Singing "It's Home Sweet Home To Me"

Singing "Home on the Range" with the Sons of the Pioneers.  Gene Autry sings a second version of it later in the video.

These are Roy Roger's songs I found at first glance.  You can post your favorite songs here too.  I'll add as I come across them...
"Keep your 'sites' on The Rifleman"
"The Rifleman hits the 'Mark' every week on abc."

Just a tidbit I'm sure most of you know.....

Every cowboy had a theme song. A song heard as the dust settled and heros drifted west towards the sinking sun. Some were better than others, but few were as good as "Happy Trails."

"Happy Trails" was written by Dale Evans in 1950, while preparing for a radio show. Dale decided Roy needed a theme song and since he penned all his autographs with "Trails of Happiness" or "Happy Trails, Roy Rogers", the title came easily.

Scribbling on an envelope, Dale wrote the famous lyrics and taught the medley to Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers forty minutes before show time.

What came across the radio that night gave America's favorite singing cowboy a theme song and a nation a lifetime of inspiration.

Several people have said that they didn't care for them, but me, they hold a special place in my heart.  Then & Gene Autry were my first westerns.  They started it all for me.  I even had to have a cap gun.  

Thanks for the memories!

I have posted some pictures for you guys in the Western Xposure Room.

Enjoy!

Can any of you cowgirls or cowboys get your horse to do what Trigger does at the end?
