Pecos Bill Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Pecos Bill was quite a cowboy down in Texas
The Western Superman to say the least
He was the roughest, toughest critter
Never known to be a quitter
'Cause he never had no fear of man, nor beast

So yippee-i-ay-i-ya, yippee-i-o
He's the toughest critter west of the Alamo

Pecos roped through raging cyclone out of nowhere
He saddled it and straddled it with ease
While that cyclone bucked and flitted
Pecos rolled a smoke and lit it
And he tamed that ordinary wind down to a breeze

So yippee-i-ay-i-ya, yippee-i-o
He's the toughest critter west of the Alamo

Pecos lost his way while traveling on the desert
(Water, water, water)
It was ninety miles across the burning sand
(Water, water, water)
He knew he'd never reach the border
If he didn't get some water
So he got a stick and dug the Rio Grande

While a tribe of painted Indians did a war dance
Pecos started shooting up their little game
He gave those redskins such a shakeup
That they jumped out of their makeup
That's how the Painted Desert got it's name

While reclining on a cloud, high over Texas
With his guns he made the stars evaporate
As he watched them all declining
He left one brightly shining
As the emblem of the Lone Star Texas State

So yippee-i-ay-i-ya, yippee-i-o
As the emblem of the Lone Star Texas State
