COWPUNCHER’S CANTATA (Max Bygraves) Max Bygraves I travelled across to America And when I arrived in America They said, “Son, you know, you can’t go wrong If you finish your show with a cowboy song” So I practiced all day to get the song right And I dreamed of those songs all through the night. That night I heard the wild goose cry He’d got mixed up with the riders in the sky Tried to sleep, but it was in vain Have you ever tried sleeping on a mule train Iyyyyeeeeeeiiiiiiiiioooooooowwwww! My heart goes where the mule train goes And I must go where the mule train goes Brother goose, mother goose, don’t you fear ‘Cos I’ve arrived, and to prove it I’m ‘ere. Iyyyyeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiooooooooooooooooowwwww! Aha, Yma Sumac? The riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name If you’re looking for the wild goose, he’s on the mule train So cowboy mend your ways today, forget your life of sin And you will be in time to meet the shrimp boats coming in Oyoyoyoy, giddup there, go on old paint there, go on My heart goes where the shrimp boats go And I must go where the shrimp boats go I’m gonna ride that dusty trail ‘Cos they’ve locked up my lover in Allentown jail (Spoken) You know this kinda reminds me of the first time I blew into Tombstone city. Yessir, that night I slept on the prairie and all night long those prairie dogs kept howlin’. I couldn’t understand why they kept howlin’, then I found out. Ain’t no trees on the prairie, jest cactus. If ever the devil was born Without a pair of horns It was you, Sonny Boy. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - May 2010)
