Gene Autry My Hero
Written and Recorded by Marty Robbins
A/A time 
C 
The childhood memories I treasure the most I  
F 
suppose
 
Are the  
G7 
Saturday afternoons spent at the town picture  
C 
show
 
I worked all day long in the fields but at night I would  
F 
dream
 
Of  
G7 
seeing Gene Autry go riding across the big  
C 
screen
 
Saturday mornings I'd walk twenty miles or  
F 
more
G7 
Twelve o'clock noon found the first one in line at the  
C 
door
 
Cause all week I'd work but today I would fulfill my  
F 
dream
 
And  
G7 
I'd see Gene Autry go riding across the big  
C 
screen
 
The  
F 
man in the white cowboy hat was a hero to  
C 
me
 
He was then he is now and I guess he always will  
G7 
be
 
Time  
C 
takes away many things but it can't take a  
F 
dream
 
And I  
G7 
can still see him go riding across the big  
C 
screen
 
When as a kid from our shack on the desert I'd  
F 
roam
 
My  
G7 
daddy would whip me cause I'd never be around  
C 
home
 
But mom understood me I know cause she'd smile when I'd  
F 
say
 
Gene  
G7 
Autry and I had been rounding up outlaws all  
C 
day
 
The  
F 
man in the white cowboy hat was a hero to  
C 
me
 
He was then he is now and I guess he always will  
G7 
be
 
And  
C 
every so often I go back in time and I  
F 
dream
 
And  
G7 
I see Gene Autry go riding across the big  
C 
screen
 
And  
G7 
I see Gene Autry go riding across the big  
C 
screen

Who is Marty Robbins?
- Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 - December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist, and NASCAR racing driver. Robbins was one of the most popular and successful country and western singers for most of his nearly four-decade career, which spanned from the late 1940s to the early 1980s.
Born in Glendale, Arizona, Robbins taught himself guitar while serving in the United States Navy during World War II, and subsequently drew fame performing in clubs in and around his hometown. In 1956, he released his first No. 1 country song, "Singing the Blues" and one year later, released two more No. 1 hits, "A White Sport Coat" and "The Story of My Life". In 1959, Robbins released his signature song, "El Paso", for which he won the Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song began Robbins' association with western balladry, a style which would become a staple of his career. Later releases that drew critical acclaim include "Don't Worry", "Big Iron" and "Honkytonk Man", the last for which the 1982 Clint Eastwood film is named, and in which Robbins made his final appearance before death.
Over the course of his career, Robbins recorded more than 500 songs and 60 albums, and won two Grammy Awards, was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was named the 1960s Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music. Robbins was a commercial success in both the country and pop genres, and his songs were covered by many other famous artists, including Johnny Cash, the Grateful Dead and Elvis Presley. His music continues to have an influence in pop culture today, having recently appeared in several contemporary pop culture features, including the video game Fallout: New Vegas, and the series finale of AMC's Breaking Bad.
