The Lyrics

rudolph the red gunned cowboy
had a very shiny gun
and if you ever saw it
most folks say you'd run
all of the other cowboys
used to laugh and call him names
they never let poor rudolph
join in any cowboy games
then one western christmas eve
santa came to say
rudolph with your gun so bright
wont you shoot my wife tonight?
then all the cowboys loved him
as they shouted out with glee
rudolph the red gunned cowboy
you'll go down in history

I always heard it different, Rudolph the red nosed cowboy had a very shiny gun. and it was poker games not cowboy games. The sheriff ask him to kill his wife not Santa.

I like your version better!

Why would Santa want his wife killed, and why are the cowboys gleeful about Rudolph getting the contract? Is this a true story? I missed it in the Enquirer. Anyway, the parody uses much too much of the original. Please try this again and provide motivation, like Mrs. Claus was boinking Blitzen.

Variations on this have made the rounds for the past several decades (cf. if I may be immodest). It is a home-grown parody, to be sure.

I always knew it as, 'Randolph, the Red-nosed Cowboy'.

I've sang this song every year at Christmas time for over 40 years here in Michigan. I sang it last night at a party and did a Google search this morning, finding this page. I learned "shiny gun cowboy" AND "poker games", otherwise, the words are identical, amazing.

Also, I sing "Then one foggy Christmas eve, the sheriff came to say ..."

We used to say "you would drop your pants and run" and "Then one foggy Saturday night; Sheriff came to say". We also said poker games.

I first heard a variation of this (Texas, the Two-Gun Cowboy") back in the 50's.
