Cowboys get your gear, branding time is near

A cowboy’s life we learn, a branding iron to burn

Like a cow without a brand, a rustler on your land

Round up on the range


There’s a long horn on the loose, go rope him quickly with a noose

Now drag him out the damp, shoo him back to camp

If you loose the rope too soon, he’ll take off to the moon

Long horn running loose, yeah


Cowboy you gotta love your horse, go rub him down each night of course

Feed him oats and grain, keep him out the rain

Your life depends on him, together ride the rim

Cowboy love your horse, yeah
