Thread Name: What's an easy yodeling cowboy song?
Subject: Lyr Add: THE BANDIT OF BRAZIL (Tex Ritter)
Try The Bandit of Brazil. A simple yodel at the the beginning and middle line of the chorus. Tex Ritter tune I think.

I am the quickest on the trigger, When I shoot I shoot to kill,

I am a legend down in Rio, Where they talk about me still,

I robbed a rich ranchero, He was rich beyond compare,

And for ransome held his daughter, she was young and she was fair,

Oh lay, me Gon Goucheros, Ia m the bandit of Brazil,

Oh Lay EEEeee, I'm a bad Man when I shoot I shoot to kill,

She was young and she was tender, There was love light in her eyes,

When in my arms she did surrender, very much to my surprize,

I refused her father's ransome, Oh, I kept the greater prize

Now at night we ride together, Under blue Brazilian skies,.

repeat Chorus twice.

Good luck finding a melody track, the only recording I have seen of this song is by Nicky Seeger, wonder where he is now.
