Everybody knows when you go to the show,
You can’t take the kids along.
You’ve gotta read the paper and know the codes
Of G, PG and R and X.
And you gotta know what the movie’s about
Before you even go.
Tex Ritter’s gone and Disney’s dead
And the screen is filled with sex.

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 could be?
Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the best of me.

Everybody’s tryin’ to make a comment
About our doubts and fears.
True Grit’s the only movie I’ve really
Understood in years
You gotta take your analyst along
To see if it’s fit to see.
Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the industry.

Whatever happened to Johnny Mack Brown
And Alan Rocky Lane?
Whatever happened to Lash LaRue?
I’d love to see them again.
Whatever happened to Smiley Burnette,
Tim Holt, and Gene Autry?
Whatever happened to all of these
Has happened to the best of me.
Whatever happened to Randolph Scott
Has happened to the industry.

— Statler Bros, 1973
