Roy Rogers

Roy Rogers, born Leonard Franklin Slye (November 5, 1911 – July 6, 1998), was an American singer and cowboy actor, one of the most heavily marketed and merchandised stars of his era, as well as being the namesake of the Roy Rogers Restaurants franchised chain. He and his wife Dale Evans, his golden palomino, Trigger, and his German Shepherd dog, Bullet, were featured in more than 100 movies and The Roy Rogers Show. The show ran on radio for nine years before moving to television from 1951 through 1957. His productions usually featured a sidekick, often either Pat Brady (who drove a Jeep called "Nellybelle"), Andy Devine, or the crotchety George "Gabby" Hayes. Rogers's nickname was "King of the Cowboys". Evans's nickname was Queen of the West. more »

One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning 
Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said boys I'm not turning 
I'm headin for a land that's far away beside the crystal fountains 
So come with me we'll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains 

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains there's a land that's fair and bright 
Where the handouts grow on bushes and you sleep out every night 
Where the boxcars are all empty and the sun shines every day 
On the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees 
Where the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings 
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains 

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains all the cops have wooden legs 
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay soft boiled 
eggs 
The farmer's trees are full of fruit and the barns are full of hay 
Oh, I'm bound to go where there ain't no snow 
Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow 
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains. 

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains you never change your socks 
And the little streams of alcohol come a-tricklin' down the rocks 
The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind 
There's a lake of stew and of whiskey too 
You can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe 
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains 

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains the jails are made of tin 
And you can walk right out again as soon as you are in 
There ain't no short handled shovels, no axes saws or picks 
I'm a goin to stay where you sleep all day 
Where they hung the jerk that invented work 
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains 

I'll see you all this coming fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountains
