Cowboys where are you

There was a day on TV
Where westerns were all the rage
You could take your pick
From your TV paper page

Together our masked hero the Lone Ranger
With Tonto kept outlaws in a spin
Have Gun Will Travel was the card
For black dressed professional gunfighter Paladin

Wagon Train kept rolling along
Seth Adams the leader
Flint McCullough chief scout
Old Charlie Wooster was the feeder

Rawhide kept the cattle moving
Gil and Randy kept control
In Dodge City it was Gunsmoke
Marshall Matt Dillon was key role

On the ponderosa it was Bonanza
Where Ben Cartwright was the boss
With his family of three boys
Adam, little Joe and Hoss

Wells Fargo was the stagecoach
Where Jim Hardie was the star
Now these are only some
For they were many more by far

They were the Virginian and the Rifleman
Laramie, Maverick and Cheyenne
The High Chaparral not to mention alias Smith and Jones
These made us all a fan

Cowboys where are you?
Memories of you is our lot
On TV we can’t see
Is this our last shot?

    Lot of memories in this one. Gunsmoke was a favorite as was a short lived show I loved called Cimarron Strip. I thought it would be long lasting with great characters but it was cancelled too soon. Don't have the cowboys like we once did.

    thanks Vince, so you were a matt dillon fan, I don't know Cimarron strip so maybe we didn't get it in Scotland. As you say we don't have them as we used to of for these shows back again, far better than what we get served up now. take care, Gordon

    Thanks Debbie, yes I love the old cowboys, in fact in the UK I think in the 60s there were about 21 different cowboy shows on at the same time, my favs were lone ranger and wagon train. by the way I thought you still were a girl!!. God bless, Gordon
