Thread Name: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Subject: RE: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Ian Tyson was at his best on "Cowboyography" (note spelling).

If you have that one, "Old Corrals & Sagebrush" should be on your short list.

Next would be "I Outgrew the Wagon" or maybe "Eighteen Inches of Rain".

I believe Ian did "Summer Wages" at least three or four times over the years,
but the original Ian and Sylvia version is still tops in my book.
