An American Tail Fievel Goes West - Rolling song

Rawhide is a song sung by the animals who see Fievel on the tumbleweed ride in An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, while he travels to Green River from the Mousehican settlement. The song comes from the theme of Rawhide, a western TV show that ran from 1959-1965 and starred Clint Eastwood.

Perhaps due to copyrights, it does not appear on the official soundtrack.
