Joe: Different song entirely - and Greene only recited while western music swelled in the background. The year, I think, was 1966.

Katie Lee's "Johnny Ringo" is the familiar "Bucking Bronco" song with Lee's specially composed chorus that goes something like, "Ting-a-ling-a-lingo,Johnny Ringo!," etc." Why? Who knows? But her book, mentioned by Q, is essential reading for any fan of cowboy songs.
