I Ride an Old Paint 

Traditional, arranged by Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Grapevine

I ride an old paint, I lead an old dan 
I'm goin' to Montana to turn the hoolihan 
They feed in the coulees, they water in the draw 
Their tails are all matted, their backs are all raw 

Ride around little dogies, ride around them slow 
For the fiery and the snuffy are a-rarin' to go 

Old Bill Jones had two daughters and a song 
One went to Denver, the other went wrong 
His wife died in a poolroom fight 
Bill keeps on singin' from mornin' till night 

Ride around little dogies, ride around them slow 
For the fiery and the snuffy are a-rarin' to go 

I've worked in town, and I've worked out on the farm 
And all I've got to show is just the muscle in my arm 
Blisters on my feet, callous on my hand 
I'm bound for Montana, for to turn the hoolihan 

Ride around little dogies, ride around them slow 
For the fiery and the snuffy are a-rarin' to go 

When I die, take my saddle from the wall 
Put it up on my pony, lead him out of his stall 
Tie my bones to his back, turn our faces to the West 
And we'll ride the prairies that we love the best 

Ride around little dogies, ride around them slow 
For the fiery and the snuffy are a-rarin' to go
