"Git Along Little Dogies"

           
    1. As I was a walking one morning for pleasure,
I spied a cowpuncher a riding alone;
His hat was throwed back and his spurs was a-jingling,
And as he approach'd he was singing this song:
   
      Refrain:    
      Whoopee ti-yi-yo, git along, little dogies,
It's your misfortune and none of my own;
Whoopee ti-yi-yo, git along little dogies,
You know that Wyoming will be your new home.
   
   
2.

Early in the spring we round up the dogies,
Mark 'em and brand 'em and bob off their tails;
Drive up our horses, load up the chuck-wagon,
Then throw the dogies out on the trail.

   
      Refrain    
    3. It's whoopin' and yellin' and a-drivin' them dogies;
Oh, how l wish that you would go on.
It's a-whoopin' and punchin' and go on-a, little dogies
For you know that Wyoming is to be your new home.
   
      Refrain
