"Home on the Range"
       
  1. Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the dear and the antelope play;
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
 
    Chorus:  
    Home, home on the range,
Where the dear and the antelope play;
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
 
 
2.
Oh, give me some land where the bright diamond sand,
Flows leisurely down the stream;
Where the graceful white swan, goes gliding along,
Like a maid in a heavenly dream.
 
    Chorus  
  3. Where the air is so pure and the zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and bright;
That I would not exchange my home on the range,
For all of the cities so bright.
 
    Chorus  
  4. How often at night when the heavens are bright,
With the light of the glittering stars,
Have I stood there amazed and asked as I gazed,
If their glory exceeds that of ours?
 
    Chorus
