Ten Thousand Cattle

Ten thousand cattle, gone astray; 
Left the range and traveled away. 
And the sons of guns, I'm here to say, 
Have left me dead broke, dead broke today, 

In gambling hells delaying; 
Ten thousand cattle straying, 
Ten thousand cattle straying 

And now my gal has gone away; 
Left my home and traveled away. 
With a son of a gun from I-o-way 
Left me a lone man, lone man today
