Loverly song. Slim Critchlow.

THE SANTA FE TRAIL
by James Grafton Rogers, 1911
 
Say, pard have ye sighted a schooner
A-hittin' the Santa Fe Trail?
They made it here Monday or sooner
With a water keg roped on the rail,
With Daddy and Ma on the mule-seat
And somewhere around on the way
A tow-headed gal on a pony
A-janglin' for old Santa Fe
   Oh -- Ah ? Oh --
A-janglin' for old Santa Fe.

I seen her ride down the arroyos
Way back in the Arkansas sand,
With a smile like an acre of sunflowers,
An' her little brown quirt in her hand
She straddled the pinto so airy
And rode like she carried the mail,
And her eyes near set fire to the prairie
'Long side of the Santa Fe Trail
   Oh -- Ah ? Oh --
Alongside of the Santa Fe Trail.

Oh, I know a gal down on the border
That I'd ride to El Paso to sight;
I'm acquaint with the high-steppin' order,
And I've sometimes kissed some gals goodnight;
But Lord, they're all ruffles and beadin'
Or afternoon tea by the pail,
Compared to the kind of stampedin'
That I get on the Santa Fe Trail
   Oh -- Ah -- Oh --
That I get on the Santa Fe Trail.

I don't know her narne, and the prairie
When it comes to a gal's pretty wide,
Or shorter from hell to hilary
Than it is on this Santa Fe ride,
But I guess I'll make Cedars by sundown
And campin' may be in a swale,
I'll come on a gall and a pinto
Alongside of the Santa Fe Trail
   Oh -- Ah -- Oh --
Alongside of the Santa Fe Trail.

In the Peter Bellamy version (also Lisa Null, Finest Kind, etc.) the "Oh -- Ah-- Oh--" becomes "Yo-ho! Yo-ho!", and it and the final line repeat on each verse.

"Yo-ho! Yo-ho!" is common - I think following Ed McCurdy. It sings better than Oh ah and lends itself to a short whoop after the first "ho" which is how I sing it. It just seemed to _want_ a short whoop there. There are a few othere minor differences, too. Art Thieme would be a good person to ask the source.

I posted what I believe is the "correct" (well, the original) version. Taken from Katie Lee who, undoubtedly, though not specifically stated, got it direct from Rogers. The song _did_ go into tradition, however.

Jules Allen recorded the song for Victor in Los Angeles 8 April 1929 under the title 'Longside the Santa Fe Trail'. With minor variations - for example 'fluffles' and 'when you're huntin' one girl it's some wide' - the lyrics are basically what is posted above by Abby. Jules sings 'Oh-oh oh, oh' for the first 2 stanzas and changes to 'yo-ho oh, oh' for the final two - maybe that's where the yo-ho originated. Allen's recording was reissued on LP in 1973 on Richard Weize's Folk Variety label. Weize had the following interesting note:

Although Jules Allen appears not to have known it when he recorded this song and printed it in his 1933 volume 'Cowboy Lore', it was published in sheet music with the title 'The Santa Fe Trail' in 1911 by Comet Publishing Co of Denver Colorado. The words were by James Grafton Rogers, a prominent citizen of Colorado who had recently celebrated his 90th birthday; the melody and arrangement were by John H. Gower, a Denver church organist. When a very young man, Mr Rogers worked on a New York City newspaper and wrote numerous verses and songs that he hoped would qualify for Broadway shows. Later, he became a distinguished attorney, served as Dean of the University of Colorado Law School, and held many other important posts in his home state of Colorado and in the federal government in Washington DC ...

Allen's recording has been reissued recently on CD in Yazoo's wonderful 2000 series of compilations: Various Artists 'When I Was a Cowboy Vol 1: Early American Songs of the West' Yazoo 2022.

Cheers, Stewie.

Finest Kind learned "Santa Fe Trail" from Peter Bellamy. Peter Bellamy learned it from Lisa Null. Lisa Null learned it from her 2nd grade teacher back in elementary school, in the late 1940s. (This history provided by Lisa Null.)

I'm glad to see Stewie's post on this in Grafton getting credit for the song & himself. He wrote other classics ("Town of Old Dolores" also much stolen, & around which she bases her book, eg) but according to Lee, 'The Santa Fe Trail' is one of the Most Copyrighted & stolen songs in America. Long story. Seems there is also an unrelated dance band song, 'Along The Santa Fe Trail.'

As I recall, Skip Gorman has also recorded it, with a yodel instead of the "Yo Ho." I love Finestkind's singing, but the yo ho makes it sound like they can't decide if they're singing a sea chanty or a cowboy song. But maybe that's the effect they wanted.

If you ever wanted to be convinced of the importance of proper punctuation in language, consider the difference between "Yo Ho!" and "Yo! Ho'!"

Peter Bellamy's recording is stunning.

I see there's a version of this song in the Lomaxes 'Cowboy Songs and other Frontier Ballads'. The argument for its being 'one of the most copyrighted & stolen songs in America' seems to be well substantiated by the copyright being attributed to Sherwin and Klickmann 1934 (!) Robbins Music Corp. in this instance.

Aside from this...what fabulous lyrics! viz. "and they drink fancy tea by the pail etc. etc" A great tune too. Love it.

Our own Art Theme does a fine job with this song on his "That's the Ticket" album. I might mention that I think Mark Gardner and I do the song justice on our cd too, Frontier Favorites:
thread.cfm?threadid=61498&messages=15
We do the "Yo ho" on the chorus. We also found an original manuscript by Rogers in the Denver Public Library. He's from these parts you know. One line there was "But Lord, they're all _fluffles_ and beadin',". So that's how we do it.

I grew up with the Ed McCurdy recording--and in my travels around the country (from park job to park job) I always kept a box of cassettes of folksongs in the front seat. Dad recorded them all for me. Singing along is a great way to stay alert while you're driving, and that is a wonderful road song.

When I was a kid, we sang a song in school about the Sante Fe trail, totally different than this. It was very slow, and in a minor key. All I remember was singing,

"Plod along, plod on the Sante Fe Trail
Plod along, plod on the Sante Fe Trail"

It may be the most descriptive, authentic, un-romantic line ever to be written in folk music.. :-)

While shadows [C] hide you - just like a [D7] pretty purple veil

There's a song called "Along the Santa Fe Trail" done by the Sons of the Pioneers, I think from an old Roy Rogers western, that is very pretty and has stayed with me since I first heard it. The only line I can remember now is
"Well what do you know, it's mornin' already
Just look at the sun comin' over the hill..."

Beautiful melody!

Lyr. Add: The Santa Fe Trail
(Powder River Jack Lee Version)

Say, Pard! Have yuh sighted a schooner, way out on the Santa Fe Trail,
They made it by Monday or sooner, with a water keg tied on the tail;
There was Pappy and Maw on the mule-seat, and somewhere along by the way
A little tow-headed gal on a pinto, jest a-dangling fer old Santa Fe.

Chorus
YO-HO-HO, YO-HO-O-HO
Way out on the Santa Fe Trail.

I saw her ride down the arroyo, 'way out on the Arkansas sand,
With a smile like an acre of sunflowers, and a little brown quirt in her hand;
She mounted her pinto so airy, and rode like she carried the mail,
And her eyes nigh set fire to the prairie, 'way out on the Santa Fe Trail.

I know a gal down by the border, I would ride tuh El Paso to sight,
Got acquainted with her shippin' cattle, and I sometimes kiss some gals goodnight.
But Lord, they're all fruffles and *sweetin', and afternoon tea by the pail,
But I'll stick to me sorter *Sam beatin', way out on the Santa Fe Trail.

We mebbe'll make Tooner by sundown, when yore huntin' some gal it's some way,
And 'tis shorter from Hell to Hilary than it is on the old Santa Fe.
And if we make Tooner by sundown, where a tank may be made in the swale,
I will ride with my gal on a pinto, way out on the Santa Fe Trail.

*sweetin' - candy. Sam beatin' - liquor.

Note by Lee- "The Yo-Ho-Ho-ing, etc., on the range, was like the wailing that we sung to the cattle, and the punchers were not averse to letting their voices out in lusty tones that would sometimes echo for miles. The wailing chorus is sung to air same as verse.

With sheet music, p. 18-19, "Cowboy Songs," 1938, Powder River Jack H. Lee, Deer Lodge, Montana, printed by The McKee Printing Company, Butte, Montana.
Rogers didn't ever make a big to-do over all the 'cowboy' singers who stole his songs, but he should have sued Lee for this really bad 'remake'.

Th first paragraph of Lee's Introduction to his "Cowboy Songs" deserves reading- take a deep breath:

"In giving you some of my cowboy songs for publication I wish to say first hand that you will find both the words and music as near correct as it has been possible for us to preserve the original themes and altho it is true that there has always been various versions of American folk songs, the same does not apply so much to cowboy songs as to permit a general revising of the melodies and words which has been done in a way since the advent of radio that not only changes the meaning, but also tends to obliterate from the public mind of today, the fact that there was a general sameness to the airs or melody,
and to the authentic songs of the western rangeland of the days when the great trail herds were being driven north from Texas to the markets of the north and to the feeding grounds of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, the Dakotas and other states where the cattle were fattened before they were driven to the shipping points." End sentence and paragraph.

The lyrics offered by Toadfrog (02-04-04) present somewhat of a mystery. This song was recorded in the 1940's by the Glenn Miller orchestra. The melody is rather plaintive, but the lyrics pose several questions; I believe it to be otherworldly.   

"Angels come to paint the desert nightly
when the moon is beaming brightly
along the Santa Fe Trail

Stardust scattered all along the highway
on a rainbow colored skyway
along the Santa Fe Trail

Beside you I'm riding every hill and dale
while shadows hide you just like a pretty purple veil
thereby hangs a tale

I've found you, and the mountains that surround you
are the walls I built around you
along the Santa Fe Trail"

"Angels", "shadows that hide you", "a tale", "walls I built around you"............this all bespeaks (at least to me) that the composer(s), Cubin/Coolidge/Groscz, had something more in mind than yet another 1940's ballad. N'est ce pas?

Plod along, plod along the Santa Fe Trail.

Oh, the desert sun is bold.
And the desert nights are cold.

On we plod through choking sand,
Cactus, sage on either hand,
Through the bare and burning land.
Oh, the desert stretches wide,
And the Indians watch us ride!

Lyr. Add: ALONG SIDE THE SANTA FE TRAIL

Say pard have you *sited a schooner
Long side of the Santa Fe trail?
They made it here Monday or sooner
They had a water keg tied on the tail.
There was daddy and ma on the mule seat;
and somewhere along the way
was a tow headed gal on a Pinto
just a janglin for old Santa Fe.

Yo-ho, ho, oh, oh,
just a janglin for old Santa Fe.

I seen her ride down the Arroya
Way back on the Arkansas sands;
She had a smile like an acre of Sunflowers
And a quirt in her little brown hand.
She mounted her Pinto so airy,
She rode like she carried the mail,
And her eyes ne'er set fire to the prairie
Long side of the Santa Fe trail.
Yoho-ho, oh, oh long side of the Santa Fe trail.

I know a gal down on the border
That I'd ride to El Paso to site.
I'm acquainted with the high-flyin' orders
And I some times kiss some gals good-night.
But lord they're all fluffles and beaden
And drink afternoon tea by the pail,
I'm not used to that sort of stampedin',
Long side of the Santa Fe trail.

Now I don't know her name on the prairie,
For when you're huntin' one gal it's some wide.
And it's shorter from hell to Helarie
Then it is on that Santa Fe ride.
So I'll try to make Plumbers, by sundown
Where a camp can be made in the swale,
Then I'll come on that gal with her Pinto
She'll be camped by the Santa Fe trail.
Yoho-ho, oh, oh she'll be camped by the Santa Fe trail.
