I'm an Old Cowhand Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Writer(s): johnny mercer

I'm an old cowhand from the rio grande
But my legs ain't bowed
And my cheeks ain't tanned
I'm a cowboy who never saw a cow
Never roped a steer 'cause I don't know how
And I sure ain't fixin' to start in now
Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay
Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay

I'm an old cowhand from the rio grande
And I learned to ride
'fore I learned to stand
I'm a ridin' fool who is up to date
I know every trail in the lone star state
'cause I ride the range in a ford v8
Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay
Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay

I know all the songs that the cowboys know
'bout the big corral where the dogies go
'cause I learned them all on the rad-ee-o
Hey, yppie-yi-yo-ki-yay
Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay
