Does anyone remember those songs? I'm talkin' classics here like... Maverick, Cheyene, Wagon Train, Sugarfoot, The Lawman, Johnny Yuma(The Rebel), The Rifleman ,Bonanza Bat Masterson, Paladin, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Rawhide.... etc...etc..

let's see, from memory now....

"Who's that tall dark stranger now
Maverick is his name
blazin' a trail to who knows where
luck is his companion
gamblin' is his game
riverboat ring your bell
fare thee well Anabelle
luck is the lady that he loves the best
Natchez to New Oeleans
livin' on Delta Queens
Maverick is the legend of the west
......your turn...

Les B put together a set of theme songs from tv westerns. We were singing some of them with bill and Allan when they were out here on their Mudcat road trip. Maybe Les will see this thread. We went through the list of Johnny Yuma, Paladin, Maverick, Bonanza, Rawhide, ... anyone remember Wagon Train? Check this out...TV Westerns.

Didn't Sugarfoot start out as Tenderfoot or is my senile mind playing tricks on me ?
The only one other than Bonanza above I can remember (I'm sure I'd know them if I heard them though) is Champion the Wonder Horse (now I've typed that I can remember Mr. Ed as well) although that doesn't strictly meet the criteria, but it is bit horsey.
I'm looking forward to hearing some old forgotten favourites again.

Slight thread creep: In one John Wayne cavalry/Indians movie, I think She Wore a Yellow Ribbon? For Apache? Anyway, the soldiers sing The Bold Fenian Men to their leader. This was parodied in a Lucky Luke (the French comic strip about the Ancient West) - whose tag line was L'Homme Qui Tire Plus Vite Que Son Ombre (with the back of the books having him outshooting his shadow)...

I have a great 4-CD set from Rhino records that has tons of Western TN and movie music. I am a Bonanza nut although I never get to see it anymore because I don't have cable and there's only 1 network station here that airs it at a time when I'm rarely around. My favorite western movie music, though, is Magnificent Seven.

Wow, you folks are GOOD!

OK, can you give me a bit of "Wyatt Earp"? Was part of it "brave courageous and bold"?

Funny thing but none of the songs had the word "pimp" in them, but quite a few of the Western heroes had that as a sideline.

I'm sorry. Shouldn't have brought that up.

The only Western I really ever watched was one that was on in the late 80's (I was only a little kid then) and it was about 4 cowboys who get struck by lightening and get transported through time to Modern-day Los Angeles. It was pretty cool...but they cancelled it.

Yeah Mary...I remember Texas John....Which makes me think of a funny spoof western I only saw ONCE and its been driving me nuts ever since. The thing was so funny I was LITERALLY on the floor at times. IT was called "Evil Roy Slade" and starred John Astin (who breaks me up when he just stands there) and to my knowledge it never aired again. It was like a 2 hour made for TV movie. Its a twist on the Jungle Book stories....he was raised by buzzards and there is a scene with Astin in a cowboy hat, boots, and a diaper talking to the buzzards that's worht the whole thing.

I don't remember "Sky King" having a song associated with it, just that opening......."Out of the blue of the western sky comes......sswwwooooooshhhhvvaarrrrooooommm.....SKY KING!!!"

And of course they had that funny looking money too, and a lake that said "Nipissing" which I thought funnier than hell.

From the Television Theme Song Book - Volume 2

Rawhide

Rollin' rollin' rollin' tho' the streams are swollen, keep them dogies rollin' Rawhide.
Through rain and wind and weather, hellbent for leather, wishin' my girl was by my side,
All the things I'm missin', good vittles, love and kissin' are waitin' at the end of my ride.

Move 'em on head 'em up, head 'em up, move 'em on, move 'em on, head 'em up, Rawhide!
Cut 'em out! Tiem 'em in! Ride 'em in! Turn 'em in! Cut 'em out! Ride 'em in, Rawhide__

Keep movin', movin', movin', though they're disapprovin', keep them dogies movin', Rawhide.
Don't try to understand 'em, just rope 'n' throw 'n' brand 'em, soon we'll be livin' high and dry
My heart's calculatin', my true love will be waitin' She's waitin' at the end of my ride.

Sugarfoot
The show: Tom Brewster was a peculiar western hero. He liked reading books, hated violence, and was terrible in gunfights (he could barely even shoot straight). In fact, he was so inept at traditional cowboy things that other cowboys had to invent a new term to describe him - "sugarfoot", one step lower than the lowly "tenderfoot". Brewster was an educated Easterner who was studying law with a correspondence school. He travelled west in the 1860s, full of dreams about the romance of the wild west, but kept finding trouble instead of adventure. And since he wasn't too handy with six-guns, all he could do was try to bluff his way out of dangerous situations. This method often flabbergasted his enemies. On the first episode of the show, for example, one villan (played by Dennis Hopper) asked him: "Whaddya tryin' to do, talk me to death?" And he was!



The Rebel
Words by Richard Markowitz and Andrew Fenady

Chorus
Johnny Yuma was a rebel,
He roamed through the west
Did Johnny Yuma, The Rebel
He wandered alone.

He searched the lands, this restless lad,
He was panther quick and leather tough
And he figured he'd been pushed enough,
The REBEL, Johnny Yuma

He got fightin' mad, this rebel lad,
He packed no star as he wandered far,
When the only law was a hook and a draw
The REBEL, Johnny Yuma

He was fightin' mad, this rebel lad
With a dream he'd hold 'till his dying breath
He'd search his soul and gamble with death,
The REBEL, Johnny Yuma

oh, forgot, the Rawhide theme song was by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington.

Apparently, the theme song for Davy Crockett was written by Tom Blackburn, with words by George Bruns. There are TWENTY verses to it!

The explanation for the twenty verses comes from using the tune to intro each segment of the series as Davy's "life" unfolded, hence verses about the Alamo, going to Washington, and even a few on Mike Fink.

Does anybody remember a show "Branded"? I seem to recall the opening titles were an officer being "drummed out" of a military (presumably ACW)unit, buttons off, shoulder straps off, broken sword, the lot. (IIRC the gimmick was that he kept the sword cut doen as a bowie knife).

As far as I recall, the thee was something like: All but one man died,

All but one man died,

there at Bitter creek

And they say he ran away!

BRANDED !

Marked with a coward's shame!

What do you do when you're branded?

When you fight for your name?

Whatever you do for the rest of your life

You must prove you're a man….

And that's where a somewhat faulty memory runs out

Does anyone remember or have I got an over active imagination?

When Rawhide shot locations in the California foothills outside of Sonora, my dad happened to be calling on accounts in the same area. After he'd watched from the roadside for a while, Dad was invited to stand with the actors off camera. Long story short, Clint Eastwood had a long break and showed Dad around, explaining how shots were set up, introducing him to other actors and stuntmen, and playing the host. Eventually Dad joined the production company for a few after pops after work, and had a long and happy conversation with Eric Fleming. Dad spent another day on the set, and remembers those as two of the happiest days of his life.

Wow, what a great thread! I've been wanting the words to "Rawhide" and "Johhny Yuma" for ages, and now I've got 'em.

I was among the many Davy Crockett fanatics. Me and my friend Johhny Cartwright fought the battle of the Alamo innumerable times, atop my parents oil tank, finally dying under an unstoppable horde of kamikaze Mexicans. Dramatic stuff. He was bigger and tougher than me, so he got to be Crockett and I played Georgie Russel.

I have since come to have quite a liking for Mexicans...

One more odd cultural note (I know most of you are Americans)...the Swamp Fox was not so popular in Canada, since we rather liked the British redcoats up here. They saved our bacon quite a few times. Accordingly, the Canadian kids I knew made fun of him by changing some of the words..."Swamp Fox, Swamp Fox, rides through the glen, falls in the mud with his fifty men" (and some stuff that was more insulting than that...)

Needless to say, we have mixed feelings about Mel Gibson's latest movie as well.

This is the story of twenty-six men, who rode the Arizona territory. Praised be the glory of twenty-six men, whose courage helped to build the territory. Twenty-six men, who saddled up and then rode out to answer duty's call. Twenty-six men, who lived to ride again and fight for the right and the liberty of all. Saddle up, saddle up, saddle up.

Bud Savoie: You're right! I was wrong! It was 26 Men I was thinking about, starring Tris Coffin and a young man Russ Hayden found working in a local department store here in Phoenix. I can't remember his name and I'm not sure he ever appeared in anything else. 16 Men didn't look quite look right when I typed it, but it was rather late at night, etc. etc.

As an aside, Hayden and I lunched together one day to discuss the possiblility of the Phoenix Symphony recording a two minute intro for a new series he was pitching the network. We were interested (the symphony) but it would have required Hayden paying the same Union scale that would be required had he used the New York Philharmonic, (admittedly a bit better orchestra) so he had it recorded in Mexico.

Got to find and dust off my copy of the book "The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters" and see if it was a tv tie-in. The coupla good lines I remember from the book are, "Absence of heartbeat, small round blue hole in forehead. Diagnosis: dead (of gunshot wound).

Just a small correction I offer. The Mike Fink song didn't have the words "women: and "bold" in it. 'Twent like dis:

Girls run and hide,/ and brave men shiver;/ I'm Mike Fink,/ King of the River!

I, too, was a Davy Crockett--how shall I put it?--aficionado! Well, I was a lunatic. I was about seven or eight when the rage spread. I figured at the end that Davy wiped out the entire Mexican army. Well, I wanted to figure that, but part of me knew he died, Davy did. By the way, his motto was more accurately as follows:

<< Be always sure you're right, then go ahead. >>

I have adopted it as one of my own, along with Archimedes's << Do not disturb my circles. >>

I've been trying to find the complete lyrics to Texas John Slaughter and Elfego "El Gato" Baca, by the way.

Here's a song I ain't seen mentioned yet---

Who is that tall dark stranger there?/ Maverick is the name./ Ridin' the trail to who knows where,/ Luck is his companion, gamblin'is his game./

Smooth as the barrel of a gun--/ Maverick is the name./ Wild as the wind in Oregon/ Whipping down a canyon,/ Easier to tame./

Riverboat ring your bell--/ Fare thee well, Annabelle,/ Luck is the lady that he loves the best--/ Natchez to New Orleans/ Livin' off Jacks and Queens,/ Maverick is the Legend of the West!/

And on that note, I close and depart---Xristos

Bat Masterson Theme

Back when the west was very young,
There lived a man named Masterson.
He wore a cane and derby hat,
They called him Bat, Bat Masterson.

The trail that he blazed is still there.
No one has come since, to replace his name.
And those with too ready a trigger,
Forgot to figure on his marching home.

Now in the legend of the west,
One name stands out of all the rest.
The man who had the fastest gun,
His name was Bat, Bat Masterson.

Well, if we're counting Disney's Davy Crockett as a "western" TV show, I guess Dan'l Boone would count too. But the song I remember was
"Daniel Boone was the daddy of them all,
Was the daddy of them all,
Was the daddy of them all,
Daniel Boone heard the western forests call,
From the mountains to the Ohio!"

DK if that was the theme song from the TV show, though. Maybe just a pop spin-off from the hit "Ballad Of Davy Crockett" song from the Disney TV show.

I should have added that, yes, "Daniel Boone (The Daddy Of Them All)" is best described as a pop spin-off of the Davy Crockett craze, as noted by Genie on January 13, 2012. I found the following text excerpt on Newspapers.com. Misspellings are from their computer conversion.

https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/155550733/
WILMINGTON MORNING NEWS, WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, FRIDAY, JUNE 24. 1955 PAGE 15
Just how long the Crockett craze will reign is hard to guess, but so far Davy's No. 1 spot In the hearts of young Americans has weathered every challenge, the latest one being the defiant musical claim, "Daniel Boone was the Daddy of them all," which, apparently, hasn't even made a dent in the solid Crockett fan line. Obviously, this pre-teen-age loyalty is not to be underestimated. When kids go to bed with coonskin caps in weather like this, it's the real McCoy. For collectors of choice cou now nis lame has been only comparable to that of Ponce de Leon, Captain John Smith or Nathan Hale. Don't misunderstand ... no one's trying te minimize the greatness of any one of these men, but certainly no one not even the father of our country has been the object of such rabid adulation by youngsters as Daw Crockett.

I used to love The Lone Ranger with his ...er...'Red Indian' (sorry) friend Tonto. The music was of course Rossini's 'William Tell Overture'
but it was years before we'd believe it wasn't Lone Ranger's tune. We'd gallop about in the school playground, slapping our own bottoms on an imaginary Silver, pretending to be him, wearing a home-made mask, and humming the tune. Cowboys-and-Indians was one of our favourite games, The boys used to be the cowboys and us girls were allocated the role of Indians.

(It was the early fifties, and nobody intended any insult to Native Americans; we'd never heard that term.)

Cisco Kid, Trackdown, Cheyenne, two episodes of Wanted: Dead or Alive, two episodes of Have Gun, Will Travel, Rawhide, Wagon Train, and Maverick. Rawhide recently replaced The High Chaparral and Maverick replaced Daniel Boone a couple of weeks ago (much to my delight). And on Sundays, the same station has Stagecoach West, Branded, The Rebel, Broken Arrow, and Yancy Derringer. Most of these shows aired 20 or so years before I was born, but I do love 'em!
