A bunch of jolly cowboys when roundup days were done,
Decided they would head for town to have a little fun.
As they rode gaily down the trail, they could hear the old cook say:
"I'll hang the key on the bunkhouse door and, boys, don't you be late."

CHORUS: Hang the key on the bunkhouse door 'cause we'll be late tonight.
Don't leave a light a-burnin', dear; we may not look right.
The trail is long, the goin' tough, and someone may get tight,
So hang the key on the bunkhouse door 'cause we'll be late tonight.

Those city gals are lots of fun but they can't see our ways.
Swinging through the old square dance, they call us ornery strays.
All dressed in chaps and jinglin' spurs, we sang with all our might:
"Hang the key on the bunkhouse door, 'cause we'll be late tonight." CHORUS

written and recorded by Wilf Carter aka Montana Slim

My head is full of those old obscure songs.

Those old songs are some of the best music ever recorded. That is why they are still remembered. I met Wilf Carter and he was a wonderful singer and gentleman.
