The Kingston Trio

The Kingston Trio is an American folk and pop music group that helped launch the folk revival of the late 1950s to late 1960s. The group started as a San Francisco Bay Area nightclub act with an original lineup of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds. It rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented sales of 33⅓ rpm long-playing record albums (LPs), and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S.[1] more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Rocky, do musst reiten durch die Weiten der Prairie.
Rocky, do kommst weiter, doch nach Hause kommst do nie.
Irgendwo da fiel ein Schuss I'm Dunkeln
Und dann stand ein Pferd allein am Tor.
Alle Maedel wussten wer's getan hat,
Und noch heute singen sie's uns vor.
Irgendeiner sah die fremde Maske,
Doch er sagte niemandem Bescheid.
Als die Stadt um Mitternacht I'm Schlaf lag,
Kam das grosse Feuer und das Leid.
Irgendeiner schoenen jungen Lady,
Der gefiel der fremde Kavalier.
Sie ging aus und mit ihm tanzen,
Und sie suchten lange noch nach ihr.
Rocky, you must ride through the wide prairie.
Rocky, you get on, but you never get home.
Somewhere there was a shot in the dark
And a horse stood alone at the gate.
All the girls knew who had done it
And they still sing it today.
Somebody saw the red mask,
But he didn't tell anybody.
When the town was asleep at midnight
The big fire came and the harm.
Some pretty young lady
Liked the unknown cavalier.
She went to the dance with him
And they sought for her for a long time.
