Ballad Of Roddy Pippin
This is a true story, so I've been told.
It was written up in the newspaper not too long ago.
It's all about Roddy Pippin, a cowboy want-to-be.
Well, he was a boy all right, but he had no cattle you see.
'All hat and no cattle, ' you've heard it said.
Well, for Roddy Pippin, that was the life he led.
He was young, not yet twenty years old.
But, Roddy was determined to be a cowboy-tough and bold!
He wasn't just talk. No, sir! He could ride'em and rope 'em!
