Tumbling Tumbleweeds - MIDI (No Voices)
Tumbling Tumbleweeds - MP3 (Voices)
Written and made famous by "The Sons of the Pioneers".
Possibly the greatest Western Song ever written!!
Be sure to buy their Albums and get this and other great Songs!!
"See them tumbling down. Pledging their love to the ground!
Lonely, but free, I'll be found. Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.....
Deep in my heart is a song. Here on the range I belong....."
Not Shakespeare, but Happy, Content, Grateful, Blessed, and Free.
The Sons of the Pioneers came to our Town in Idaho and performed when
I was a Kid. Across the street from our House!!
This song stuck with me like glue.
It resembles aSOLEMN HYMN.
It's like a Hymn or an Ode to NATURE, BEAUTY, FREEDOM, and
Not just some "Cowboy Song".
The lyrics certainly aren't "Deep" or complicated - and they don't need to be.
That might have hurt it - twisted it in some unnecessary way.
But the music has aDEEP LONGING that's Fundamental and
Its sound is Memorable andHAUNTING.
And it contains a unique and refreshingDIRECT CLARITY
and CLEAR VISION.
It produces the feeling of ETERNAL TRUTH.
And a SUNSET.
And being shown some kind of INEVITABILITY and FACTUALNESS.
It feels like a wide, warm, gentle, Pure Ambience of invisible Light or Truth from
Heaven, soaking into me.
The Scales have fallen from our Eyes, and we SEE and UNDERSTAND!!
** A Hymn with Deep Longing, Eternal Truth, Direct Clarity, Clear Vision,
Purity, Sunset, Inevitability, Factualness, Perfection, Pure Ambience,
Humility, and a Sense of a Supernatural Presence or a Supernatural
It's like an unexpected Gift from Heaven.
What inspired this Unique Song??
This WESTERN SOLEMN HYMN OF PURE DIRECT CLARITY??
This Ode to Truth and the West, Nature, Beauty, Freedom, and Independence??
This somewhat SAD and HUMBLE realization that this Cowboy is just a Little
Creature on the Great Vista of the Western Plain stretching before him, observing
the Work of someone FAR GREATER than himself??
Pretty Amazing for a Western/Cowboy Song!!!
Pure and Wonderful Western Americana!!
There's nothing else like it that I know of.
(And by the way, I say this as a Mozart Nut!!
I think Mozart would have been impressed!! He used Music to Express his
FEELINGS, and the Ambience of a Scene (and to bring Characters to Life in his
Mature Operas like Don Giovanni) - not just to write "Pretty Music".
This Music Expertly expresses Feelings and Depicts a Scene.
I think Mozart would be Impressed and Humbled!!
He was a Deep Thinker and a Good, Kind Man, always helping Friends in Need -
an Austrian with an American outlook, who was thinking of moving to Britain or
America - not the Adolescent Jerk with the High-Pitched Giggle depicted in the
Movie Amadeus, with Mozart's Character partly Written or Directed by some
West-smashing Communist !!
The Good, Kind, Deep-Thinking, Loving, Caring, Joyful, Brilliant Mozart would
have sat up and paid attention to THIS Music!!! And LIKED it!!!)
