Tie your horse up tight, so he'll know no harm
Put your hat and your gun
 Beside you on the chair 
Don't forget, you've got to say a little prayer
 Little cowboy, you'd better hit the sandman trail
Or you'll be late for roundup time you know
If you wanna be a cowboy, you'd better rest a while  Little cowboy baby of the old corral  Little cowboy baby of the old corral
