Hi Guys,

I am learning this song 'Boots & Saddle' by Riley Puckett but I am missing a few words in one of the verses

Open steers on old ??????
With my buddies Slim and ??????
Give me my boots & saddle

Great song
I couldn't find a thread discussing it. Is there one I overlooked?
Riley is my man!

I appreciate all the help around here,
Thanks,
Banjo Bonnie

Try here. It's from the big-band recording by Tommy Dorsey but seems to be the same lyrics.

You can hear Gene Autry sing this at The Record Lady's All-Time Country Favorites, Requests Page 10.

(TAKE ME BACK TO MY) BOOTS AND SADDLE
Walter G Samuels, Leonard Whitcup, Teddy Powell, 1935.

Take me back to my boots and saddle.
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh!
Let me see that gen'ral store.
Let me ride the range once more.
Give me my boots and saddle.

Let me ramble along the prairie.
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh!
Ropin' steers on old "Bar X"
With my buddies, Slim and Tex,
Give me my boots and saddle.

BRIDGE: Got a hankerin' to be
With a banjo on my knee
Strummin' a pretty western tune.
There's a gal in Cherokee
And she's waitin' there for me,
Waitin' beneath the Texas moon.

Take me back to my boots and saddle.
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh!
Let me greet each blazin' morn
On the ranch where I was born.
Give me my boots and saddle.

REPEAT BRIDGE AND LAST VERSE.

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh!

[Recorded by Gene Autry, Bing Crosby, Tommy Dorsey, Willie Nelson, Riley Puckett, Riders in the Sky, Tex Ritter, Carson Robison, Art Tatum, Jimmy Wakely and several others. Screamin' Jay Hawkins gives it an early-rock-n-roll spin. (Would I lie to you?) I don't know who was first.]

Hi B.!
Are you thinking of the one that Haines and Leighton do?
