"Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia met when they were teenagers and played folk music together after Garcia formed the grateful dead in the mid sixties. Steve Hunter started writing most of the lyrics for Garcia songs in the mid sixties the grateful dead were the house band for Ken Keyes Asa Tests Parties in which people were tripping out on. LSD parties that helped bring acid into the counterculture hunters first experience with LSD and other psychedelics was when he was given them as part of a Stanford Research Project that he did not know was funded by the CIA which was looking for a mind control drug the CIA as mind control program was the subject of an interview. We did just a few weeks ago on fresh air. My interview with Robert Hunter was recorded in nineteen eighty eight seven seven years before the death of Jerry Garcia when you're writing a song with Garcia and he's writing the music. You're writing the lyrics. Let me ask that age old question of which comes I well what's happening right. Now is Jerry's coming over to the house every day. We're getting some songs together for a new album and I give him some starter ideas and he he's he's looks at those and we just batter it back and forth and back and forth these songs for people that are true collaboration and for the most part there are times when handed him lyrics and he set them other times when he's handed me accomplished changes and put words to those but when it works best is and we actually get our heads together and battle it back and forth until there's something that we mutually agree on when you were traveling with the ban and the the people who are onstage age would get so much attention. Would you ever feel a little left out as the lyricist who wasn't on the stage basking and all the glory you Bet I did. Oh Oh misery jerk sub. They're getting all that glory and all girls and everything like that and just miserable. All I have is my spiral notebook YEP boy. I'll get even can you confirm this for me. I read somewhere that you are one of the participants in the Stanford University Program of government experimentation with LSD in the early nineteen sixties yeah they paid me one hundred and forty dollars to take I LSD second suicide. I'm I think third mescaline and then the fourth fourth week all three of them together which which was joy in one way but they they also came into five sees a blood every two hours and when you're winged out on acid here comes dracula again gosh. What did they tell you about. LSD before they gave it to you the first time nothing nothing they didn't want me to know a thing about it and I lied to the my Tolan that I knew nothing about it and I had read doors of perception in fact the program proudly Yell and and they called it. the word at the time was psycho my medic drugs miming psychosis and they wanted to find out if it increase your ability to be a hypnotized into into take suggestions and I don't know what they found out from that I was sitting there and they were trying to to run these these little hypnotic things. I'm remember and all of a sudden tears began running out of my eyes and the psychologist said Oh well what's happening here. I said well. It's kind of hard to describe it. I'm out in the fifth dimension somewhere and I'm a agreed jade-green Buddha and there's a pool growing out of my lap and it's just an water. The Pool is running out of my eyes and really crying. I think they began tweeting that they were on to something a little a little bit more than a a a simple heightening of suggest ability here. Do you think that tripping a lot changed the kind of lyrics that you're writing what had to had to. I mean it was was tripping around in mystic space and making the mystic connections which I think were right for the time I look back on that stuff with a great deal of affection nor comes from I think people people do it was part and parcel that generation don't write like that anymore but I don't take drugs anymore. I figure if I had a nickel for everyone who got really high and listen to your lyrics and tried to figure around more elliptical imagery really be a wealthy woman. What are some of the crazier interpretations you've gotten a of some of your song lyrics. Oh Heavens well. There was a time I don it may still be so when when people would swear that I was writing about them and if something is personal enough. There's a certain line where it becomes universal. It's you never know which ones will and which ones won't I've written things which are so personal. Nobody could ever have the slightest idea like you know look at look for a while to China cat sunflower proud walking jingle in the midnight Sun Sun on it gets into kind of Josie and words salad and some people strangely enough no just what I mean by it but don't I couldn't explain that can ask you about a song another song oncle John's band. One of the lines is when life looks like easy street. There's danger at your door. Oh God is that true it. Could I ask if you were thought we think of something specific when you were that I was thinking about about the the sort of the Hippie self congratulatory thing we've really conquered occurred all this you know here we've got we've entered the Vietnam War. We've done this the other thing and you know things looking rosy nuts liberty. The prices prices eternal vigilance. My interview with Robert Hunter was recorded in nineteen eighty eight.

Let's get back to my interview with Doug Green. In the Ken Burns Series on the history of Country Music Green serves as an expert on cowboy songs focusing on Hollywood's famous singing Cowboy Gene Autry Green is also the author of a book about the history of the singing Cowboy Roy is best known as the lead singer of the Western band riders in the sky which has won two grammys with fellow band member. He Co host the Sirius. XM XM radio show classic Cowboy Corral on the Channel Willie's roadhouse. How did you get interested in cowboy music. A lot of different ways as my grandparents were Finnish immigrants and lived in the northern Peninsula of Michigan and they listened to the National Barn dance so a couple of my uncles in order to cheap guitars for Montgomery Ward and began winging away at him when I was about eleven I pull that guitar Uncle Hank's guitar off the wall and began weighing in on it myself and he sang and my Uncle Arvid sang and we lived in California for a couple years because my dad was in the navy for a while L. and in those days in the fifties there was a lot of music on television used to run home from school to see Sheriff John. I wanted onto the fun brigade and he saying Doyle Dell had a TV show spade. Cooley headed TV show townhall party was on and I just fell in love with the image and the the music of the West you know a kid doesn't know a lot about broken hearts and feeling sorry for yourself and fallen off a bar stool but a kid can relate to be on a horse and singing with your friends and the great outdoors and I just fell in love with Western music and I heard heard it live. I I with the band at Knott's Berry farm which has become a big amusement park now but they had a campfire at night and cowboy band would sit around dancing and songs and the romance of it completely entrenched me on your satellite radio show on Willie's Roadhouse when you play Cowboy Oh boy songs your partner in the band plays the role of the side kick because there's always a sidekick in Westerns you know whether it's like Pat Brady or you know with Roger Smiley Burnette with which in autry so this site kick is named in your work side meet and every time here's how did they come up with that name so you can explain that to me. Well every sidekick cast heavy name you know nobody there either fuzzy your or Gabby or have some sort of funny name and you know side meet has a very fascinating story. He was one of the original cowboys that drove the herds words up the Chisholm trail after the civil war and after the cowboy days were over he went panning for gold in the Yukon where he fell into the crevasse glacier sure and was flash frozen for seventy five years and what with global warming he we found him just seems thawing out and added added into our crews are cook and our sidekick. I came up with such an elaborate backstory for him yes he he co host with me. I I I provide the information and he interrupts and asks the obvious question he's got. The Voice of the grizzled old prospector certainly does Debbie Hayes was his hero. No doubt about it so let's talk a little bit about the fun and the absurdity of some singing cowboy movies. I mean like the gene autry movies for the most part. I really like cheap looking you know and are the big fights is like somebody punching each other throwing a chair over someone or jumping out the window there just like standard tropes that were for in all of them but you know you have a way for the singing cowboy to sing so sometimes he'd be singing in the saddle. Sometimes he'd be serenading girlfriend sometimes he and his his girlfriend Ruby Sing duets on their horses but sometimes he'd be singing with his guitar and suddenly this invisible string orchestras behind so can you talk about some of the beauty and some of the absurdity of the singing cowboy film well. They were fantasies. You know nobody dressed in and with those glorious outfits that they wore and they would have a fight and then his hat was completely clean and is closer completely clean. It was just a wonderful fantasy of of living in the West and as far as the orchestra coming up behind Sagebrush. I think Mel Brooks did that beautifully beautifully in blazing saddles when riding through the desert and there's the count basie orchestra behind the cactus one of the ways of getting music into Western movies. That didn't have singing cowboys in them. They're just head. Cowboys was to have a theme a tidal title theme that was a song and I think the most successful version of that was the theme for high noon which was Sung for the movie by Tex Ritter and leading later Frankie Laine had a big hit of it so we should hear that bit Batak about a little bit talk about the importance of that Song very interesting story on that because they the it wasn't part of the original movie and when they screened it they just felt they needed something really special and it happened to be Tex Ritter who just had that magnificent unique voice. I mean you you new was the second you heard him and he just really brought it home with that. Pounding beat and the sense of men say this doom yeah has very good word for it there yes there was a sense of doom that he brought to that and a great sincerity which he he projected always and it songs who's a brilliant communicator and Dave was actually my favorite singing cowboy when I was a kid dum because the song is about what the movie is about which is the bad guys are coming to seek revenge against the sheriff and the Sheriff knows he's GonNa be outnumbered but he can't Dia Dia cowards so he has to stand up to them. Even though it might be the end right his wife played by Grace Kelly's quaker she doesn't believe in violence. It's the town is all afraid of Frank Miller and his gang and Gary Cooper has to stand up to him. It's a great film is really beautifully. Shot sure here is Dmitri. Thompkin is one of the great movie composers wrote the score for this and I think he wrote the song to he did Ned Washington was the lyricist wrote the lyrics uh-huh okay so this is Tex Ritter singing high noon and one thing about tax writer. He had a really low bottom to his voice when he wanted to. Yes yes he did so. Here's the theme from Hina. Do Not Forsake Me Olma.

Oh ooh the Kabul rely on the with tried talking Bronco and than like who pillow is a the no one it'll be one his daily would time for all the when Um no no that was herb jeffries one of the black singing cowboys singing singing the cowpokes life's the only life for me a song selected for us by my guests. Doug Green who's an expert in cowboy songs and sings them with his band riders in the sky. I I think we need to get in some western swing and play some Bob Wills and the Texas playboys where does Western swing fit into cowboy music because it's it really cowboy music. No it's not there is a lot of cross fertilization but Western swing is essentially dance music and while there's a lot of a lot of the outfits are western and lot of themes of many of the songs are western. it is is really essentially dance music whereas what I call Western music or can you call cowboy. Music is more about the West and more about the harmony than it is about the the dance beat and you want to talk a little bit about the instrumentation in bubbles well sure the the Bob Wills and his Texas playboys started with a fiddler to and they added drums and piano and at his peak of Bob Course I had a very big band with two or three singers and three fiddles two guitars that steel guitar and horns it was a it was a a hillbilly a big band. I mean all the players in the band were influenced by the big bands and Dixieland and jazz that they had absorbed off the radio uh-huh and they just put instead of horns. They put their fiddles to those beats and that kind of jazz approach so we're we're. GonNa hear one of Bob Wills most famous songs as New San Antonio rose. You WanNa say a few words about it sure it was an old fiddle tune that that they he released a in late thirties and the publisher decided that they needed lyrics and so they came came up with some new lyrics and and it's become one of the great all-time standards in swing music and Country Music Bob Wells in Texas playboys playboy's.

"Rosalie Allen Singing Wide Rolling Plains and with me is Doug Green. WHO's an expert in cowboy music so that other women seem a to B yodelers on some of them like really fancy yodelers baby. I is there a reason why so many women became known for their yodeling. I suppose we can trace that back to Patsy Montana again as she just popularize it. The way Jimmy Rogers popularized it for men and gene autry and Roy Rogers and Elton Britt Rex Allen took it to whole other levels so let's get to another great woman country singer and and she's a great songwriter you referred to her because she wrote the Rosalie Allen Song that we just heard so now. We're going to hear Cindy Walker seeing one of her own songs and you know among among the songs she wrote she wrote. You don't know me which Charles has such a great recording of it was a big hit for him. A lot of our listeners might know Blue Canadian rockies that was on the birds album sweetheart of the Rodeo and as you mentioned she wrote for Bob Wills Engine Autry so and she wrote Roy Orbison son Dream Baby right right and Willie Nelson album of her songs. That's how much he appreciates her. So you've chosen a song I hereby Cindy Walker called Rydin down and the album that is from has even called the swing cowgirl from Texas and listening to this. It sounds very much like she loves bessie Smith. Oh yes she was very influenced by a lot of the performance of the twenties and thirties yeah okay so here's Cindy Walker singing one of her own cotton using Joe. Yes looking Hello Hello Goodbye Goodbye obtain. You're GONNA miss manners. A uh-huh oh Cindy Walker singing her song Rydin on down one of those songs selected forest today by Doug Green and he is an expert and Cowboy Halberg music and hosts a show on cowboy music which is called Classic Cowboy Corral on satellite radio on Willie's Roadhouse you may have also seen him on Ken Burns Country Music series so there's also movies that worst that started black singing cowboys probably the most famous so the black singing cowboys was herb jeffries and a lot of his movies have like Harlem in the title so what was the premise of of some of his movies that enabled lemon cowboy to be in the same sentence well as you sort of referred to once gene autry became popular than every studio had to have a singing cowboy and there was a Mexican singing cowboy. There was a woman singing cowgirl all-girl Dorothy page and there were four singing cowboy movies starring Herb Jeffries who is African American and the interesting thing part of it is If you see those movies there are just no white people in them is just like any other western except the entire cast is African American and I've run into many many elderly African Americans who loved Westerns and think herb jeffries frees had the idea that that there was no singing cowboy movie expressly for that audience so that's why he made those four movies and he was known as the browns bucker ru in so herb jeffries ended his movie career to join Duke Ellington's bound he did and he did that very popular Duke Ellington Record Flamingo. He's the one that saying that any at a great career as a singer he was had an incredible voice wonderful guy he lived to live to be one hundred so we're going to hear the cowpox life the only life for me and I think this is actually from the film as opposed to from record. Yes it is I'm on my show. I've taken a stripped. You could call it. I've stripped the songs out of movies for the show and this is one of them this. He has a beautiful voice as you'll here and I chose it because it just shows off his vocal talent and in the kind of songs they sang okay so this is herb jeffries.

We were looking for a name you know. Fred Doug just didn't quite cut it. Also also we listen back to my interview with grateful dead lyricist Robert Hunter. He died Monday and Maureen Corrigan reviews a book about one of the Greatest Poems of the twentieth century which she says is necessary reading in times of crisis in the new Ken Burns. PBS Series on the history of country music. My Guest Doug Green talks about the era of the singing cowboy as epitomized by the most popular one gene Autry Cowboy Lore Folk Ballads Jazz Tin Pan Alley and Hollywood are all ingredients of the music of the singing cowboys who were movie staples in the thirties and forties and then on TV in the fifties. A lot of the music has been forgotten but green wrote about its history in his book singing in the Saddle and he performs the music with his western band riders in the sky which is celebrating its forty second anniversary. They've won two grammys and in the movie Toy Story to perform the song woody's roundup the theme for the toy cowboys how boys TV puppet show green also plays Western music on the show he co host Classic Cowboy Corral on the Sirius. Xm Channel Willie's roadhouse. He's brought some great recordings for us to hear. I love this music and I hope you will to the Greene. Welcome to fresh air. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for playing me so so much good cowboy music on your show set on Saturday nights on satellite radio so let's start with a song and since gene autry was the first popular singing cowboy in the movies and since I love his singing let's start there and we'll start with a song that was that was a really corny song but I love it so much now. I I love this recording so much. It's gene autry back in the saddle again. So what's this. What's the importance of this song historically? Why do you love it well. I love it because because partly because friend of mine wrote it Ray Whitley who is a one of the singing cowboys that follow gene into the movies why the guy who wrote back in I satellite yes. It was a great story. You know the story now. they called him up early one morning and said they need another song for the the for the movie he was doing which was a George O'Brien movie. He was the sidekick kind of and he jumped up and said to his wife well honey. I'm back in the saddle again Dan. She said well there. You get your title. Ham wrote it on the way to studio. That's a great idea yeah so so tell me why you love Assan besides knowing the songwriter well it. you know it's very evocative of the west of of a lot of western music was very escapist and came to the flower fruition in the depression era and I think songs like back in the saddle just reminded minded people of being free and free of mortgage and debt then depression and unemployment just out there in out there in the West to answering to nobody but your own conscience and roaming the West. That's why I love tumbling tumbleweeds because it's a lonely but free I'll be found drifting along along with the tumbling tumbleweeds and back in the saddle as much the same message. We talk about it musically too. Well got a nice Yodel. Oh and voice is so great and they're such a kind of like the band has such kind of lilting swing to it and gene arteries records from the thirties are a a little more stiff but by the time he started re getting a really nice little band in the forties. those records are just lovely. He he had voice was just friendly you know he just was you felt comfortable listening to him. He was a marvelous communicator in song so here's gene autry back in the saddle again. I'm back in side again. We're up friend is a friend where the LONGHORN TAP on all age we I'm back in Seidel and and the rain's once more mild forty where oh you sleep every night. Law is right back in the saddle again SDN arteries according back in the saddle again from which film well he he recorded it several times that was his Columbia recording it nineteen forty-six but he had a head recorded at earlier in the thirties and he made a film of that title as well okay so Doug Green is an expert on cowboy songs also sings them with his band riders in the sky. So what are singing cowboys fit in in the history of American music well. It's interesting. The West has always been a fascination of Americans and Western an and has always been associated singing as always been associated with cowboys for whatever reason when sound came to films there had been cowboy songs recorded on record as early as nineteen twenty five but when sound came to the movies in Nineteen Twenty twenty nine the actually the first sound Western had singing in it it was in old Arizona and Warner Baxter saying in it and so the end it won an Oscar so is the first sound western was a singing cowboy western and people associated songs with cowboys and with the West and the romance of the West The wide open spaces and people like Bob Nolan Tim Spencer with the sons of the pioneers began writing songs that were not not about the day to day life the cowboy and round ups and branding and instead we're about the wide open spaces and the beauty of nature and the outdoors doors and the the free life and fresh air of the cowboy will you mentioned sense of the pioneers where Rogers was for a while with the sons ends of the pioneers and then he replaced gene autry in the movies had been some movies I think as the bad guy and some of them in fact right yes he was so since Roy Rogers was also a very famous singing cowboy and since he signed with sons of the pioneers. Let's Kinda combine them and have a Roy Rogers Song with with sons of the pioneers that Roy Rogers singing lead on this and this is blue shadows on the trail.
