Our Tribute To
Dale Evans "Queen of the West"

   
October 31st, 1912 - February 7th, 2001

Happy Trails
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.

Happy trails to you until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you 'till we meet again.

Happy trails to you until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you 'till we meet again.

"Happy Trails" Lyrics Copyright Paramount-Roy Rogers Music Co., Inc.

"Happy Trails" was written by Dale Evans in 1950, while preparing for a radio show. Dale decided Roy needed a theme song and since he penned all his autographs with "Trails of Happiness" or "Happy Trails, Roy Rogers", the title came easily.

Scribbling on an envelope, Dale wrote the famous lyrics and taught the melody to Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers forty minutes before show time.

What came across the radio that night gave America's favorite singing cowboy a theme song and a nation a lifetime of inspiration.

She was born Frances Smith in Uvalde, Texas on October 31, 1912. She spent her teen years in Arkansas and married at sixteen.

Dale Evans married Roy Rogers in 1947, and the couple often appeared together on the big screen. Dale's film credits include "Orchestra Wives" (1942), "Swing Your Partner" (1943), "Casanova In Burlesque" (1944), "Utah" (1945), "Bells Of Rosarita" (1945), "My Pal Trigger" (1946), "Apache Pass" (1947), "Slippy McGee" (1948), "Susanna Pass" (1949), "Twilight In The Sierras" (1950), and "Pals Of The Golden West" (1951).

More recently, Dale's work in music and television had been in the gospel vein, appearing on Public TV with Roy Rogers in variety and Christian shows. Here she continued to gather fans with her sunny disposition and spirit, and her positive messages of faith, goodwill, and humility. Dale Evans wrote many inspirational books as well.
