(Ray Freedman (aka Max) - Dick Thomas)

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue.

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, My Sioux City Sue.
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few."
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue.

The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do."

Sioux City Sue. Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue. My Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
'Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue.

I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue. Sioux City Sue

There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue...
