GUEST,Iona Lyr Req: Cowpoke Polka (Tim Spencer) (9) Lyr Req: Cowpoke Polka (Tim Spencer) 03 Feb 12

This song is from the movie "Lights of old Santa Fe", and is sung in whole towards the beginning of the movie, and then in part during the medley at the end.

here's the lyrics as I can make them out.

Swing your partner to the right
Swing her back and hold her tight
Swing her far into the night
That's the cowpoke polka
Do-se-do and promenade
To some other little maid
Swing her once and then you trade
That's the cowpoke polka
One little bird and three red hens
The bird hops out and the crow hops in
Chicken in the bread pan, pickin' out dough
The crow hops out and away you go
Circle late and swing your part [this is the line I'm not sure of]
Swing her easy, not to hard
Rattle your spurs 'till you get tired [??]
That's the cowpoke polka
