    I don't know if it has a specific name. It is not shown on the movie (which was made for TV) credits. I can tell you the music composer was a guy named Jerrold Immel. He also wrote the theme song for Dallas.

    Are you looking for the nice waltz tune that plays for about a minute at the start of the song?

    Okay, here is what I did:
    I found the movie on youtube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzAKitoELSw
    The theme song (waltz) plays for only about 1 minute as the movie starts.
    It is in the key of G# (or Ab, which is the same thing) but the recording is a tiny bit off pitch.
    I made an mp3 of the 1 minute the waltz plays and then edited it so it repeats several times and is now about 3:54 long. I adjusted the pitch so it sounds a little better. It came out not too bad if I do say so myself. I will send you the mp3.

    The chord pattern (which you just keep repeating) is:

    Capo 1st fret

    [G]/// /// [C]/// /// [D]/// /// [G]/// [D]///
    [G]/// /// [C]/// /// [A]/// /// [D]/// [D7]///
    [G]/// /// [C]/// /// [D]/// /// [G]/// [D7]///
    [G]/// /// [C]/// /// [G]/// [D]///

    I don't think it has a "specific" name. It was written, as the musical score for the TV movie, by the same guy who wrote the theme song for the TV show Dallas. That one does not have a specific name. It is just called the "theme song from Dallas".
    Based on that, I would assume the one from "The Shadow Riders" could be called "theme song from The Shadow Riders".
    Also, based on your first post, perhaps you could name it "The Bugging Me To Death Waltz", lol.
