Who sang a song of Indian hi-de-ho to the people passing by
The pinto spent his time a-swishin' flies and the Navajo watched the lazy skies
And very rarely did they ever rest their eyes on the people passing by

Chorus:

One day they went out a-walkin' along the railroad track
They was swishin' not lookin'.... they never came back
Across the alley from the Alamo when the summer sun decides to settle
low
A fly sings an Indian hi-de-ho to the people passing by

Instrumental Break

Repeat chorus
