Song of Cow Pattie

Cow Pattie By Jim Stafford


From the Bad Lands came The Killer, he lived by the knife and the gun.
He'd cut you just for standing, shoot you if you tried to run.
He was big as a tree, and he did as he pleased,
And eveything he did was bad.
They said if you was to kill him, you'd only make him mad.
From the good lands came the Cow Girl, Pattie was her name.
She was hot on the trail of that Killer on a moped she called "Flame."
Cause the killer had killed her daddy just for spittin' in the road.
And you only had to killer her daddy once to get that gal Pee O'd.

Chorus: Yipee I a, Yippe I a, Cow Pattie.
She roared into town to find the man that killed her daddy, Yippeee I a, (spoken) Cow Pattie.

Killer hit town at daybreak, ate the door off the local saloon.
He started to drink, you could tell he was thinkin' there'd be a show down soon.
Pattie hit town in a cloud of dust, ole Flame was buzzin' like a saw.
And the whole town got quiet as a church when the killer stepped out for the draw.
Forty shots rang out, forty people fell, Pattie and the Killer missed each other.
But they shot that town to hell.

Chorus: Yipee I a, Yippe I a, Cow Pattie.
She roared into town to find the man that killed her daddy, Yippeee I a, (spoken) Cow Pattie.

Killer took a step toward Pattie, said, "It's time I gunned you down."
But he slipped in something that was laying in the street,
And was shot before he hit the ground.
Yes, the Killer slipped and it cost him his life,
And Pattie said as she roared out of town,
"You gotta watch your step when you know the chips are down."

The Moral:

You gotta be careful when you walk in the Street-O,
In a town where the National Food's the Burrito!

How many bloggers have their very own anthem? Very cool.

Boy, this brings back memories. When I was a kid, my neighbor would listen to the country music radio station while he drove his son and me to and from hockey games. This was frequently on the air, along with (Canadian Content Alert) The Irish Rovers' "Wasn't That A Party?"
