Music I Like: Gunsmoke Theme - Tex Ritter

Here's something I'll bet a lot of you haven't heard: the vocal version of the theme from GUNSMOKE, sung by the great Tex Ritter. I've been listening to it for years (and I know a few of you buckaroos have, too) because it was on a CD that a good friend sent to me. It was never played on the TV show, as far as I know.

Yep, pardner, ol' Tex had some good ones. My favorite has always been High Noon, though.

My dad had the record with the song that goes "I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven." Played it over and over one summer. And spurs that jingle jangle jingle. And it seems like John Ritter sang a few bars of that on Threes Company once.
