Get along ya old red cow, you’re looking rough
Out here in the desert, finding feed can be tough.
give it all to your calf, till you’re gaunt and you’re thin,
but the cowboy still loves you, for the calf you bring in.
Get along ya brockle faced cow, with the upturned horn,
if you turn back I’ll cuss the day you’re born
you kicked hard the cowboy when he branded your hide,
but the cowboy still loves you, for the calf at your side
get along little doggies, get along ya old range cow,
and calve unassisted, you’d better know how
and bring back a calf, protect him with your life,
and the cowboy will love you, and so will his wife.
Get along ya old roan cow, on this ranch for a while,
and calves that you’ve raised have made this cowboy smile,
but if you come back open, your time here is done,
but the cowboy’ll still love you, in a hamburger bun,
ya the cowboy will love you, between a hamburger bun.
