Hey Howdy Hey – Riders in the Sky

There’s a way to say “hello”

That all the cowboys know

A phrase that even city folks can say

Well ya just say “Hey,” then “Howdy”

And then say “Hey” again

Yep, that’s the way we say “Hey Howdy Hey!”



Sing along with me, now one, two, three

Hey Howdy Hey!

Yell it nice and loud and tall and proud

Hey Howdy Hey!


Well you could say “Howdy pardner,” it that’s yer cowboy style

But when you say “Hey howdy hey!” you’ll always get a smile

So greetch yer kin with a big old grin an’

“Hey Howdy Hey!”

Jest say hello ta ev’ryone you know with

“Hey Howdy Hey!”


You c’n betch yer last plug nickel that you’ll have a sunny day

When ya simply smile and say “Hey Howdy Hey!”   (whoop)

{Instrumental Dance Break}


Ev’ry old cowpoke and his old cowfolk say

“Hey Howdy Hey!”

And ev’ry buffalo gal in the old corral say

“Hey Howdy Hey!” (“You’ve got it!”)

You c’n betch yer spurs’n saddle, that things’ll go yer way


When ya simply smile

and wave and laugh

‘n jump up ‘n down

‘n turn around

‘n Jimmy Crack Corn

‘n skip to m’ lou

‘n kiss yer mom

‘n brush yer teeth

‘n make a face

and holy smoke

‘n saaaaaaaaaaaaaaay “Hey Howdy Hey!!”
