    Default "ghost riders in the sky"

    We noticed that a few have commented on the the music on the first page, which turns out to be "Ghost Riders IN THE SKY" sung by one of our favorite western singer from the 1950s FRANKIE LAINE, and was one of his many #1 hits. We love that old time western music But you have to hear the words to get the full appreation for these old time western hits.

    FRANKIE LANE, and the WANDERLUST ALBUM is where "RIDERS IN THE SKY" can be found, along with another favorite of ours WAGAN WHEELS.

    But our favorite western albam is
    **** BENT FOR LEATHER ! And these are the songs on this album.

    RAWHIDE ******
    HIGH NOON (OUR FAVORITE) **************
    WANTED MAN
    COOL WATER******
    ALONG THE NAVAJO TRAIL******
    BOWIE KNIFE
    GUNFIGHT AT O. K. CARRAL******
    CITY BOY
    THE CRY OF THE WILD GOOSE
    THE 3:10 TO YUMA *****
    THE HANGING TREE*****
    MULE TRAIN*****

    Check out where you can locate one of these 33 rpm albams or maybe they might be on C D but we doubt it.

    Your fellow ghosttowners

    Hi Johnnie & Sheila! So good to see you posting!
    I too love Frankie Laine, "Jezebel" happens to be one of my favorites, so much so, I named my first dog (a tiny poodle) Jezebel.

    Also, CD Universe sells "H E L L Bent For Leather" on CD. Frankie Laine Rockin'/H E L L Bent For Leather CD

    Ahhh Johnnie & Sheila, you're so right, can't beat those oldies. I hate to admit it, 'cause I'm probably admitting my age, but I don't think I've understood the words to the "new" music since the 1970's...AND the few words I did understand made me blush!

    Hang down yer head Tom Dooley.....

    Default Ridin' Down the Canyon

    My favorite is Ridin' Down the Canyon
    written by Gene Autry and Smiley Burnett.

    Now my pony is my ole Husqvarna or my Ford Bronco but
    I do so love to enjoy a summer sunset in desert!

    You may recall the words:

    First Verse:

    When evening chores are over at the ranch house on the plains
    And there's nothing left to do but lay around
    I saddle up my pony and go riding down the trail
    Just to watch the desert sun go down

    CHORUS:

    White faced cattle lowing, sagebrush everywhere
    Granite spires are standing all around
    I'll tell you folks it's heaven to go ridin' down the trail
    Just to watch the desert sun go down

    Ridin' down the canyon to watch the sun go down
    A picture that no artist 'ere could paint
    Cactus plants are bloomin' on the mountain side
    I hear a coyote calling to its mate

    ---------------------

    I'm was Marty Robbins fan - songs like Mr Shorty and
    Big Iron (bout the Arizona Ranger getting Texas Red).
    Wore out a 78 record of Little Joe the Wrangeler when
    I was a kid and fell asleep many a night listing to the
    Sons of the Pioneers. Like this subject.

    Frankie Laine, Gene, Roy, Dale & Trigger, Rex Allen, Red Foley...all great, the list is endless.

    Smiley Burnett was a very talented guy, multi instrumentalist, fine voice, origonal song writer, sidekick. He was the right foil for Gene.

    My fave, Marty Robbins, "Gunfighter ballads & trail songs" Big Iron, El Paso, Cool water, Utah Carol, Strawberry roan, Masters call, some of the best guitar ever. I had looked for it for over a year, (before I had internet) & finally found it by chance in an antique store in Tombstone, seemed right.

    This style of western music has been lost today but Willie Nelson's "Red headed stranger" is pretty good.
