Frankie Laine – Rawhide lyrics

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Rawhide!
Hah! Hah!
Keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin’, rawhide
Through rain and wind and weather
Hell bent for leather
Wishin’ my gal was by my side
All the things I’m missin’
Good vittles, love, and kissin’
Are waiting at the end of my ride
Move ’em out, head ’em up
Head ’em up, move ’em on
Move ’em out, head ’em up:
Rawhide
Cut ’em out, ride ’em in
Ride ’em in, cut ’em out
Cut ’em out, ride ’em in:
Rawhide!
Hah! Hah!
Keep movin’, movin’, movin’
Though they’re disapprovin’
Keep them dogies movin’, rawhide
Don’t try to understand ’em
Just rope an’ throw an’ brand ’em
Soon we’ll be living high and wide
My heart’s calculatin’
My true love will be waitin’:
Be waitin’ at the end of my ride
Move ’em out, head ’em up
Head ’em up, move ’em on
Move ’em out, head ’em up:
Rawhide
Cut ’em out, ride ’em in
Ride ’em in, cut ’em out
Cut ’em out, ride ’em in:
Rawhide!
(Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’.)
(Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’.)
Hah!
(Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’.)
Hah!
(Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’.)
Rawhide
Hah!
Rawhide!
