Coma - tiyiyippy, yippy yea,yippy yea
Coma - ti yi yippy, yippyyea

Oh come along boys and listen to my tale
I'll tell you of my troubles on the old Chisholm trail

I woke one morning the old Chisholm trail
With my rope in my hand and a cow by the tail

I started up the trail October twenty-third
Started up the trail with the two U herd

I'm up in the morning before daylight
Before I sleep will moon shine bright

My feet in the stirrups my seat in the saddle
I hung in the rattle of the longhorn cattle

No chaps no slicker and it's pouring down rain
I swear I'll never see night herd again

We rounded 'em up and put 'em in the car
And that was the last of the old Two Bars..
