BACK TO BACK VERSIONS OF HOME ON THE RANGE. FIRST, ROY ROGERS FRONTING THE SONS OF THE PIONEERS, FOLLOWED BY A GENE AUTRY VERSION (INCOMPLETE). A NICE BIT OF NOSTALGIA.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
@ghedehoungan This is a song all AMERICANS respect, including Native Americans. Will Rogers loved this song. You’re the ignorant racist, so get a life, bozo.
Brings back childhood memories for me … watchin them early westerns on a black and white TV …..
anyone who appreciate this song without even notice how racist it is, is an ignorant.
I’m sorry, but this song is as idiot as a nazi song saying how nice it is to get rid of the jews.
THE WHITE MAN CAME,
“THIS LAND IS MY LAND, THIS IS YOUR LAND” THEY SANG:
HOME, HOME ON THE RANGE…
(Tori Amos, Home On The Range-Cherokee Edit.)
I have to sing this, and Moon River for my singing exam?!
Yes remember going to the pictures in South Australia for the mattinee as kids,Gene Autry, Roy and Dale, Hoppalong Cassidy, Lone Ranger etc. Big programmes two movies seperated by serial, cartoons, newsreel, no airconditioning in theatres in those days, on the rare days we went into Adelaide we had someone playing the wuilitzer organ before and at interval time at the best theatres. Brings back memories of my childhood, many thnx.
Great song. Roy and Gene were my heroes when I was a kid. Don’t
seem to have any nowadays.
I visited the Roy Rogers Museum when it was in Apple Valley, CA. Sad to
say it moved to Bronson, MO and now has closed.
There is a great Western Museum in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, named
after Gene. If my health were better, I’d volunteer as a docent.
Tnx for the musical post.
a great pity the red man had his land stolen from you yanks
What if you didn’t want to wear a cowboy hat?
When my kids used to argue, we’d have them put their arms around each other and sing “Home on the Range” together. By the time the song was over, they’d be friends and happy once again.
I love this old song.
I am 20 and this stuff is better for my soul than anything today is, but it is kind of sad because when I am 70, I don’t know if anyone will remember this music or if this music will be even available.
Roy Rogers did good.
Rekindles childhood memories.
Thanks for sharing this piece of nostalgia.
ugghhh…. it soothed to my nerve… i missed my dad who used to sing this every time i go to sleep……. RIP daddy…
Nostalgic and nice song ! Great memories !
Roy Rogers and Gene Autry–who could ask for more? Thanks for sharing it!
Memories of the 40s……
Go for IT! TheShadow.
I am 50 000 times sicker than you.I am blind,deaf and dumb.Can not write or read!
I am BillyTheKid!
Let us sing together!
@dracodormiens7 not only exposed as FRAUDS, but were caught, red handed, trying to cover their tracks. My, God, how much more could an unbiassed observer ask?
“Peak oil” is the bookend. We’ve something like 300% on reserve as in ’70. The discredited Paul Erlich still holds sway at Stanford, one of Americas’ foremost institutes of “Higher learning”. His “The Population Bomb” came off the press forty years ago. THREE out of ONE HUNDRED predictions that he made have come to pass.
@dracodormiens7 You’re damned right I’ve got a “ventetta”. I was present the night that Benjamin Netanyahu was shouted down from the podium at Cal Berkeley, the BIRTHPLACE of the so-called “Free Speech Movement”. What a goddamned LAUGH! What frightens me about academia is that it’s literally the only place where a guy can be asininely wrong throught an entire career and nevetr be called on it. Look at the recent exposure of the global warming scam. The “scholars” responsible for it were
@theshadow1932 I’m not being smug. You just seemed to have some sort of vendetta against it. It isn’t indoctrination unless the person isn’t allowed to question or critique the information given to them, and I find that college allows for plenty of opportunities to do so. At least in the field I’m in.
As far as imperialism goes, I’m not saying it’s necessarily a bad thing that technology and “civilization” was brought over. Displacing people and mass murdering them tends to be a negative thing.
@dracodormiens7 Imperialism? Hell yeah! Nobody with any brains can claim that the world didn’t work better when more of it was in the hands of civilized people.
@dracodormiens7 I did just fine, actually. Given another chance, though, I wouldn’t bother. So much of what passes for education is simple indoctrination; an exchange of ignorance. What saved me was that I was a grown man, when I attended, so had a well developed BS detector and couldn’t be snowed as were so many of the kids. What you said, though, brought back some amusing memories of smug academics who probably couldn’t have managed a McDonald’s drive through.
@theshadow1932 HUMAN resource, not natural resources. A statement such as yours can only be the product of someone who didn’t make it in to college. Vindictive much? Honestly, my level of education has nothing to do with my views on imperialism.
Those with less resources………. you mean the entire North American CONTINENT, with all of its’ natural riches and with which they’d done virtually NOTHING while the Europeans were building all of Western Civilization? My friend, you MUST have gone to college. A statement as moronic as yours can ONLY be the product of higher education. I pity you. Please don’t breed.
