I couldn't find the lyrics, but here's some background information I found at http://www.musicweb-international.com/encyclopaedia/d/D181.HTM

    DeZURIK SISTERS

    A yodeling act popular '30s-40s-50s, working as a duet comprising mainly Carolyn (b '19, Royalton MN) and sister Mary Jane DeZurik (b '17, d '81). Noted for sky-high yodels, they could also make their yodels sound like chickens and were later known also as the Cackle Sisters. Appeared as the DeZurik Sisters on the WLS Barn Dance '36-49 and as the Cackle Sisters on the Grand Ole Opry '44-8: during these years they appeared on each show every other Saturday, on WSM one week and WLS the next. Mary Jane retired '48 to raise a family, replaced by younger sister Lorraine; the new duo appeared on the Midwestern Hayride '49-50. They disbanded early '50s and Carolyn joined the Prairie Ramblers which included her husband Rusty Gill. The Ramblers and Carolyn went on to perform on ABC television in Chicago in the mid-'50s-60s on such shows as Chicago Parade (one of the first morning shows in Chicago), Crazy Acres, It's Polka Time and Polka Go Round. The DeZurik Sisters recorded only a handful of 78s, though some collectors own transcriptions from Checkerboard Squares radio show. One of these 78 sides is 'Arizona Yodeler' which is still played to this day on radio stations across the country and has been issued on some German CDs.

False alarm on the MP3, but it's two other songs by the Cackle Sisters, and worth the download.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE ARIZONA YODELER (from Kenny Roberts)
From: GUEST,Gene
Date: 19 Feb 05 - 10:59 AM

you have to listen to Kenny on Rose's Site
to get the FEEL OF THE YODEL PART

THE ARIZONA YODELER
Kenny Roberts

1. Way out in Arizona in a town they call Winona
Where the folks you meet all know a thing or two
With a lad of great ambition who had set as his life's mission
To excel upon his yodel-lee-del-lay-de-hoo

BRIDGE: Oh he'd play a little tune on his Spanish guitar
He'd mingle with his song this sweet refrain
[long yodel refrain]

2. In the evenin' in the cactus he would get a lot of practice
With his [yodel refrain]
As his cattle he was trailin' you would always hear him wailin'
On his [yodel refrain]

BRIDGE

3. Soon he met a little maiden who with talent too was laden
And she fell for him like flowers for the dew
And he wished not to evade her so he used to serenade her
With his [yodel refrain]

BRIDGE

[Yodel on out]

there are a couple of more verses on the record lady site with the
Cackle sisters...

Once a big shot from the city heard him warbling a ditty
and accompanied with his yodel...
and he said look here my sonny you can make a lot of money
with a yodel......

Then our hero took to dipping(?)
gripping dripping(?)
he was singing over the radio to you
(?)earning he would then be returning

any other guesses on the words...?

This first line doesn't make any sense, but it's the closest I can get:

Then our hero took to [dippin'?] past [or "passed"] his [grippin'?] to the [drippin'?]
Who was singin' o'er the radio to you.
If the Swiss heard what he's earning, green with envy they'd be turning
When he'd [yodel]

p.s. It IS technically possible to link directly to a song, but Rose has asked that we not do that. She calls it "bandwidth theft." (See this page.) I don't exactly understand that, but I'm willing to honor her request anyway.

You might try with the names Curley Fletcher, and Arizona Wranglers.
Possibly by Arsenio Rodriguez.

MalcolmS, you might be able to find contact information for family members by looking at DeZurik Sisters stuff online. I saw comments from some of them while I was looking for songs to listen to (sorry, didn't think to save links and all I remember is that one was on a site with something about "Edith" in the name)

This one has quite a few songs to listen to (and comments from family members) but doesn't seem to include The Arizona Yodeler.

just added to another thread and noticed this one. If you are still looking for the publisher details, you might like to go to www.jasmine-records.co.uk and contact them. They have a CD by Australia's Wayne Horsburgh that features the song so may be able to point you in the right direction.

Australia's Mary Schneider also recorded it back in the 80s but I don't think that version is available at the moment

I know this thread is WAY old, but I wanted to contribute. I threw it all together in one post and tried to make sense of their message.

The Arizona Yodeler – DeZurik Sisters a.k.a. The Cackle Sisters

1. Way out in Arizona in a town they call Winona
Where the folks you meet all know a thing or two
Lived a lad of great ambition who had set as his life's mission
To excel upon his yodel-lee-del-lay-de-hoo
