I'm Back In The Saddle again,
Out where a friend is a friend,
Where the long horn cattle feed, On the lowly jimson weed;
I'm Back In The Saddle Again.
Ridin' the range once more,
Totin' my old fortyfour,
Where you sleep out ev'ry night, Where the only law is right;
I'm Back In The Saddle Again.
Whoo-pi-ti-yi-yo Rockin' to and fro,
Back In The Saddle Again,
Whoo-pi-ti-yi-ya I go my way,
Back In The Saddle Again.
