"The Big Coral"

       
  1. That big husky brute from the cattle chute,
Press along to the big coral,
He should be branded on the snoot,
Press along to the big coral.
 
    Refrain:  
    Press along cowboy, press along with a cowboy yell,
Press along cowboy, press along to the big coral.
 
 
2.
The chuck we get ain't fit to eat,
Press along to the big coral,
There's rocks in the beans and sand in the meat,
Press along to the big coral.
 
    Refrain  
  3. The wrangler's out a scourin' the hills,
Press along to the big coral,
So hop in your britches and grease up your gills,
Press along to the big coral,

 
    Refrain
