Somebody Else Is Taking My Place
from Call of the Canyon (1942)

Singing Cowboy Gene Autry and Sons of the Pioneers sing "Somebody Else is Taking My Place" around the campfire in the Republic Pictures film Call of the Canyon (1942). That's Frog Millhouse (Smiley Burnette) and his little brother Tadpole (Joseph Strauch, Jr.) clowning around in the background.

Sons of the Pioneers are in three Gene Autry films The Big Show (1936), The Old Corral (1936) and Call of the Canyon (1942). Roy Rogers – the singing cowboy most associated with Sons of the Pioneers – is part of the singing group in the 1936 films but not in Call of the Canyon.
