Velvet Underground, The - Lonesome Cowboy Bill Lyrics




Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Ever since he was a little lad,
Loves the rodeo.
Bucking broncs, yeah, sipping wine,
You got to see him go,
And all the ten-gallon girls
Love to hear him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Because

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Oh, Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You still ride the rodeo.
Up 'round the Colorado shore,
Down by the Ohio.
Sometimes even New Orleans,
Down by the Mardi Gras,
And all the ten-gallon girls
Love to hear him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

He's Lonesome Cowboy Bill, He rides the rodeo.
Just a Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

You got to see him in the rodeo
When he's ridin', goin' too darn fast.
You got to hear the people scream and shout

They call him,
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He's a
Lonesome Cowboy Bill

He goes...

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

I said,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"
Oh he's a Lonesome Cowboy Bill, Lonesome Cowboy Bill...

  1. John & Lynn Alan

    I thought I was the only one who loved this song ?

  2. Clint Eastwood

    I know some of you may find it weird, but this in my top 5 favorite VU songs. It never fails to make me smile.

  3. greg greg

    lou reed was a mad man

  4. Iuy Yui

    I wonder if Zappa's Lonsesome Cowboy Burt was based on this lol

  5. David Chavers

    Bass player Doug Yule sings this one, though l always assumed it was Lou Reed.

  6. Jim Rader

    god I hate this production now. I loved it when I came out; most songs are third-drawer. dougie singing half the songs? most composed by lou? fucked-upsville.

  7. MikeDindu

    When a rock n roll band randomly makes one of the best country songs ever

    Classic Pinball

    TVU was always trying different things, even on their pop-oriented album it seems

  8. Zach Bruneau

    This album is so fucking TOUGH. They say that this album spawned a thousand garage bands. Every 10th guy to here the album started a band.

  9. Kris Fotheringham

    2015 remaster sucks the boaby btw

  10. StraightTongue

    I like how VU refers to loneliness in their ways through their songs. This song has a positivity to it that really cool

  11. StraightTongue

    This is a legendary tune. So many times on an airplane looking down smiling as we took off.... Rock and roll
