Sweet betsy from pike

Sweet Betsy from pike
Do you remember sweet Besty from Pike.
Who crossed the wide prairies wht her husband lke.
With two yoke of oxen and one spotted hog.
A tall shanghai rooster, and old yeller dog?
Sing too ra li oo ra li oo ra li ay.
Sing too ra li oo ra li oo ra li ay.
The alkali desert was burning and bare.
And lke cried in fear, we are lost, I declare!
My dear old Pike country, I'll go back to you.
Said Betsy, You'll go by yourself if you do.
They swam the wide rivers and crossed the tall peaks.
They camped on the prairie for weeks upon weeks.
They fought with the Indians with musket and ball.
They reached California in spite of it all.
