Way out in (mm hm) California (mm hm)
Where Stewball (mm hm) was born, (was born)
All the jockeys (mm hm) said ol’ Stewball (mm hm)
Lord, he blew there (mm hm) in a storm (in a storm).
CHORUS: Bet on Stewball and he might win, win, win
Bet on Stewball and he might win
Bet on Stewball and he might win, win, win
Bet on Stewball and he might win.
All the jockeys (mm hm) in the country (mm hm)
Say he blew there (mm hm) in a storm (In a storm)
All the women (mm hm) in the country (mm hm)
Say ol’ Stewball (mm hm) never was known (never was known).
When the horses (mm hm ) were saddled (mm hm)
And the word was (mm hm) given “go” (given “go”)
Ol’ Stewball (mm hm) he shot out (mm hm)
Like an arrow (mm hm) from a bow (from a bow).
The old folks (mm hm) they holler (mm hm)
The young folks (mm hm) they’d bawl (they’d bawl)
The children (mm hm) say look, look (mm hm)
At that noble (mm hm) Stewball (Stewball).
Additional verses from other recordings
It was a big day in Dallas
Doncha wish you was there?
You would-a bet your last dollar
On that iron gray mare.
When that big bell was a-ringin’
And the horses would run
And that big bell was a-singin’
And the horses did run.
The kettledrum was a-bangin’
And the word was given “Run”
Ol’ Stewball was tremblin’ like a criminal
To be hung.
Ol’ Stewball was a race horse
Ol’ Molly was too.
Ol’ Stewball done know Molly
Right out of her shoes.VIEW COMPLETE FEWER LYRICS
