  • Country song about nostalgia for the (supposed) "good old days," when movies were "good, clean fun" that you could watch w/ your entire family. References Tex Ritter and Walt Disney as paragons of such virtue, as well as the cowboy hero in the song's title. (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Everybody knows when you go to the show
    You can't take the kids along
    You've gotta read the paper
    And know the code 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 train 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
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
