I haven't seen any music either. There is some Gene Autry sheet music, with Piano, Guitar, and Words. It has alot of songs RR sings. I can find the name if your interested.
Hot Heads and Cold Hearts never solved anything.

I have the chords for Nightime in Nevada and Little Joe the Wrangler and a few others. I also have a ton of regular Western songs.

I know not one thing about a guitar but, I had some piano music from songs Dale and Roy sang/cannot remember where I purchased the music.....many years ago. After lending the music to so many people, it became "displaced" at some point in time. My piano instructor knew how much I wanted the music and she fooled around and wrote the notes for me to use on some songs. What a pianist and now so missed by all here on earth......Thanks Ms. Turner for all the hours you spent with me!

My sis had chords and lyrics for Happy Trails, a 4 Legged Friend, Back in the Saddle Again (right, that's an Gene Autry song), Yellow Rose of Texas, Don't fence Me In, and Along the Navajo Trail, I think. I'll see if she can send them to you.

Oh yes, you could always buy the It Was Always the Music book that has the chords/lyrics in it.

One item of interest that I remember about Roy's later years is that you didn't see him play the guitar very much. So, it was great joy that on the Disney Channel's monthy Roy and Dale program, Roy often played his guitar. Visually his style was unique and I enjoyed watching him play. He was very good, too.

Two of the very best pure guitar players were Vince Gill and Glen Campbell.. Willie too had his own magic with an old battered acoustic few could ever match.

I'll find the name of the music ASAP.

I don't play hardly any guitar, but I can pick a few things out. Right now, I'm playing 2 (almost 3) other instruments.

I'd like to see one "almost play" an instrument. Sounds like an accomplishment.

I used to practice playing to a goat our neighbor's owned to keep the weeds down. I would go out by the fenceline, straddle it and bother him with an Elvis tune as he grazed. That was back in the fifties...today I would get arrested for cruelity to animals.

That goat never liked me much, come to think of it.

CGFan was trying to teach me the chords for Happy Trails...my poor fingers never made it. They might be stronger know since I've been playing with Ruffian. Goodness knows I've gotten enough (literal) rope burns...

At least the goat could not talk back and tell what he thought about what he had been listening to!

Don't you love the scenes in Along the Navaho Trail when RR and DE sind together while Roy plays the guitar? They are some of my favorite parts of that movie!

I've already posted this years ago but will mention it again as it seems appropriate.
When our grandson who is now 7 1/2 yrs old, was an infant, I took great joy in rocking him to sleep singing Happy Trails, Christian Cowboy and other western songs as they came to mind. Those are what we, who are experienced, recognize as the "good old days."
