Robin Wood (1931-2009) in memoriam

My Rifle, My Pony, And Me
(Dimitri Tiomkin, Paul Francis Webster)
perf. Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson in Rio Bravo (1959)

Purple light in the canyon
That's where I long to be
With my three good companions
Just my rifle, pony, and me

Gonna hang my sombrero
On the limb of a tree
Comin' home sweetheart darlin'
Just my rifle, pony and me

Whippoorwill in the willow
Sings a sweet melody
Ridin' to Amarillo
Just my rifle, pony, and me

No more cows to be ropin'
No more strays will I see
Round the bend she'll be waitin'
For my rifle, pony, and me
For my rifle, my pony, and me
