I just love the sound of an old theme song sung in harmony:

I know it wasn't their theme song, but I loved the one Pernell sang when he was on The Virginian.
I do too and he had a cold when he sang that.

I was going to share another Marty Robbins theme, from a Western I've only seen on TV, but for some reason the embed isn't working (with or without the youtube button). So here's the shortcut: https://youtu.be/PbX1JKknS04

Whoever sang the opening for Cheyenne sounded a lot like George Alexander (he sang the opening song for the Howard Hawks film "El Dorado".)

I love the theme song from "Zorro"; always have and always will. My parents owned a VHS tape that had about five episodes on it and I would watch it over and over again. I'm kind of surprised that I didn't wear the tape out. :laughing
Interestingly enough. The group that sang Cheyenne's theme song was the same ones who sang Zorro's!

Here is Bonanza sung by Johnny cash from 1963; it's different lyrics than the Lorne Greene version. Johnny Cash and another song writer penned these lyrics. It was originally included on his "Best of...." album which introduced Ring of Fire.

I love those old western themes! They sometimes stick in my head for several days, especially the Rawhide theme and of course, Cheyanne. :laughing
