Ragtime Cowboy Joe-lyr Traditional
RAGTIME COWBOY JOE-(1912) (Grant Clarke, Lewis Muir and Maurice Abrahams) Out in Ar-iz-o-na where the bad men are And the on-ly friend to guide you is an Eve-'ning star The rough-est, tough-est man by far is Rag-time Cow Boy Joe Joe got his name from sing-ing to the cows and sheep Ev'ry night they say he sings the herd to sleep In a bass-o rich and deep croon-in' soft and low. CHORUS He al-ways sings rag-gy mu-sic to the cat-tle As he swings back and for-ward in the sad-dle On a horse that is syn-co-pat-ed, gait-ed, And there's such a fun-ny me-ter to the roar of his re-peat-er How they run when hear that fel-low's gun Because the West-ern folks all know He's a high-fa-lut-ing, scoot-ing, shoot-ing Son-of-a-gun from ar-iz-o-na Rag-time Cow Boy Joe. He dressed up ev'ry Sun-day in his Sun-day clothes He beats it for the vil-lage where he al-ways goes And ev'ry girl in town is Joe's 'cause he's a rag-time bear. When he starts a-spieling on the dance hall floor No one but a lun-a-tic would start a war Wise men know his fo-rty four makes men dance for fair. CHORUS
