GIT ALONG LITTLE DOGIES a.k.a. "When I was A-walking one morning for pleasure"
When I was a-walking one morning for pleasure
I spied a cowpuncher a-riding alone
His hat was thrown back and his spurs were a-jinglin'
And as he approached he was singing this song
Yippe ti-yi-yo, git along little dogies
It's your misfortune and none of my own
Yippee ti yi yo, git along little dogies
You know that Wyoming will be your new home
It's early in the Spring that we round up the dogies
We mark 'em and brand 'em and bob off their tails
Round up the horses, load up the chuck wagon
Then throw the dogies out on the north trail
Your mother was raised away down in Texas
Where the Jimsonweeds and the sand burrs grow
We'll fill you up on prickly pear and cholla
Until you are ready for Idaho
I'd love to know if there are other verses or other versions of this song too. Also, I'm not 100% sure that the "Then Throw the Dogies" line is word perfect. It might not be 'throw'.
