YMCA CAMP LOOWIT CAMPFIRE SONGS

Campfire Song Index

DESPERADO

Oh, there was a desperado
from the wild and woolly west
And he went into Chicago
just to give the west a rest
And he caused great commotion
by the way that he was dressed
And everywhere he went
he gave his war whoop.
CHORUS:
Oh, the big bold man was a desperado
From Triple Creek
Way down in Colorado
And he walked around like a big tornado
And everywhere he went
He gave his war whoop.
Oh, he went to Coney Island
just take in all the sights
And he saw the who-chi-coo-chis
And the girls all dressed in tights
And he went into the movies
And he SHOT OUT ALL THE LIGHTS!
And everywhere he went
he gave his war whoop. CHORUS
Oh, there was a big policeman
come a walking down the street
And he say the big tornado
come a-rolling down the street
And he grabbed him by the whiskers
And he grabbed him by the seat
And put him where
he couldn’t give his war whoop. CHORUS.
