From: John M.

Hello everyone,

If you are easily offended, please STOP READING.   This thread is for mature audiences only.  Please don't post "dreadful song" or "worst song written" as you are not helping. 

Below is a traditional bawdy song titled:  'The Ruptured Cowboy'  (recording)


                Do you sing this song?  If so when/where did you learn it?


Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Mehlberg

THE RUPTURED COWBOY  (recording)
[Tune - El Rancho Grande(???)]

I am the ruptured cowboy!
I got the gonorrhea!
Aye, yah!

I got it from Maria!
She gave it to me free-ahh!
It hurts me when I pee-ahh!
Aye, yah, yah, yah!"

[Notes: This text is from BadLeRoyB  in alt.tasteless.jokes  on March 26, 1997 in the google usenet archive.   One other version is also found in that archive.  There currently seems to be no texts of this song in a Google web search.   I have field collected this song twice and there is an anonymous recording of this in the LOC folksong archive from 1962.]

John, I had a friend from Oklahoma who would often sing the verse you have above, minus the "Aye, yah, yah, yah" chorus. He never sang any other verses.

He also sang:
"Who in the hell in the God Damned nation
Shit all over Uncle Bud's plantation?
Uncle Bud and the whole damned crew,
Come here and help me saw this turd in two!"

I didn't think this existed. I first heard a boy singing this lyric at Boy Scout Camp in upstate New York, during WWII, when I was 12—14. It was a parody on a popular song of the time "El Rancho Grande." We all roared with laughter at hearing it, especially when the boy hollered "Syph, too!" Today for some reason, I thought of that song and took a chance and googled it, never expecting to find it because I thought that kid had made it up on the spot. But to my great surprise and delight, there it was!

Oh, my! I heard this at a party with Navy aviators, in Japan in 1958. I can add a couple of lines (Tune: El Rancho Grande):

I am the ruptured cowboy,
I have the gonorrhea - ahh, ha, ha haa,
I got it from Maria,
She gave it to me free - ah,
It hurts me when I pee - eah, ha, ha haa,
I have my pills and my ointment,
I have my doctor's appointment.

As the anonymous singer in version one (2005) I'm disappointed that the link no longer works.

The name of the historical Pancho Villa (once prominent in U.S. newspapers) unfortunately rhymes with "gonorrhea," leading me to suspect that the name figured in the original text.

Why "ruptured cowboy"? Just bawdifying the first syllable of "rancho"?

Though "Alla en el rancho grande" was popularized in 1939 by both Bing Crosby and Gene Autry, it was published earlier in John and Alan Lomax's "American Ballads and Folk Songs" (1934) as a traditional border song. However, it had been copyrighted in 1927 by the music publisher Salvador Cabrera, with words and music credited to Silvano Ramos.
