If you’re in need of a smile, or a calming song, we’ve got just the thing for you. In a scene from the 1959 western classic “Rio Bravo,” Dean Martin relaxes on a couch while crooning a campfire classic, “My Rifle, My Pony and Me.” Meanwhile, Ricky Nelson provides the guitar and accompanying vocals, while Walter Brennan joins in on the harmonica. The performance is so sincere and serene that it even makes the Duke himself, John Wayne, crack a smile. Check it out below, and if you’re looking for more, see this special performance from a 1970 John Wayne TV Special.
