RE Celtic & Western

Those blasted (blasting?) Hibernians try to subborn every music genre going - I'm waiting for some member of the Irish mafia to claim that Beethoven was really Loudvaich O'Bheathown from Tipperary!

RE Modern Cowboy Songs

How about "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor, and there's a Don McLean song whose title escapes me for the moment, "I could have been most anything that I set my mind to be, but a cowboy's life was the only one for me ...". Also "Long Black Rifle" as sung by the Kingston Trio and "South Coast" as sung by Derroll Adams and others.

Trad ditto

"Streets of Laredo", "Chisholm Trail" and "Bucking Bronco" come to mind.
