Name Your Favorite WESTERN song...
[Return to Topics]

Probably the most famous Western/Cowboy song is Gene Autry's classic BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN. The most famous Western Swing song ever recorded is Bob Wills & his Texas Playboys' SAN ANTONIO ROSE. My all time favorite Western song is RAGTIME COWBOY JOE, written in Brooklyn, NY back in 1912. Anyone care to mention their favorite Country or WESTERN song(s)? Can anyone mention their least favorite/most obnoxious C&W song(s)? Any history or stories to tell behind your choices?

Long Black Veil (Lefty's Version) would make my list. Also, T for Texas, I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry (of course), and Keith Whitley's Till Each Tear You Cry Becomes A Rose.

You gotta have Geo Jones in there. I can't get enough of Merle H. Ricky Skaggs, also some great Gospel stuff. and of course Flatt & Skruggs. Especially Earl and that 5 string.

Old Hawkshaw bit the dust or rock I should say with Patsy Cline and another singer I cant think of him, back mabey 30-40 years ago. Plane crash.

How about Henson Cargill singing "Skip a rope" Says a lot about today's way of thinking " Don't worry about the rules, just play to win." Wish I had a CD of that album. Johnny in E.Tx.

Henson Cargill has a new CD he is releasing. It does have "Skip a Rope" on it. Henson has e-mail at GARGILLMUSIC@AOL.COM It is new, so if you have any problems locating it let me know.
