Statler Brothers salute westerns
Q: We were watching some old westerns on TV. A song I heard had lyrics that went something like this: "Whatever happened to Randolph Scott riding the trail alone?" Where did it come from?
A: You are remembering the Statler Brothers hit "Whatever Happened to Randolph Scott." It was a tribute to western-movie stars and a complaint about the state of modern movies. Part of the chorus goes: "Whatever happened to Randolph Scott/Ridin' the trail alone/Whatever happened to Gene and Tex/And Roy and Rex, the Durango kid/Oh, whatever happened to Randolph Scott/His horse, plain as can be/Whatever happened to Randolph Scott/Has happened to the best of me."
