Remembering Happy Trails

Dale wrote Happy Trails in 1950 while preparing for a radio show. She decided (quite correctly) that Roy needed a theme song and since he usually signed his autographs with Happy Trails, Roy Rogers the title came easily enough.

She scribbled the lyrics down on the back of an envelope and with only forty minutes before showtime she taught the medley to Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers. That night Roy had a new theme song that would become meshed with his name and image. Happy Trails To You became part of the American lexicon. Over the years Roy and Dale would record more than 400 songs together, the last in 1985 called 'Many Happy Trails'.

When Roy died in 1998 Dale had this to say: "What a blessing to have shared my life together with him for almost 51 years," she said. "To say I will miss him is a gross understatement. He was truly the king of the cowboys in my life."
