"Hoppy, Gene and Me" by Roy Rogers

For a real treat this Saturday afternoon or any day click on the title for a link to a youtube video of Roy Rogers singing "Hoppy, Gene and Me" with great video of Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Recorded by Roy in 1974 it was a fitting tribute to a simpler time ,now unknown, to many young people. Yes, I was a "saddlepal to Hoppy Gene and Me."

It seems like only yesterday that we rode the range together. Praire skys and tumbleweeds, just as far as we could see. Then, you grew up and drifted on. But I know you will remember, when you were a saddlepal of, Hoppy, Gene and Me.....
