Cowboy, cowboy marry me
I'll bake you a cherry pie
Well thank you very kindly mam
But I'm too young to die

Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do
Stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

Cowboy if you'll marry me
I'll be your darling Jenny
Now why should I drink from just one well
When I can drink from twen'y

Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do
Stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

Cowboy, cowboy name the day
July 'd be nice I reckon
Gladly meet you at the church
July the 32nd

Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do
Stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar
You sleep all day and spoon all night
And eat your favorite chow
Then why should I get married mam
That's what I'm doing now

Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do
Stay single and save a dollar
Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl
With a cane and a high starched collar

I like the instrumentation on this record; not too often you can hear an harmonium (if I'm correct) on an Elvis record.

A happy good feel film number that everyone realised was not record material. Harmless enough and oddly enjoyable when I am in the mood to listen, it does not find its way on to my playlists.

Meh. That's about as excited as I ever get about most songs by these writers.

Compared to other early 60's recordings not great, but compared to mid sixties Recordings it maybe okay.

A song recorded for "Flaming Star" and featured in the movie, but not releaesed on record for 15+ years. This one is similar to some of the tunes in "Love Me Tender", especially "We're Gonna Move". Not a great song, but cute lyrics and Elvis make it decent. 2 1/2 stars.
