Hickey Hickey Hay

With me arse upon the saddle and me hand upon the horn
I’ll ride any horse that ever was born
With a high-li, hickey hickey hay.
With a high-li, hickey hickey hay.

With me hand on the saddle and a heifer by the tail
With me high-li hickey hickey hay
With a high-li, hickey hickey hay.

I was going like hell around the old stock trail
With me high-li, hickey hickey hay.
And the boss came out, he gave a shout
Hey! Cow puncher, he isn’t worth a damn
With a high-li, hickey hickey hay.

And lean on my saddle and I pack my nag
With a high-li, hickey hickey hay.
And I say goodbye with a high-li hickey hickey hay.
