Song of the Week: “Blood on the Saddle” by Tex Ritter

by Douglas Cowie on 15 February 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Blood on the Saddle” by Tex Ritter:

I went for a walk in the snowy countryside with my friend Fabian the other weekend. Fabian knows more about music than most people, and at some point he asked me if I knew this song. When I said I didn’t he started singing it, and then told me Tex Ritter’s version was particularly good. As you can hear, it is (particularly good).
