Who was that mask man?

Was all that was said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

Let’s ride, Tonto!

Was what he said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

Call him Kemosabe!

That’s what Tonto said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

This mask is law and order

That’s what he said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

They beat up Tonto!

That’s what he said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

Hi Ho Silver!

He rode off and said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

 

He left this silver bullet!

That’s what they said

After the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

 

 

I want to watch it again!

That’s what I said

When the Lone Ranger

Shot the bad guys dead

You have taken me back. I can not remember, did he ever kill anyone? Or did he just shoot their guns out of their hands? Funny that I can't remember. Nice ode to that awesome team.

Now you got me going...surely he must have tripped up and plugged someone but maybe they just showed him shooting the gun and the bad guy was behind the rocks doing the dying. Could it be that we were "politically correct" way back then? WB

Wayne likewise your poem brought back great memories of 'cowboys' growing up. I think all you saw was puffs of smoke in my memory.

I loved watching The Lone Ranger when I was a boy and his beautiful white horse and Tonto as his side kick. I tend to observe as Charlie had done here, the question of actually ever shooting anyone other than a gun from another cowboys hand. I wonder if the Lone Ranger's silver bullets gave some director the idea of using them to kill werewolves in the future? The cowboy flicks back then were exciting and fun to watch, thanks for the memories Wayne.

@saddlerider1...Yes, Ken, I too watched a lot of those shows. I really do not remember the Lone Ranger killing anyone, he shot their guns out of their hand, beat them up, and then they left town. Did you ever notice that the Lone Ranger always sent Tonto into town to scout things out and the bad guys always ended up beating Tonto up or the sheriff would throw him in jail? WB

LOL everyone is wondering now about this subject. I must do some research now and get back to you on this very important subject. Remember him always in disguise and never showing us his face? That always pissed me off. I wanted to see him. brb

ok, I found a site that says he never killed:

Yes it seems Tonto was his front man? lol..after all he was the Scout kinda like Adam from Bonanza, or no I got that wrong wasn't he the clean up brother, when Little Joe needed extra muscle.hah...The masked man was slick with the blue ensemble, black Kato mask, black kerchief and the silver bullets, hard to beat that. He had to be the good guy, couldn't blemish those black leather gloves with too much blood. He was a cool cat for sure. The Lone Ranger Rides Again.

The Lone Ranger was a personal favorite of mine as a kid. God bless Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels!

All the Best,

Hey WB congratulations on reaching your 100 Followers, but now I see 101...keep on a hubbing and followers will surely click the follow button. You are a very good writer and poet, look forward to seeing 200 followers in the near future.

Thanks Ken...it's been slow going getting to 100 but I tried to do it the old-fashion way and earn it! I want to have fans that are really "Fans" and I in turn want to be the same type of fan myself. Then, the feedback starts to have some real meaning and motivation. You keep writing those good poems and you will see 200 long before me! I hope you do! Thanks. WB

I LOVED the Lone Ranger, but wonder why Tonto didn't shoot?

Wayne, The Ranger was a favorite of my crowd in the Bronx. A couple of brothers came downstairs after every episode, with a 3x5 card stating every assignment the Ranger gave Tonto. There was always a big rock near every town.

Clayton Moore played the Ranger, and was very proud that his character NEVER killed anyone. He grew up in Chicago.

Many of the cowboys came from the midwest. Ex: Roy Rogers- Cincinatti. John Wayne- Iowa.

Jay Silverheels (a real Indian)who played Tonto, is the son of an Indian Chief. Their tribe comes from the Toronto area.
