Sing Along With . . . Gunsmoke


Here's your chance to practice up for your next visit to a Karaoke bar. Just click the arrow below to fire up the jukebox and hear Tex Ritter sing the Gunsmoke theme. Then join right in. (Extra points for harmonizing.)

Gunsmoke by Tex Ritter


Gunsmoke trail
Oh tell me of days gone by
So alone, you still wind your way
All the ghostly horsemen ridin’
As they speed the Eastern mail
It’s up to you to see them through
Gunsmoke trail

The gunsmoke now has faded from the blazin’ .44s
The stagecoach is rusted on the hill
The wagon wheels you used to feel
Will sing their song no more
The sound of the caravan is stilled

Gunsmoke trail
No traveler can tell where you go
Sands of time are hidin’ your way
Then if heaven ever let you
You could tell a rugged tale
That’s why I hate to see you fade
Gunsmoke trail

And if heaven ever let you
You could tell a rugged tale
That’s why I hate to see you fade
Gunsmoke trail

I'm afraid the people will think someone is being murdered if i'm start to sing.

Get back to writing. Now we want 90,000 words.

I don't hear you singing, Rick. (Deka, you are excused.)

Good stuff. I got a kick out of this. I'm a big Gunsmoke fan.

Sounds like a song the Moops need to record.
