Saddled and gone, before the dawn,
It’s just the cowboy’s way.
‘cause cows and horses don’t travel far,
In the hot part of the day.
Mother cows will hide their babies,
When they scatter out to graze,
So it’s best to catch them on the bed ground,
In the early morning haze.
These are simple facts of cowboy’s life,
Although some think me insane.
As I trot out before break of day,
In the dark, in the drizzling rain.
