OH, THEY'RE TOUGH, MIGHTY TOUGH IN THE WEST (Clive Erard / Frank Trafford) George Elrick - 1937 Nat Gonella & His Georgians - 1937 Ambrose & His Orch. - 1937 Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the west And they've lots of curly hair upon their chest You can never be a lily If you want to be hillbilly 'Cos they're tough mighty tough in the West Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And your trigger must be quicker than the rest In Chicago there are tough guys But the really treat-em-rough guys Where are they (you tell us son) in the West (Singing Oh Susannah, won't you marry me And we'll all live as long as the old oak tree) Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And they never change their socks or change their vest Soap and water's just a laugh For they never take a bath 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And a stranger there can never stand the test They'd a Russian guy called Bostik But he scrammed to Vladivostik And they're tough, mighty tough in the West (Singing Oh Susannah, won't you marry me And we'll all live as long as the old oak tree) Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And the sheriff goes to jail to take a rest Those guys never wear galoshes And they try on bolts and washers 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And they measure sixty-four around the chest Every hair upon their torso Is like a steel string, only more so 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West (Singing Oh Susannah, won't you marry me And we'll all live as long as the old oak tree) Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And their beards are thicker than an eagles nest Dentists there have caveman manners As they pull out teeth with spanners 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West You can never let your trigger finger rest And if times are going hard You just double cross your pard 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West (Singing Oh Susannah, won't you marry me And we'll all live as long as the old oak tree) Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And another thing those hombres can digest Prussic acid in the licquor But them guys are never sicker 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And the one who lives the longest shoots the best If you dare go to bed When you wake up you'll be dead 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - December 2004) ***** Verse as sung by the animated character, Hank The Cowboy in the "Hank Rides Again" stories featured in the BBC Children's TV Show "Whirligig" (1950): Howdy Folks! Oh, they're tough, mighty tough in the West And your trigger must be quicker than the rest When there's rootin' and a-tootin' I'm the guy that does the shootin' 'Cos they're tough, mighty tough in the West
