Rawhide

Rawhide was an early TV Western and began on US television on the 9th January 1959  ... it starred a very young Clint Eastwood as Rowdy Yates . In this scene Clint sings ( yes sings  !! ) about the poor drover's life. The scene comes from 'Incident of the Hostages', the twenty-seventh episode of the series' fifth season. It first aired on April 19, 1963. Also in this scene: James Murdock (as Mushy), Leslie Wales (as Yellow Sky), Suzanne Cupito (as Winter Night) and Tony Haig (as Running Dog). The song also appeared on the album 'Rawhide's Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites' and was released on the B-side of the Eastwood single 'Cowboy Wedding Song'. 'Rowdy' was composed by Jerre Lee Turner. The title song of the show was also a big hit in Australia and overseas ...
