Dean Martin My Rifle, My Pony And Me Lyrics

Last updated: 11/16/2013 06:30:38 PM

The sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream
The redwing settles in the nest
It's time for a cowboy to dream

Purple light in the canyons
That's where I long to be
With my three good companions
Just my rifle, pony and me

Gonna hang (gonna hang) my sombrero (my sombrero)
On the limb (on the limb) of a tree (of a tree)
Coming home (coming home) sweetheart darling (sweetheart darling)
Just my rifle, pony and me
Just my rifle, my pony and me

(Whippoorwill in the willow
Sings a sweet melody
Riding to Amarillo)
Just my rifle, pony and me
No more cows (no more cows) to be roping (to be roping)
No more strays will I see
Round the bend (round the bend) she'll be waiting (she'll be waiting)
For my rifle, pony and me
For my rifle, my pony and me

Dean Martin .................the coolest man ever . Multi-talented in all fields of entertainment, and when it came to singing , God must have sprayed his throat with a rainbow.

Dreaming | Reviewer: Charltun | 9/20/13

Dreaming! Dino was as cool as they come!
This song
Is where a lot of folks 'want to be'.
Picture That setting sun casting shadows on
The canyon walls, hues of the rainbow glitter
here and there. Feel that calm feeling go
Through your soul. Find a campsite, take care of your
pony. Brew some warm beverage, look at the
stars twinkle in the night sky. Feel a slight breeze
as it whispers gently through the pines. Feel
at ease with yourself and leave the cares of
the world behind, even for a day. Thank you God
for just this small measure of peace.
tars glitter

It's funny, when Dean Martin had his TV show I didn't miss a one. All of my friends were listing to the Rolling Stones, Beatles, etc. But Dean and Elvis...the best. I have just about all of Deans Albums. I started buying them when I 13.It was a very sad day for me too when these two Champions died.

Nostalgic and Unforgettable!! | Reviewer: FAS1 | 6/18/12

Just finished watching "Rio Bravo" again for the umpteenth time last night on TCM. One of my Top Ten Westerns of all time, with that remarkable cast of Wayne, Martin, Nelson, Dickinson, Brennan, Bond, and Akins. One of the highlights is that timeless song, "My Rifle, My Pony, and Me," done by Dean and Ricky. (And a nice contribution by Walter Brennan on the harmonica!!) It always brings back many fond memories of my youth...and a much simpler time. Howard Hawks did a wonderful job directing this film...and the musical score by Dimitri Tiomkin was special, too. BRAVO...for "Rio Bravo!!"

Just great! | Reviewer: Hawkeye_Pierce | 5/12/12

Wonderful song and a even greater voice! Reminds me so much on my childhood and my younger years... .
Sadly, nowadays stuff like this isn't made any more.
Always loved the voice of Dino, may he rests in peace, seeing he is still remembered.

Sheer magic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/20/12

this song, My rifle, my pony, and me, makes me calm and peaceful. Deans voice is magical, and the input of Ricky Nelson on this song is slight, but definitely enhancing. I play it every day, especially when driving. There is a soothing element to this song - I never tire of hearing it - no words can describe the magic.

Dean Martin's voice is proof there is a God. Ever watch him sing lying down? His rendition of My Rifle, My Pony & Me is the best, even better than Don Williams', the author and probably the best musical storyteller there is. What a fabulous talent was Dean Martin. I cried like a baby when he died and I feel a pull at my heart every time I hear this beautiful song.

Dean Martin a natural born genius | Reviewer: Kamy Khavajian | 7/15/09

Dean Martin was, is and will be the greatest singer of all time. Good singers must have the God-Given voice. trainig could help, but that is only 10%, 90% is the God given talent. Frank Sinatra had the training but not the good voice of Dino. Unfortunately Dino was overshadowed either by silly, stupid Jerry Lewis, or by ignorant, Knavish, gangster, Francis Albert Sinatra. May God bless his soul.
