Subject: 'My Little Dusty' by Roy Rogers

Does anyone remember the words to an old Roy Rogers song, "My Little Dusty?" Maybe from the mid to late 50's?

This is going to be a tough one, Sharon. While the song may have a great memory for you, it apparently was not one of his most successful; I checked the Rhino Records Roy Rogers 3 disc compilation (90 songs) and it isn't there.

I have never heard that song, but I guess it was written about Roy, Jr. I suggest you contact the Roy Rogers Museum in Victorville, CA (click here). Good Luck. -- John

If you're interested in the how singing cowboys came to be, you might want to listen to this broadcast from Fresh Air last week when they talked about Gene Autry and the chronology of the radio shows and movies. Roy Rogers was a direct recipient of the work done by Autry.

Now back to the search for song lyrics.

I don't know the song but I had the pleasure of meeting Dusty in Branson Missouri at the Roy Rogers theater and museum. Dusty is the nickname of Roy Rogers Jr. I spent about 10 minutes talking with him and it was fascinating!

"All day you've played hard, In your own backyard, You are my sweet little Dusty."   

These are some of the first words. I can't recall the rest just now but might think of some of the rest later.

Just discovered by coincidence an interesting article in our local Parish Magazine (Hampshire UK) It seems that Roy Rogers and his wife (Gail Evans)) spent some time in our village as guests of a local dignitary, Sir Harold Gillies and opened the 9 Hole pitch & put golf course (No longer exists). One of the current older residents of the village had a ride on Trigger who accompanied Roy.
Ah the good old days

From: Jim Dixon

Transcribed from the recording at YouTube:


DUSTY
As sung by Roy Rogers, 1949.

The moon shinin' high up in the sky
Is smilin' on my little Dusty.
Your story's been read; the stars overhead
All say, "Go to bed, little Dusty."
All day you've played hard in your own backyard.
You're my little pard, little Dusty.
I pray when you sleep, angels will keep
An eye on you, my little Dusty.

REPEAT

Goodnight, son!
