Night Herding Song

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears…

Oh say, little dogies, why don't you lay down?
You've wandered and trampled all over the ground.
Lay down, little dogies, lay down.

I have cross-herded, trail-herded, circle-herded too
But to keep you together - that's what I can't do.
My horse is leg-weary, and I'm awful tired
But, if I let you get away, I'm sure to get fired.
Bunch up, little dogies, bunch up.
