Marty Robbins' "El Paso"... starring Steve Martin!

I envision this "video" ( a skit Martin did on his show once) every time I hear "El Paso" from Marty Robbins. I saw it the first time it showed on TV, back in the ole days, before everybody could tape or Tivo any and every show. Well, apparently somebody did tape it, and has put it on Youtube, for the enjoyment of all anew. [big grin] I think my favorite bit is where Martin rides off atop an elephant as his steed, as Robbins sings "Out thru the backdoor of Rose's I ran, out where the horses were tiiiiiiii-iii-ied, I caught a good one, it looked like it could run, up on its back and away I did ride," followed by a few scenes later when Martin rides back, surrounded by chimpanzee bandidos on their own Shetland ponies. I don't know why it took my brain this long, but I finally realized that somebody was bound to have put the clip up on Youtube, so I just looked there today and found it!
