Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: Traditional.


I love all the roar and the rattle,
The roar and the bellow of cattle,
And I love to see the cowboys
At the rodeo.

The quirt, I can hear it a-singin’,
And I can see the lariats a-swingin’,
And my heart is always happy
At the rodeo.

I want to be a real cowboy girl,
And wear all the buckles and straps,
And know how it feels to have spurs on my heels,
And then strut about in my chaps.

I want to tote a six-shooter, too,
Wear a belt that is four inches wide,
And ride like the deuce on a buck-skinned cayuse,
With the cowboy I love by my side.

O da lay-ee-ee-oh, ah lay oh lay-ee dee-oh, lee-oh lay-ee, ay-ee, ay-dee oh.
Lee-oh lay-ee dee-oh, oh-lee-oh lay-ee dee-oh.
Lee-oh lay-ee oh, d’-lay-ee oh, d’lay-ee -oh, d’-lay-ay-ee.

I dream of the song, and it lingers.
In my heart, I can hear all the singers,
As they sing of love and friendship
At the rodeo.

How I’d love to ride in the open
On a great big cayuse, just a-lopin’.
I’d be happy with my cowboy
From the rodeo.

I want to be a real cowboy girl,
And wear all the buckles and straps,
And know how it feels to have spurs on my heels,
And then strut about in my chaps.

I want to wear a ten-gallon hat
And a belt that is four inches wide,
Then bulldog a steer at the fair ev’ry year,
And jump on my pony and ride.

O da lay-ee-ee-oh, ah lay oh lay-ee dee-oh, lee-oh lay-ee, ay-ee, ay-dee oh.
Lee-oh lay-ee dee-oh, oh-lee-oh lay-ee dee-oh.
Lee-oh lay-ee oh, d’-lay-ee oh, d’lay-ee -oh, d’-lay-ay-ee.
