General Store Unknown

The Drifter rides up to a country store to buy a few supplies for his travel and finds a couple of cowboys playing checkers while another is trying unsuccessfully to tune his guitar. The Drifter offers to tune the instrument and soon the shopkeeper, cowboys and the newcomer are swapping tunes.
1965 Ghost Town
To escape the wind and dust blowing in the street, The Drifter enters a ghost town’s hotel and discovers that the building isn’t as abandoned as he thought when an old codger pokes a shotgun against his back. Through good humor and song, The Drifter disarms the desert rat and soon the pair are singing harmony on some familiar tunes.
1965 The Saloon
When the promised musical entertainment fails to show up at Archie’s saloon, the bartender begs The Drifter to sing a few songs to keep the unruly crowd at bay and earn a hot meal. While the young singer tickles the ivories, a beautiful saloon girl tries to convince him to take her on his travels.
1965 Trappers Cabin
On a very cold winter’s night, The Drifter loses the main trail, but fortunately stumbles upon a trapper’s cabin before coming to harm. The trapper is wary of strangers, but The Drifter soon charms the old man with songs and stories from the outside world. The old timer pulls out his banjo and contributes a song or two to the evening’s proceedings.
The Drifter enters the camp of a group of cowboys driving cattle near Laredo, Texas requesting only conversation and coffee. While Quinine, the cook, rustles him some grub, The Drifter playfully kicks the boot of a cowpoke called “Gin” snoozing by the fire and discovers its owner is a feisty cowgirl who doesn’t like to be kicked and doesn’t like her real name, “Virginia”. To make amends, The Drifter sings a number of songs with the rest of the cowhands joining in.
