Yodeling Cowboy
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


My cowboy life is so happy and free
Out west where the laws don't bother me
I take my troubles like a toy
I'm just a yodeling cowboy

At the set of the sun when my work is done
On my pony I take a ride
Where the coyotes howl and the varmints prowl
With my forty-four by my side
I go down that lonesome trail just galloping long
I love to sing my yodeling cowboy song

Where a man is a man and a friend is a friend
Where all my cares and worries end
I have no troubles nothing but joy
I'm just a yodeling cowboy

At the set of the sun when my work is done
On my pony I take a ride
Where the coyotes howl and the varmints prowl
With my forty-four by my side
I go down that lonesome trail just galloping long
I love to sing my yodeling cowboy song

I can still remember how excited I was to get another Jimmie Rodgers Lp.I was too young to hear each song as they came out I was born in 1945.So I discovered each one with the moving of the record needle.What a great Legend he was.Thanks for this and all JR Uploads.

Awe pop. My pop used to sing this while we were on the road doing our boiled peanut route. He was my best friend. God I miss him. I dunno the whole song but on my pool route between pools I try to yodel the fact I'm just a lonesome gal on the road just doing my thing.
