'... at the end of my ride'

Heard in the wee, small hours that one of my all-time favorite singers, Frankie Laine, has died at age 93. Most of you younger readers might not know Laine, unless you’ve heard these memorable lyrics from the old TV series “Rawhide:”

“Rain and wind and weather,
Hell-bent for leather.
Wishin' my gal was by my side.
All the things I'm missin',
Good vittles, love, and kissin',
Are waiting at the end of my ride.”

My favorite Frankie Laine album is Torchin’ and nobody could sing a torch song better.

Saddle up, Frankie, those “Ghost Riders in the Sky” are waiting.
