This is NOT in the database at all. It's on the sound-track of Sleepless in Seattle, and it grew on me.

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN
(Ray Whitley)
As recorded by Gene Autry, 1939. (Okeh 05080, Columbia 37010)

I'm back in the saddle again
Out where a friend is a friend
Where the longhorn cattle feed
On the lowly jimson weed
Back in the saddle again

Ridin' the range once more
Totin' my old forty-four
Where you sleep out ev'ry night
And the only law is right
Back in the saddle again.

Whoopee-ti-yi-yo, rockin' to and fro
Back in the saddle again
Whoopee-ti-yi-yay, I go my way,
Back in the saddle again

(Repeat.)

You can use an ABC program to create a score from the ABC notation at MUS ADD: Back In The Saddle Again. The MIDI is there in MIDItext form as well. John in Brisbane posted the melody nearly five years ago.

Once I saw some cattle that had fed on the 'loly jimson weed'. Moast of them had to be put down. Roy never really was a cowboy, was he? Good song, though.

Jimson weed belongs to the poisonous nightshade (Datura) family. Nice big trumpet flowers, though.

Though "Back in the Saddle" was Gene Autry's signature song, it was actually written by another "singing cowboy", Ray Whitley.

Here's the story Whitley told about writing it (from this site):

Ray was scheduled to report to the lot early one morning in 1938, when at 5:00 a.m. he was awakened by a demanding telephone. Returning to his bedroom, he smiled at his wife, Kay, and said, "Well, I'm back in the saddle again." Then he went on to explain that the telephone call had come from the studio, requesting him to produce a new song for the George O'Brien feature, BORDER G-MAN, in which Ray was starred. "You've got a title for one right there", Kay informed him. "I'm Back in the Saddle Again." Ray sat down on the edge of the bed and dashed off the verse --- and performed the song in the movie only hours later. When Autry heard the number he went for it in a big way. Getting together with Ray, they rewrote it, though the changes appear to have been very slight. The rest is history. "Back in the Saddle Again" was first featured by Gene Autry in his 1939 movie, ROVIN' TUMBLEWEEDS, and has been identified as Gene's theme song ever since. Later, Autry recorded a number of Whitley compositions, including "Ages and Ages Ago", "Rocky Canyon", "Lonely River" and "I Hang My Head and Cry". Tex Ritter, Johnny Bond, Sonny James and others were also to make profitable use of Ray's material.

By the way, Ray Whitley is also known as the performer for whom Gibson Guitars made the first "Super Jumbo" J-200 guitar. And, incidentally, Gene Autry was the performer for whom C.F. Martin made the first D-45.

Tribute to Gene Autry, 1907-1998 Well, my little Buckaroos and Buckarets, another of our white-hatted heros has left us to work at the feet of that big range-boss in the sky. Like Roy, Gene had influenced my moral upbringing in the days of the Saturday movie matinee, before TV. Good always wins; Bad never prospers. I would like to believe that I carried the tenets he taught me as a youth through my adult life. With unashamed tears tricklin' down our cheeks, lets sing his theme song.

BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN
as sung by Gene Autry as remembered by Charles Allen,<callen@vs1.invsn.com>

4/4 brightly (G)

G               D       G    G7
I'm back in the saddle again
C                      G      G7
Out where a friend is a friend
         C               Cdim
Where we sleep out every night
               G       Em
Where the only law is "right"
    A          D      G
I'm back in the saddle again

G          D          G    G7
Riding the range once more
C         Cdim G G7
Totin' my old '44
          C                  Cdim
Where the long-horned cattle feed

On the lonely jimson weed

I'll be on my way
    A          D      G
I'm back in the saddle again.

note 1: as a youngster I learned this song with just a simple two-string "G", and "C" and "D". Ah, those memories.

note 2: Cdim ?

Bee-dubya-ell - you might enjoy this thread about Ray Whitley. I started it, origianlly without his name in the title because I didn't know who he was as the Westerns channel didn't show the movie credits. Just found his name, today, and added info from the same website you'd found. Good stuff, eh?!

Thanks,

kat
