Sioux City Sue   Bing Crosby (#3 in 1946), Tony Pastor (#10 in 1946), Cowboy

I drove a herd of cattle down
From old Nebraska way.
That's how I come to be in
The state of I-o-way.
I met a girl in I-o-way;
Her eyes were big and blue.
I asked her what her name was;
She said "Sioux City Sue."

    Sioux City Sue,
    Sioux City Sue,
    Your hair is red, your eyes are blue,
 (variation: "Your eyes are red, your hair is blue")
    I'd swap my horse and dog for you,
    Sioux City Sue,
    Sioux City Sue,
    There ain't no gal as true
    As my sweet Sioux City Sue.

I asked her if she had a beau;
She said "Yes, quite a few,"
But still I started courin'
My sweet Sioux City Sue.
The first time that I stole a kiss
I caught her stealing two.
I aksed her did she love me;
She said "Indeed I do."

Now I'm admitting, I-o-wa,
I owe a lot to you,
'Cause I come from Nebraska
To find Sioux City Sue,
I'm gonna rope and tie her up;
I'll use my old lasso.
I'm gonna put my brand on
My sweet Sioux City Sue.
