Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: The Cowboy / Cowboy's Soliloquy
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Yippie Kye Aye, Yippie Kye O
I vote for "The Old Chisolm Trail" The syntax and rhythm fit also it is known that cowboys on the trail were asked to add verses at one of the way stations they stopped at to earn their bread. While most versions only show four or five verses, the song has many more and not all of them rated "G" One example: Ten dollar hoss and a fourty dollar saddle, Tired of hearding this crappy ole cattle, Come a Ky yie yippy yippy kie yippy aye come a ki yi yippy yippy Aye. My two cents kindest reguards Neil
