Who Let The Cows Out? was respectfully dedicated to Josef Fuchs and was clearly intended to be a fun item which Trebor Jay Tichenor in his That American Rag: The Story of Ragtime from Coast to Coast suggests that it may have been played in vaudeville. It is scored Tempo di Rag-etta Slow-vere and the performers are called upon to "make a noise like a cow" during a break. A great ensemble piece with many nice touches such as interjections of patriotic and folk themes as well as a nice bass solo. Its form is AABBACCC with a 4-bar introduction a with interludes of 4- and 22-bars between the AC- and final C-strains respectively. The latter interlude is especially amusing.
Who Let The Cows Out? was published by Howard & Browne Music Co., St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
