COWBOY SPRING

It is spring, the daisies are bursting out.
It is spring, the grass is tender.
And now, the breeze is blowing so softly
Over the rolling plains.

Me and my horse go clippety, cloppety.
Me and my horse go jiggety, joggety.
As we go riding clippety, cloppety,
Over the rolling plains

I just left the Double-X ranch,
I got on my horse and rode away,
I know a pretty girl lives in the valley,
Over the rolling plains.
