Come all of you cowboys---- all over this land
I'll sing you--- the law of the Ranger's command.
To hold a--- six-shooter and never to run
As long as---there's bullets in both of your guns.
I met a--- fair maiden whose name I don't know
I asked her--- to the round-up--- with me would she go.
She said she'd--- go with me to the cold round-up
And drink that--- hard liquor from a cold bitter cup.
We started--- for the round-up--- in the fall of the year
Expecting--- to get there, with a herd of fat steer.
When the rustlers--- broke on us, in the dead hour of night
She rose from--- her warm bed, a battle to fight.
She rose from--- her warm bed with a gun in each hand
Saying, "Come all--- you cowboys, and fight for your land."
G C G
Come all--- of you cowboys, and don't ever run
As long as--- there's bullets in both of your guns.
