TV Western Theme Songs

Post by Tracy » Sat May 25, 2019 5:32 pm

We all love the Bonanza theme song,
one of the most recognizable television themes ever.

Although there are lyrics to the song, many prefer the instrumental only.

Does anyone have another favorite TV Western theme song?
A catchy tune you recall from your childhood?
One you've heard more recently on a western or classic TV channel?

Here's my second favorite.

"Cheyenne" which ran from 1955 to 1962,
and starring that tall, handsome man, Clint Walker.

And Danny Boy instrumental was the theme song for Make Room for Daddy.

I can hum that Bonanza theme and sing Cheyenne in my sleep! There were many versions of Shenandoah but I love the way Michael sang it. :wink

And this is the song from Robert Horton's album - what a voice!
And he wasn't hard on the eyes, either! :grin

Loved the theme song for "Have Gun, Will Travel. " 'Have Gun, Will Travel' reads the card of a man/ a knight without armor in a savage land..."

I also like the song for "Bronco, Bronco, tearin' across the western plain/ Bronco, Bronco, Bronco Layne..."

:thankyou All the WB westerns had catchy theme songs! Like Maverick and The Rebel. Later westerns such as Cimarron Strip and Lancer had wonderful music accompanying the credits, both open and closing, but no song.

thank you so much for these tunes, I have to say I don't know any of these shows but when I heard the theme songs to all of these I can hear my mum singing them in the Kitchen, a nice memory from my childhood thanks
