The words in Lomax and Lingenfelter and Dwyer are the same, but on the recording transcribed in the latter, Stephens varied the refrain from verse to verse.
1. Hi-yoo, hi-yoo-oo-oo,
Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo.
2. Yoo-oo-oo-oo-oo
Hey, cattle! Whoo-oop!
3. Hayyup, cattle! cattle!
Hi-yoo, hi-yoo-oo-oo.

The music is the same in Lingenfelter and Dwyer, and White; different from Larkin, and different from Lomax and Lomax.
