When he was a young man, Gene received an offer from a professional baseball team to become a player. Gene turned down the offer because it would have meant a fifty-dollar-a-month pay cut from his telegrapher's job.

Moonlight on the Ranch House
from Home on the Prairie (1939)

What's a singing cowboy to do when he runs out of small talk with a pretty gal? Why he sings "Moonlight on the Ranch House" of course! June Storey joins Gene in a verse of this romantic number from the Republic Pictures film Home on the Prairie (1939).
