This is how I remember it.
We used to sing it in grade school.

Joggin' down the canyon road
A-headin' for my own abode
I feel the rhythm and the beat
That only comes from horses' feet
It rocks into a crazy rhyme
My head is swingin' right in time
And as I jig and jog along
The night is filled with song

Oh, clip-a-cloppity jiggity jog
A flip-a-floppity saddle a joggin'
Along as over the trail I ride
On my journey toward the last divide

The hooves are truckin' through the mud
The tempo's singin' in my blood
The plink-a-plink of old guitars
Is hummin' to the stars

      Thanks Alica! I remember this song when I was in grade school also back in the 50's. I've been looking for the lyrics for some time and they look pretty close to what I can remember. I never forgot... more
