It was early in April-o, I hitched my site in order-o! To ride the hills of Internet-o!
Ah, folk songs…

F#m

       F#m      B
It was early in October-o
  F#m                B     C#
I hitched my team in order-o
            F#m
To ride the hills of Saludio
      B                     F#m
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo

      F#m
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
      B
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
           F#m
To my ride-yey, to my rideo
      B                     F#m     B   F#m
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo

I pop my whip and I bring the blood
I make my leaders take the mud
We grab the wheels and we turn them around
One long pull and we're on hard ground

To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To my ride-yey, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo

When I got there the hills were steep
'T would make any tender person weep
To hear me cuss and pop my whip
And see my oxen pull and slip

To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To my ride-yey, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo

When I get home I'll have revenge
I'll have my family, I'll have my friends
I'll say goodbye to the whip and line
And drive no more in the wintertime

To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
To my ride-yey, to my rideo
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo

It was early in October-o
I hitched my team in order-o
To ride the hills of Saludio
To me rol, to me rol, to my rideo
