He was doing both in the PBS concert (with the South Dakota Symphony), if memory serves. That was in 2001.

So we can see him use those "extras" at least that far back.

That is a good question. We had a similar question once about... when did Glen start to add "and I'm doing fine" at the end of Wichita Lineman. In 1990, during the Doncaster (Live at the Dome) concert he still used "got a wichita woman/lady on his mind" at the end of the song. A few years later, during the Branson years, he had switched to "and I'm doing fine".

But I have no idea when he started adding "and cowgirls!!!" to Rhinestone Cowboy. Was it also during his time in Branson? Or earlier?

Any idea when Glen incorporated that into his routine? I wonder what female influence suggested it.

Exactly Randy. One would have expected that she would have done the "and cowgirls!" part at the end. Oh well...

Yes it is excellent Dee! I watch an oldie yt channel often called smurftools and he has video and audio editied. Good example would be the song "Precious and Few" ... Other channels it's not nearly as clear.

Great ear, Dee. It seems Glen song doctored just about every song he ever sang. Very interesting topic!

Here ya go, Randy! I know you'll like this better quality version of Glen singing with his brother, Shorty.
(From the When the Cowboy Sings channel on YT, which offers lots of great classic country music, doesn't it?)

This Cowboy channel also uploaded Marty Robbins' lyrics to post in the video description.
I was surprised at how much Glen Campbell (I assume) "song doctored" the Robbins' lyrics and for the better (imho).
For example, Glen must have changed "shack" to "home" and "whip me" to "scold me". I posted the lyrics here as Glen and Shorty sing the lines in this performance. :)



The childhood memories I treasure the most I suppose
Were the Saturday afternoons spent at the town picture show
I work all day long in the fields but at night I would dream
That I would see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen

Saturday mornings I'd walk 5 miles or more
And Twelve o'clock noon found me first one in line at the door
I'd worked all week long but today I fulfill my dreams
And I'd see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

The man in the white cowboy hat is a hero to me
He was and he is now, and I guess he always will be
Time takes away many things but it can't take a dream
And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

(guitar solo)

Oft as a child from our home in the country I'd roam
And my daddy would scold me 'cause I'd never be around home
Ah but mom understood me cause she'd always smile when I'd say,
Gene Autry and I had been rounding up outlaws all day

The man in the white cowboy hat is a hero to me
He was then, he is now, and I guess he always will be
Time takes away many things but it can't take a dream
And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen

And I see Gene Autry go ridin' across the big screen.

-by Marty Robbins (as sung by Glen Campbell and Shorty Campbell)
