Lyrics (English lyric by Bartley Costello):
I LOVE TO ROAM
OUT YONDER,
OUT WHERE THE BUFFALO
WANDER,
FREE AS THE EAGLE
FLYING,
I'M ROPING
AND A-TYING,
I'M ROPING
AND A-TYING.

GIVE ME MY RANCH
AND MY CATTLE,
FAR FROM
THE GREAT CITY'S
RATTLE;
GIVE ME A BIG HERD
TO BATTLE,
FOR I JUST LOVE
HERDING CATTLE.

GIVE ME MY BRIDLE
AND SADDLE,
AND MY OLD PINTO
I'LL STRADDLE;
I'LL GET THE COWBOYS
A-RIDING,
OUT WHERE TE RUSTLERS
ARE HIDING.

SOMETIMES
THE WINTER STORMS
TEARING,
SET ALL THE CATTLE
A-RARING,
BUT WHEN
THE WINTER IS OVER,
WE'RE SURE ENOUGH
IN CLOVER.

GIVE ME
THE WIDE OPEN SPACES,
THAT'S JUST WHERE
I KNOW MY PLACE IS,
I LOVE THE RODEO
DEARLY,
AND THE BIG ROUND-UP
YEARLY.

THOUGH WE PLAY
SEVEN ELEVEN
MY RANCH
IS NEXT DOOR
TO HEAVEN
WE SMILE
WHEN WE TAKE
A BEATING,
BUT HANG A RAT
WHEN HE IS CHEATING.

(Spanish lyric):
ALLA EN RANCHO GRANDE,
ALL DONDE NIVIA,
HABIA UNA RANCHE RITA,
QUE ALEGRE ME DECIA,
QUE ALEGRE ME DECIA.

TE VOY HACER
TUS CAL ZONES,
COMO LOS USA
EL RANCHERO;
TE LOS COMIENZO
DE LANA,
TE LOS ACABO
DE CUERO.

NUNCA TE FIES
DE PROMESAS,
NI MUCHO MENOS
DE AMORES,
QUE SI TE
DAN CALABZAS,
VERA'S LO QUE
SON ADORES.

PONN MUY ATENTO
EL OIDO,
CUANDO RECHINE
LA PUERTA,
HAY MUERTOS
QUE NO
HACEN RUIDO,
Y SON MUY GORDAS
SUS PENAS.

CUANDO TE PIDAN
CIGARRO,
NO DES CIGARRO
Y CERILLO,
PORQUE SI DAS
LAS DOS COSAS,
TE TANTEARAN
DE ZORRILLO.
