Theme from “High Noon”

This is my instrumental cover of the theme from “High Noon” – “Do Not Forsake Me”.

It was published in 1952, with music by Dimitri Tiomkin and lyrics by Ned Washington.

It is the theme song of the classic western movie “High Noon” (and titled onscreen as such in the film’s opening credits as sung by Tex Ritter), with its tune repeated throughout the film. It was awarded the 1952 Academy Award for Best Original Song.

A group called the “Venturas” (which featured Bobby Fuller) released a version as a “b-side” called “High Noon Rumble” in 1961. The Shadows recorded a version on their 1982 album “Life in the Jungle”.

I play the lead part on my Baritone guitar.
