"Big Ball's In Cowtown" by Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. George Straight with Asleep At The Wheel also did a great rendition of it.

 

"Big Iron" Marty Robbins

 

Big Ball's in Cowtown is a Classic!!!!

Lots of GREAT Cow Boy songs! Many of them are favorites. Can't pick out just one. May have missed it, but Dave Stamey is great artist.

Here's one that I really like.

I couldn't pick just one favorite from the hundreds of great Cowboy songs , but I really like The Sons of the Pioneers 1947 version of Blue Shadows on the Trail. And Gene Autry's Riding Down the Canyon. And Jimmy Wakely's Along the Santa Fe Trail.

Not to mention Rex Allen , R.W. Hampton , Don Edwards , Eddy Dean ,,,,,,,

Too many , Rex :D

Ghost Riders in the Sky....... Unbelievably Awesome !!!!!!

 

Ever heard the original version by Burl Ives ?????

 

Not Vaughn Monroe?!?

 

Update: Apparently neither, in fact. Google sez one Stan Jones had the original release.

Yes, Stan Jones wrote Ghost Riders in the Sky and did make a very early recording of it.

But I THINK Burl Ives version was the first released recording of the song.

The most successful recording was the one by Vaughn Monroe.

 

They're All Great !!!!!

All great stuff. Ran needles through all of Marty Robbins records and while Bob Wills isn't technically cowboy to me I wore his out and many others too. Andy Wilkinson, relative of Charlie Goodnight is another I really like! Got my byline from this song:

 

 

 

This one always swells the chest and puts a lump in the throat:
