WESTERN MEMORIES

 

I grew up with the Lone Ranger
Rode the range with Roy and Dale
Hopalong Cassidy was my hero
And Zorro, he always prevailed

Marshall Dillon ruled Dodge City
Bat Masterson was a dapper man
Lucas McCain had a special rifle
Maverick played a good poker hand

Cisco and Pancho were sidekicks
Gene Autry rode a horse named “Champ”
Palladin advertised “Have Gun, Will Travel”
Rowdy Yates drove cattle, brand stamped

Seargent Preston was a Mountie
Cochise, for his people, fought
Josh Randall was a bounty hunter
Miss Kitty’s saloon was often sought

Rin Tin Tin was an army dog
Victoria Barkley dressed in style
Annie Oakley was a good shot
Hoss was gentle until he was riled

Blue Boy rode among the cactus
Cheyenne was a towering man
Hawkeye knew how to trap
Gabby Hayes, hard to understand

Quint Aspen was a halfbreed
Smiley Burnette could sing songs
Little Joe had a quick temper
Festus was there all along

Chester was a limping deputy
Daniel Boone wore a coonskin cap
Sugarfoot was a tenderfoot
Gil Favor wore rawhide chaps

All of these I grew up with
Episodes, I hardly ever missed
I watched how the west was won
Using six-guns, whips, and fists
