A great song that was the theme to the TV show of the same name, back in the 1960's.
No other song quite depicts the cattle trail drives like this one.
Check out the Chisolm Trail Museum in Wellington
to learn more of Texas to Kansas cattle drives.
Rollin, rollin, rollin rollin rollin rollin Rawhide.
Rollin rollin rollin though the streams are
Keep them doggies rollin Rawhide,
Through rain and wind n weather, hell bent for leather
gal was by my side.
All the things I'm missin, good vittles, love and kissin
Are waitin at the end of my ride.
Head em up move em on, move em on head em up head em up move em
Ride em in cut em out cut em out ride em in ride em in cut em out Rawhide.
Movin, movin, movin, though they're disapprovin,
keep them doggies movin Rawhide
try to understand em, just rope and throw and brand em
Soon, we'll be livin high and wide
My hearts calculatin,
my true love is a waitin, waitin at the end of my ride
em up, move em on, move em on head em up head em move em on Rawhide
Ride em in cut em out cut em out ride em in ride
em in cut em out Rawhide
Rawhide hide Rawhide.
