The refrain at the end of Big Joe's Honey Hush echoes Hi Yo Silver's, a song first recorded by Harold Burrage with the Horace Henderson orchestra for Decca in 1950 and covered by Roy Brown ('50), The Treniers ('52) and Bennie Green ('55). "Hi yo Silver away" was the Lone Ranger's standard yell to his horse.
