About the Song
"Along Came Jones" is a comedic song originally recorded by The Coasters, but covered by many other groups and individuals. Told from the perspective of a person who decides to watch television, the song tells of the interaction between a gunslinger stock villain, "Salty Sam," and a ranch-owning woman, "Sweet Sue," on an unnamed television show. Jerome "Jerry" Leiber (born April 25, 1933) and Mike Stoller (born March 13, 1933) are among the most influential American songwriters and music producers in post-World War II popular music. Their first successes were as the writers of such crossover hit songs as "Hound Dog" and "Kansas City." Later in the 1950s, particularly through their work with The Coasters, they created a string of ground-breaking hits that are some of the most entertaining in rock and roll, by using the humorous vernacular of the teenagers sung in a style that was openly.    Download this sheet!

Their first successes were as the writers of such crossover hit songs as "Hound Dog" and "Kansas City." Later in the 1950s, particularly through their work with The Coasters, they created a string of ground-breaking hits that are some of the most entertaining in rock and roll, by using the humorous vernacular of the teenagers sung in a style that was openly theatrical rather than personal, songs that include "Young Blood," "Searchin'," and "Yakety Yak."[1] They were the first to surround black music with elaborate production values, enhancing its emotional power with The Drifters in "There Goes My Baby" and influencing Phil Spector who worked with them on recordings of The Drifters and Ben E. King. Leiber and Stoller went into the record business and, focusing on the "girl group" sound, released some of the greatest classics of the Brill Building period.[2] They wrote hits including "Love Me," "Loving You," "Don't," and "Jailhouse Rock," among others for Elvis.
