Roy Rogers Song: Hoppy, Gene and Me

As we say good-bye to my childhood hero, I am reminded of a song that I heard him sing on television several years ago. It was on a Statler Brothers special I think, and the name of the song was "Hoppy, Gene and Me". I only heard it the one time but I would like to have a recording of it. Does anybody know if he ever recorded it? And if so, the name of the Album/CD/Tape? Thanks.

JVZ, I don't know that one, but you might also want to look at Eric Bogle's Roy Rogers song.
And in re a query you made in another thread, Susan of DT said that she (and a few others) has editoral power over the threads and uses it ONLY to delete multiple posts.
Hope you find the song you requested, it sounds neat.
Blessings,
Barbara

Thank you, Blessings Barbara, for the info on the double postings. I don't feel so cyber-confused now.

I thought I had it on his Roy Rogers Tribute album from 1991, but it is not on that album. I just do not recall at the moment if I have it anywhere else. I do know it was from 1975, and it is available on Songs Of The West, a compilation available from CDnow. Just go to CDnow, change artist to song title, and enter Hoppy Gene and Me in the blank. It is on volume 3.

Another nice Roy Rogers 'tribute' song is 'If I Had A Boat' by Lyle Lovett, for which someone made an irreverent extra verse:
When Trigger died Roy Rogers
Had him stuffed and he put him
In a museum, you can see him there today
Roy must have loved his horse a lot
To do a funny thing like that
So I hope his wife is feeling quite o.k.

It's supposed to be true. - Susanne
