A -  Twenty-Six TV Shows - Z

Cheyenne is an American western television series of 108 black-and-white episodes broadcast on ABC (American Broadcasting Company) from 1955 to 1963. The show was the first hour-long western, and in fact the first hour-long dramatic series of any kind, with continuing characters, to last more than one season. 

The show starred Clint Walker, a native of Illinois, as Cheyenne Bodie, a physically large cowboy wandering the American West

After the Civil war adventurer Cheyenne Bodie roamed the west looking for fights, women and bad guys to beat up. His job changed from episode to episode.

Cheyenne, Cheyenne where will you be camping tonight? 
Loney man, Cheyenne, will your heart stay free and light? 
Dream Cheyenne of a girl you may never love 
Move along, Cheyenne like the restless cloud up above. 

The wind that blows, that comes and goes, has been your only home. 
But will the while will one day see and you'll no longer roam.

Move along, Cheyenne the next pasture's always so green. 
Driftin' on, Cheyenne don't forget the things you have seen, 
And when you settle down where will it be Cheyenne.

I remember this one Gregg also great to hear the theme tune again.

I've never been a fan of westerns, so I haven't seen this one. I probably should give them a try, but I don't watch much TV as it is now.

I happen to have my aunt's treasured little golden book of Cheyenne in my closet! Funny! Hopping in from a-z

I remember the show, but I don't know if I ever watched it. Westerns back then were very good.

The Warner Brothers westerns were great shows with great theme songs!
