Rio Bravo, by Howard Hawks (1959) – My rifle, my pony and me (with Dean Martin & John Wayne)


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

  1. The sun is sinking in the west
    The cattle go down to the stream
    The redwing settles in the nest

    Just my rifle, pony and me
