Thread Name: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Subject: RE: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Just remembered the other album in Ian Tyson's cowboy series. It's called "And Stood There Amazed." The title comes from the second or third verse of "Home on the Range" and I think it was the first time I'd ever heard anything past the first verse of that tune.

Just a by-the-by Ian does dynamite versions of Navajo Rug and Night Rider's Lament in this series, plus a lot of other songs that have been mentioned above by other artists.

And don't take it that I'm slighting any of the other performers like Utah Phillilps and The Sons of the Pioneers They're great too. There's also Marty Robbins, who did some great songs, albiet a little too slickly for my tastes in some instances.
