Subject: Lyr Add: THE BIG CORRAL
From: GUEST,Sluefoot Sue
Date: 17 Jul 00 - 07:55 PM

Here is a great cowboy tune I couldn't find in the DT:

THE BIG CORRAL

That ugly brute from the cattle chute,
    Press along to the Big Corral.
He should be branded on the snoot,
    Press along to the Big Corral.

CHORUS: Press along cowboy,
Press along with a cowboy yell.
Press along with a noise, a big noise,
Press along to the Big Corral.

Early in the morning 'bout half-past four,
    Press along to the Big Corral.
You'll hear him open his face to roar,
    Press along to the Big Corral. CHORUS

The wrangler's out a combing the hills,
    Press along to the Big Corral.
So jump in your britches and grease up your gills,
    Press along to the Big Corral. CHORUS

The chuck we get ain't fit to eat,
    Press along to the Big Corral.
There's rocks in the beans and sand in the meat,
    Press along to the Big Corral. CHORUS

That ugly gink is a half-breek Chink,
    Press along to the Big Corral.
He makes our biscuits in the sink,
    Press along to the Big Corral. CHORUS

From the book "He Was Singing This Song by Jim Bob Tinsley pp. 140 A collection of forty-eight traditional songs of the American Cowboy, with words, music, pictures, and stories. ^^

"The Big Corral" was written by Romaine Lowdermilk, of Wickenberg, AZ, in 1922. He was a working cowboy, later a singing cowboy, but went on to be a partner in a very successful guest ranch. Rancho Mañana, near historic Cave Creek and Scottsdale, AZ, is still open for guests.

Music is in the Silver Burdett "New Music Horizons, 5, 1946, 1955, pp. 214-215. If you don't have this one yet, Joe, I will email the music to you.

Lowdermilk based his song on the gospel hymn,

Lyr. Add: PRESS ALONG TO GLORY LAND
by Emmett Sidney Dean, 1876-1951
(version by Rowe and Dean)

O ransomed souls, with joyous song,
Press along to Glory-land;
Extolling grace that saves the race,
Press along to glory-land.

Press along, glad soul, press along,
Giving out the message grand;
Letting love, God's love, be your song,
Press along to glory-land.

Anyone have this gospel hymn in their collection?
Don't know if these are Dean's original words. The song "The Big Corral" is based on this gospel hymn.

I have been searching IN VAIN for the lyrics to an old gospel song, Press Along to Glory Land, written my James Rowe and published by Emmett Sidney Dean.

A portion of the lyric are:
O ransomed souls, with joyous song,
Press along to Glory-land;
Extolling grace that saves the race,
Press along to glory-land.

Press along, glad soul, press along,
Giving out the message grand;
Letting love, God's love, be your song,
Press along to glory-land.

I greatly desire to find the rest of the lyrics. I would appreciate it if someone could supply them.

They're related songs - best to keep themn together and just augment the thread title.

PRESS ALONG TO GLORY LAND
by Emmett Sidney Dean, 1876-1951
(version by Rowe and Dean)

O ransomed souls, with joyous song,
Press along to Glory-land;
Extolling grace that saves the race,
Press along to glory-land.

Press along, glad soul, press along,
Giving out the message grand;
Letting love, God's love, be your song,
Press along to glory-land.

The foe may rave, but Christ will save,
Press along to Glory-land;
The storm may sweep, but He will keep,
Press along to glory-land.
CHORUS

To join once more those gone before,
Press along to Glory-land;
With saints to sing before the King,
Press along to glory-land.
CHORUS

The crown to wear forever there,
Press along to Glory-land;
To sing His praise through countless days,
Press along to glory-land.
CHORUS

I'll gladly post the tune - but Mudcat MIDI FTP isn't working just now, so I can't upload MIDI files. If you need the tune before I can post it, send me an e-mail.
