(All Riders): (Mock Coyote howl)

(Gunshot sound effect)

(All Riders): (Mock cattle noises)

(Texas Bix Bender): Riders Radio Theater is on the air!

(All Riders): Yo-de-lay-de-yo

It's the Riders on the radio

Come on partner saddle up and go

Get ready for the cowboy show

Yo-de-lay-de-yo-de-lay-ei-ay

We've been workin' since the break of day

We've been doin' it the Cowboy Way

And now it's time to play

We're gonna ride, and rope, and wrangle a tune

We're gonna hoot, and holler, and howl at the moon

(Repeat of mock Coyote howls)

(Texas Bix Bender): Yes, buckaroos and buckarettes, it's time to ride the airwaves once again with America's favorite cowboys: Riders in the Sky. Too Slim, the man with a dozen friends, Woody Paul, the king of the cowboy fiddlers, and Ranger Doug, the idol of American youth. This is Texas Bix Bender inviting you to saddle up and join Riders in the Sky for a thrilling program of high-yodeling adventure!

(All Riders): We're gonna ride, and rope, and wrangle a tune

We're gonna hoot, and holler, and howl at the moon

(Repeat of mock Coyote howls)

Yo-de-lay-ei-ooh

Every buckarette and buckaroo

There's a place around the fire for you

With Riders in the Sky

So come on and let's ride!
