Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Yo he rides the rodeo
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You got to see him yodel ay-hee-ho

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You know he rides the rodeo
Up 'round the Colorado shore
Down by the Ohio

Sometimes even New Orleans
Down by Mardi Gras
And all the ten-gallon girls
Love to hear him yodel ay-hee-ho

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He rides the rodeo
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You got to see him yodel ay-hee-ho

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Still rides the rodeo
Ever since he was a little lad
Loves the rodeo

Bucking broncs, sipping wine
You got to see him go
All the ten-gallon blue jean girls
Love to hear him yodel ay-hee-ho

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He rides the rodeo
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You got to see him yodel ay-hee-ho-ho-ho

You ought to see him in the rodeo
And when he's ridin', goin' too darn fast
You ought to hear the people scream and shout
And they call him
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Lonesome Cowboy Bill

My, my, Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You got to ride the rodeo
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
You got to see him yodel ay-hee-ho
You got to see him yodel ay-hee-ho

He gone, Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Gone, Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He's the Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He's the Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He's the Lonesome Cowboy Bill
