El Rancho Grande (English lyrics Bartley Costello, Spanish lyrics by J. del Moral, Music by Emilio Uranga) CHO: I love to roam out yonder Out where the buffalo wander Free as the eagle flying I'm roping and a-tying I'm roping and a-tying. Give me my ranch and my cattle Far from the great city's rattle Give me a big herd to battle For I just love herding cattle. CHO: Alla en la rancho grande Alla donde vivia Habia una ranche rita Que alegre me decia Que alegra me decia. Te voy hacer tus calzones Como los usa el ranchero Te los comienzo de lana Te los acabo de cuero. Sometimes the winter storms tearing, Set all the cattle a-raring. But when the winter is over, We're sure enough in the clover. Give me the wide-open spaces, That's just where I know my place is. I love the rodeo dearly, And the big round-up yearly. Though we play seven eleven, My ranch is next door to Heaven We smile when we take a beatin', But hang a rat when he's cheatin'. Recorded by Jim Mallory and his Range Riders
