When the good folks at Hal Leonard needed assistance for their Cowboy Songs collection, Gene Autry Entertainment was happy to help. Gene's movie and radio performances, along with sheet music from his extensive collection, provided just the research they needed to create this thoroughly enjoyable songbook. Sheet music and lyrics for songs heard 'round the campfire on the lone prairie include: Back in the Saddle Again, Dude Ranch Cowhands, Happy Trails, I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart, Listen to the Rhythm of the Range, (Ghost) Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend), Sing Me a Song of the Saddle, Strawberry Roan, and more. You'll want to learn all 62 of these classic cowboy songs to sing with your saddle pals, or perhaps to sing from the saddle!
