Iona Lyr Req: Giddy Up Jericho (Smiley Burnette?) (6) RE: Lyr Req: Giddy Up Jericho (Smiley Burnette?) 25 Mar 12


There is a town in New Mexico, about fifty miles from Santa Fe, which bears the name of Abiquiu. It's pronounced "Abacue". That fits better with the song.

I can't find the song listed as one of the songs Smiley wrote, and I can't find any info about it.

So here's the song, yet again, with the new an improved location.


Giddy Up, Jericho, I lay the whip, away we go to
Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu (pronounced "Abacue")
Giddyup, Jericho, she's waiting there for me you know (still pensive on that one) my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que,
Roses in her hair
She'll say pale face glad you're here
Oh, that cutie pie
Me get sleepy in a teepee? Not me! (whooping)
Oh
Giddy Up, Jericho, I lay the whip, away we go to
Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu
Giddayup,Jericho, she's waiting there for me you know my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que Suuuuuziiiii quuuuue!
(piano)
With Roses in her hair,
She'll say "Paleface, glad you're here!"
Oh, that cutie pie!
Me get sleepy in a teepee? Not me! (whooping)
Oh Giddy Up, Jericho, I lay the whip, away we go to
Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu Abiquiu
Giddayup,Jericho, she's waiting there for me you know my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que, my Suzi-que Suuuuuziiiiiquuuuuue!
