This song was sung by Dean Martin in the John Wayne movie, "Rio Bravo". Does anyone know the lyrics? Thanks, Jeepman

My Rifle Pony and Me
- from the John Wayne western "Rio Bravo"
- sung by Dean Martin

Sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream
The redwing settles in the nest
It's time for a cowboy to dream

Purple light in the canyon
that is where I long to be
With my three good companions
just my rifle pony and me

Gonna hang my sombrero
on the limb of a tree
Coming home sweet my darling
just my rifle pony and me

Whipporwill in the willow
sings a sweet melody
Riding to Amarillo
just my rifle pony and me

No more cows to be ropin'
No more strays will I see
'round the bend shell be waitin
For my rifle pony and me
For my rifle my pony and me

I love this song, and the movie. Rick Nelson on guitar don't forget, and Walter Brennan waiting to wail into "Get Along Home Cindy Cindy".

And how about Rick Nelson's guitar with the rose painted on it? I have an old Gibson and have often thought about getting a rose painted on it. What do y'all think?
