Sidekicks and Saddlepals

I have always loved Western Movies and TV Shows. As a little boy I enjoyed watching Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Gene Autry, Rex Allen and Hopalong Cassidy. I especially got a kick out of their comical friends who provided laughs on the dangerous and exciting adventures they shared.

One of my favorites was actor Harry Carey Jr. who went to “The Last Roundup” this past year.

The following ditty is a tribute to all those “Sidekicks And Saddlepals” from my childhood days.

Refrain
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
The western hero’s friends
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
The laughter never ends
For Sidekicks and Saddlepals
Each with their own style
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
The memories bring a smile

Roy and Dale rode the trail with Nelly Belle and Pat

Pancho And The Cisco Kid

Pancho And The Cisco Kid


And Pancho always brought a grin to Cisco’s fancy ride
And the Heigh Ho Silver Ranger needed Tonto by his side

Refrain

The Duke And Harry Carey Jr

The Duke And Harry Carey Jr

There was Walter Brennan and The Duke
And Smiley sang with Gene
Then Pat Buttram came along
To steal every scene
There was Chill Wills and Fuzzy Knight
Of course Andy Devine
And Harry Carey Jr.
Was a favorite pal of mine

Refrain

Ben Johnson

I remember Raymond Hatton
And I remember Andy Clyde
I remember Big Ben Johnson
That cowboy sure could ride
I remember Little Beaver
And I remember Max Terhune
And his little dummy Elmer
Outside the old saloon
Max Terhune And His Dummy Elmer

Max Terhune And His Dummy Elmer


Sidekicks and Saddlepals
They never got the girl
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
In a double feature world
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
Make the bad guys pay
Sidekicks and Saddlepals
At the cowboy matinee
