The Rock Western/Outlaw Fantasy Song

BTW: One Original Source: "When I Was A Cowboy" by Leadbelly


Somehow I completely missed this thread.

Excited to go through it!

Johnny Cash. "Don't Take Your Guns To Town"

Don't forget the yacht rock crowd got in on the action... Christopher Cross and Michael McDonald on backup. Heh.

Somehow forgot this sweet thing when this thread was alive:

For Spotify users, here is a playlist that I assembled? curated? that may be of interest. It's titled Psychedelic Cowboy. (Marty Stuart, Delbert McClinton, Red Dirt Rangers, Willie Nelson, Ned Sublette, Johny Cash, Calexico, John Prine, Cat Empire, Cuban Cowboys, Joe Ely, KT Oslin, Asleep at the Wheel, NRPS, Marty Robbins, David Bromberg, Chis LeDoux, Paula Cole, Shamekia Copeland, Dan Hicks, Fugees, Thin Lizzy, Red Sovine, Zevon, and many more.)

Apologies if I already shared this.
