Great tune from the “Other” King Of The Cowboys. His theme song in later years.
..09 Can any one explain why Roy, Dale and Company are hauling a missile
around in” Peaceful” Valley in a buckboard?
@LES6723 And all this time I thought Trigger wrote Happy Trails in New York.
@dog1701 Happy Trails was written by Dale Evans in Chicago
Thanks for posting this, it is great
@navydoctrinidad AHHHH MY BAD!! A completely different song! Rod Stewart sang the Van Morrison version though…NOT the Wiseman version.
@navydoctrinidad Actually, it was written by GENE AUTRY & Scotty Wiseman and was a huge hit for Gene Autry. A classic
@shonpistoll “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” was written in 1945 by Scotty Wiseman. Major hit ever since. Charlie
@dog1701 Actually it’s a COVER by Rod Stewart. Van Morrison is the original writer and singer of Have I Told You Lately…
@dog1701 Thank you for the note. Well said. Charlie
Schockdoc complians about Dale’s song elsewhere, too. She did not plagarize. There are 2 songs titled “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You.” One is sung by Rod Stewart, the other is a Country standard. Is that plagarism? No, because they’re 2 different pieces of work with different melodies, even though the themes are the same. Plagarism is quoting EXTENSIVELY from a work and claiming it to be yours, not taking 2 words from a song and creating something new SD shouldn’t slander the dead.
I believe that Roy Rogers was the ONLY KING OF THE COWBOYS. Gene Autry wasn’t as good a singer as Roy
Dale Evans stole the title and first 3 notes. Never gave Foy NOTHIN’ I always wondered about her and her ‘Christian’ ways.
Dale HAD to have gotten the idea from this. Tho her song is different, the first 3 notes (and title) are the same. Foy Willing, who wrote this, said’ I had the copyright on this, but didnt do anything about it. I often wondered how they felt about this.” Poor foy. Dale is a plagiarist!!!!
Sticks in my mind…was that the same valley that the “jolly green guy “ was from? Something to do with peas, or vegetables of some kind.
@pleiotropik Amazing enough, it is still classified information to this day. Sorry.
I do have a Question… Where are they taking the rocket? Why do they have a rocket?
What wonderful memories of two great people who affected our lives in such a positive way!
@bci76179 Check the comment below by TopazDupree 8 months ago regarding a song by Foy Willing. I think he hit the nail on the head. Thanks for watching. Charlie
Does this song have any other title than “Happy Trails”? and is it available somewhere? I can’t find it anywhere including ITunes and some of the search engines.
@bci76179 Thanks for watching. I sure won’t argue between Gene and Roy. Have a good day and hurry back and see if you can find something else that you might like. Charlie
Love this and thanks for posting it. However, there is ONLY one King of the Cowboys…Roy Rogers!!
@GMYellowstone Great comment. I agree wholeheartedly. You are certainly welcome for the clip. Come back soon. Charlie
SO nice!!! I wish we had movies and TV like this today! Luckily we have the DVD’s and such of this, though Thanks for posting!!!
@TopazDupree I forgot, John Wayne was also called the “First Singing Cowboy.”
