It was written by George Dunning and Ned Washington for the original 1957 film starring Glen Ford and Van Heflin. Frankie Laine made the song popular.
I sang 3:10 to Yuma at Sons of Orpheus’ Gala Spring Concert last Sunday. I have been singing it for many years now with Orpheus and it’s on my “Home in Arizona” CD as well as Orpheus’ CD, “Cowboy Classics.” If I do say so myself, it’s a knockout. Click the Play arrow above to listen.
I’ll be singing it at Orpheus’ Spring Concerts this week and next. Click here for concert info.
