Words & Music:

Ned Washington & Dimitri Tiomkine



Rollin', rollin', rollin', though the streams are swollen,


Keep them dogies rollin', Rawhide!

Em                         D             Em

Rain and wind and weather, hell-bent for leather.

D          C             B7

Wishin' my gal was by my side.

Em                          D                      Em

All the things I'm missin', good vittles, love and kissin'

    D              Em        D    Em

Are waiting at the end of my ride



Em                         B7

Move 'em on, head 'em up!  Head 'em up, move 'em on!

Em                           B7

Move 'em on, head 'em up, Rawhide!

Em                           B7

Count 'em out, ride 'em in!  Ride 'em in, count 'em out!

Em             C        B7     E

Count 'em out, ride 'em in, Rawhide!


Keep movin', movin', movin', though they're disapprovin'

Keep them dogies movin', Rawhide!

Don't try to understand 'em, just rope 'em, throw and brand 'em.

Soon we'll be living high and wide.

My heart's calculatin'my true love will be waitin',

Be waitin' at the end of my ride.
