Rollin', rollin', rollin' Rollin', rollin', rollin' Rollin', rollin', rollin' Rollin', rollin', rollin' Rawhide! Rollin', rollin', rollin' Though the streams are swollen Keep them dogies rollin' Rawhide! Rain and wind and weather Hell-bent for leather Wishin' my gal was by my side. All the things I'm missin', Good vittles, love, and kissin', Are waiting at the end of my ride
CHORUS Move 'em on, head 'em up Head 'em up, move 'em on Move 'em on, head 'em up Rawhide Count 'em out, ride 'em in, Ride 'em in, count 'em out, Count 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide!
Keep movin', movin', movin' Though they're disapprovin' Keep them dogies movin' Rawhide! Don't try to understand 'em Just rope, throw, and brand 'em Soon we'll be living high and wide. My hearts calculatin' My true love will be waitin', Be waitin' at the end of my ride.
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"

It has now been revealed that The Doors recorded a version of Rawhide during their LAW sessions in 1970/71.
This fits in nicely with the Ghost Riders In The Sky jam the band did that inspired ROTS. We can add TV to the many influences The Doors had.
Hopefully we will get to hear this sooner rather than later
One of the great 60s TV series with it's iconic theme sung by Frankie Laine. The theme song's lyrics were written by Ned Washington in 1958 the year before the series premiered.
Most of the kids I knew were big fans of Rowdy Yates. Little did we know he would one day become the legendary Clint Eastwood. His character was one of the first great anti hero roles of TV and I am sure a 16 year old Jim Morrison would have noticed him.
