero.
Sometimes the winter storms tearing,
Set all the cattle a-raring.
But when the winter is over,
We're sure enough in the clover.
Give me the wide-open spaces,
That's just where I know my place is.
I love the rodeo dearly,
And the big round-up yearly.
Though we play seven eleven,
My ranch is next door to Heaven
We smile when we take a beatin',
But hang a rat when he's cheatin'.
Recorded by Jim Mallory and his Range Riders
