Two featuring Fess Parker:

 

The Ballad of Davy Crockett - Tennessee Ernie Ford (and recorded first by Fess Parker, himself).

The Ballad of Daniel Boone -  Vera Matson (with her husband, Ken Darby) and Lionel Newman. And, again, recorded by Fess Parker, near as I can tell.

Speaking of Saint Dominic, how about Van Morrison's "Saint Dominic's Preview"?

Wow! Did not know about this - I will have to rack my brain. Since she had a birthday this week, how about the hit single by Jeanne-Paule Marie "Jeannine" Deckers, better known as Sœur Sourire and often credited as The Singing Nun in English-speaking countries: "Dominique". Her song about the founder of her order, Saint Dominic?
