1.
Get your hat and spurs together
  Grab your boots of Spanish leather
  Get ready boys to saddle up
  This could be Our Last Roundup
 
2. Forward mail from old Dodge City
  Say farewell to Matt and Kitty
  Tell Festus not to drink to much
  Ask the Doc to stay in touch
  This could be Our Last Roundup
 
chorus
Fast moving trains, high flying planes have stolen the scene
  There's no place for an old cowhand except the movie screen
   
3.
Tell Little Joe and Hoss and Ben
  I'll never ride the range with them
  Tell Rowdy Yates I hit the trail
Ask Brett and Bart to send email
   
4.
To Palladin outside the law
  My hero with a fatal flaw
  It's time to ride with Hopalong
  Ask Roy to sing a saddle song
  This could be Our Last Roundup
 
chorus
Fast moving trains, high flying planes have stolen the scene
  There's no place for an old cowhand except late night TV
  Or on A.M.C.
 
5.
Get your hat and spurs together
  Grab your boots of Spanish leather
  Get ready boys to saddle up
  This could be Our Last Roundup

"In 1995, I sang song ideas into a recorder. In 2009, I found the tape (after 3 moves) and listened. The first verse and chorus of this song were there—I'd totally forgotten them. I decided to finish the song. I think the original inspiration was from seeing contrails in the sky of a Western." — San

 

Our Last Roundup was performed at Ernie Martinez' CD release concert, Swallow Hill, Denver, July 16, 2011.

[Our] Last Roundup was mentioned in Rick Huff's review of Ernie Martinez's CD, "Blue Range."
