Move On, You Lazy Cattle

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Weíve a long way to go, tell me why are you so slow.

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

And youíre not cominí back. Itís a shame, but itís a fact.

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

 

This is the last trail youíll travel over,

Fill up on sage and clover,

Move on, you prairie rover, move on.

And when youíre all steak and stew together,

Iíll still be poundiní leather.

Move on, you cattle, move along.

 

ĎTwas a year ago today that I branded you this way,

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

Now youíre big, fat and round, youíll bring ten cents a pound.

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

 

This is the last trail youíll travel over,

Fill up on sage and clover,

Move on, you prairie rover, move on.

And when youíre all steak and stew together,

Iíll still be poundiní leather.

Move on, you cattle, move along.

 

There is no need to cry, there's a range up in the sky,.

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

Where we'll all meet again so good-bye until then.

Move along, lazy cattle, move along.

 

This is the last trail youíll travel over,

Fill up on sage and clover,

Move on, you prairie rover, move on.

And when youíre all steak and stew together,

Iíll still be poundiní leather.

Move on, you cattle, move along.

 

Move along, move along, move along.
