CHEYENNE (Shy Ann) (Harry H. Williams / Egbert Van Alstyne) Billy Murray - 1906 (Indian War Whoops) Way out in old Wyoming long ago Where coyotes lurk while night winds howl and blow A cowboy's lusty voice rang out "Hello" And echoed through the valley down below Then came back a maiden's answer sweet and clear Cowboy tossed his hat up in the air Said he, "I've come to take you right away from here Cheyenne they say is miles away, but they've a preacher there" Then she just drooped her eye, she was so very shy So shy, oh my!, and then he made reply Oooh-oooh-oooh Shy Ann, shy Ann, hop on my pony There's room here for two, Dear But after the ceremony We'll both ride back home, Dear, as one On my pony from old Cheyenne (Indian War Whoops) They rode that night and nearly half the day Cheyenne was sixty-seven miles away But when at last they galloped up the street The cowboy's pride was really hard to beat On his arm, his future bride a-carrying But beneath the little church's dome Said she, "I feel like turning back, not marrying" His face got red and then he said, "You will or you'll walk home If you ride back today, you honour and obey" "I will" she cried, then he was heard to say Oooh-oooh-oooh Shy Ann, shy Ann, hop on my pony There's room here for two, Dear But after the ceremony We'll both ride back home, Dear, as one On my pony from old Cheyenne (Indian War Whoops) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2007)
