Cattle Call
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Woo - hoo - ooo - oop - to - do - do)
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Doo - do - do - do - op - to - do.)

The cattle are prowlin' the coyotes are howlin'
Way out where the dogies bawl
Where spurs are a - jinglin', a cowboy is singin'
This lonesome cattle call.
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Woo - hoo - ooo - oop - to - do - do)
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Doo - do - do - do - op - to - do.)

He rides in the sun 'til his days work is done
And he rounds up the cattle each fall
Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do
Singin' his cattle call.

For hours he will ride on the range far and wide
When the night winds blow up a squall
His heart was a feather in all kinds of weather
He sang his cattle call.

--- Instrumental ---

He's brown as a berry from ridin' the prairie
And he sings with an ol' western drawl
Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do
Singin' his cattle call.

(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Woo - hoo - ooo - oop - to - do - do)
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Doo - do - do - do - op - to - do.)

(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Woo - hoo - ooo - oop - to - do - do)
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Doo - do - do - do - op - to - do.)

(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Woo - hoo - ooo - oop - to - do - do)
(Woo - hoo - woo - ooo - to - do)
(Doo - do - do - do - op - to - do)...

Dwight I think could sing ANYTHING and make it a great song. I love him...

Dwight could sing the phone book all day long and all night - I'd buy it and listen 24/7
:-D

Saw Dwight about 1982 singing at the Kansas State Fair on the Farm Bureau free stage. For FREE. He was singing lone cold lonesome blues. My Dad and I stopped and listened - we were there looking at ag exhibits, and were drawn in by the sincerity of Dwight Yoakam.
My Dad remarked, “this will be the last time we see him for free.”
Wow what a timeless talent!!!

Alice Lelean

Awesome!

grew up hearing Eddie Arnold singing this...  ;-)
Thanks, Dwight!

Can't think of another artist who could have nailed this Eddie Arnold classic any better.
