A listener has requested the lyrics of the song from the '40's. Does anyone have them?

BESSIE THE HEIFER

My daddy gave a calf to me for a Christmas present once
I picked a little heifer out, Cause both of us was runts
She never had no sense but she grew up alright somehow
And when it comes to giving milk, she's an educated cow

Oh Bessie the Heifer, the queen of all the cows
She gave more milk than any law allows
In the morning she gave pasteurized
At night she give homogenized
Bessie the Heifer, the queen of all the cows

I took her to the county fair to try to win a prize
She knew just what was going on, I saw it in her eyes
The contest made her nervous she tried so hard to please
That when I tried to milk her, all I got was cottage cheese

Oh Bessie the Heifer, the queen of all the cows
She gave more milk than any law allows
In the morning she gave pasteurized
At night she give homogenized
Bessie the Heifer, the queen of all the cows

I planted me a tater patch to try to earn some dough
To take a short vacation with some city folks I know
But no one else would milk the cow, no matter how I'd nag
So Pa took my vacation, leaving me to hold the bag.

BESSIE THE HEIFER
Recorded by: "Little" Jimmy Dickens
Writer: Boudleaux Bryant and Jimmy Dickens

[C] My daddy gave a calf to me
For a Christmas present [G7] once
I picked a little heifer out
'Cause both of us were [C] runts
She never had no sense
But she grew up allright some-[G7] how
And when it came to givin' milk
She was an educated [C] cow.

CHORUS
[C] Bessie the heifer
The [F] queen of all [C] cows
She gave more milk
Than any law al-[G7] lows
In the [C] mornin' she gave pasteurized
At [F] nite she gave homogenized
[C] Bessie the heifer
The [G7] queen of all the [C] cows.

I took her to the county fair
To try to win a prize
She knew what was goin' on
I saw it in her eyes
The contest made her nervous
She tried so hard to please
But when I tried to milk her
All I got was cottage cheese.

CHORUS

I planted me a 'tater patch
To earn some extra dough
To take a short vacation
With some city folks I know
But no one else would milk the cow
No matter how I'd nag
So pa took my vacation
Leavin' me to hold the bag.

Thanks, "Guest". The lyrics have been passed on and I hope the listener appreciates your efforts as a 'Catter; I surely do.
