What songs embody that 'spooky' country & western feel - twang, tremolo, reverb, minor chords, dark vocals, preferably from the 1930s-1950s?

I'm thinking of the American West and Southwest around the mid 20th century - night time scenes of dusty roads and loneliness. I've heard songs like this all my life, but have very few points of reference. Google is pointing me to stuff like Alan Jackson :/
The lesser known the better, but interested in any artists & songs you'd recommend... thanks!
