Do you know all the words to the Rawhide theme song?

Try to keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ through this quiz!

The Rawhide theme song is one of the catchiest Western tunes heard on classic TV. It has been referenced and parodied countless times since the show aired, including a memorable scene in The Blues Brothers.

The person most associated with the song is Frankie Laine, who recorded the version used on the show. The commercially released single version actually has the end credits verse first and then the verse used for the opening title sequence, but for this quiz we'll go in the order it appears in the series, with the title sequence lyrics first.

Do you know every word to this classic Western ditty? See if you can wrangle these Rawhide rhymes!

Love, love, love this theme song. I sing along every time. MeTV has shows with great theme songs: Perry Mason, In the Heat of the Night, Mission Impossible, Peter Gunn, etc. Love jazzy horns!

17 out of 18. What a catchy tune. I sung it in my head, which helped me guess right. Some of my favorite tunes are from TV themes. The Munsters and Hawaii Five-O come to mind. Also Mission, Impossible. Great music!

I was 16/18. It's a good thing I bought those "TV Themes" on CD some years ago. I have all 6 volumes and "Rawhide" is on there. I remember being in the first grade we used to try and sing the theme to "Rawhide".

I think you should sue Me TV, The Academy, me just because, and Kool Aid.

So, do I get to be Jake or Elwood?
Would the Rawhide theme be considered a "country" or a "western" song?

17/18. I'd thought I'd have aced this quiz, as "Rawhide' was one of my favorite songs as a child. I even had the Frankie Laine 45 on Columbia Records and used to love to sing it... so much so, that my late father tried to get me to perform it at a vacation spot's 'talent show' - to which I ran into the bathroom to escape the pressure...

After all of these years I was bound to miss a line ("Cut 'em out, move 'em in"), as what a child hears and remembers can often differ from what was actually on the record...

I have been after METV to make theme song quizzes since forever. Did you know that there are words to iconic themes like Mission, Impossible and The Munsters? Inquiring minds want to know!!

The last time I checked, there were 4 books, including one of misheard Christmas carols--that one's called Deck The Halls With Buddy Holly (and no, I'm not making that up).

I don't think there are lyrics for MI, but there are for Munsters, Beaver, and even Star Trek!
