Private Buckaroo song lyrics


Song lyrics to Private Buckaroo, the title song from the film “Private Buckaroo” (1942) (Music: Allie Wrubel / Lyrics: Charles Newman)

Private Buckaroo
Way out on a range that he’s a stranger to
Dreams he hears the cattle lowin’
But it’s just a bugle blowin’
True blue Private Buckaroo.

There in Company Q
Away from corrals and all the pals he knew
Won’t be havin’ any hand in
This year’s ropin’, this year’s brandin’
True blue Private Buckaroo.

Each night beneath the evening star
He strums on his old guitar
Till it’s get along, Buckaroo, you’re in the Army

Private Buckaroo
That yippee-aye lad,
he may sound sad and so blue

But there’s nothin’ he’s afraid of
Got the stuff a cowhand’s made of
True blue Private Buckaroo.

So goodnight, your dreams will come true
They always do,
Private Buckaroo.
