It’s difficult to believe that the classic Western song “Riders In The Sky,” with its imagery of hard-ridin’ ghostboys rounding up unearthly cattle, had its beginnings with an animal as mundane as the burro. But that’s the case.
And it’s hard to believe that the story behind the song isn’t a cliché, since it involves a fatherless boy befriended by an eccentric character who inspired the youngster to achieve things the boy never thought possible. But truth is stranger than fiction.
The person who wrote “Riders In The Sky” was Stan Jones. Born and reared in Douglas, Ariz., he became a well-known song writer as well as a motion picture and television actor during the 1950s. In 1997, Jones was inducted into the Western Music Association’s Hall of Fame in recognition of “Riders” (“Ghost” originally wasn’t part of the title) and many other songs. And it all started with a burro.
