Home on The Range


by Brewster Higley and Dan Kelly
O give me home where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

D - - /    / G - - /    / D - - /    / A - - /    /
D - - /    / G - - /    / D - - / A - - / D - - /    //

 C:	Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And skies are not cloudy all day

A - - /    / D - - /    / Bm - - / E - - / A - - /    /
D - - /    / G - - /    / D - - / A - - / D - - /    //

Where the air is so pure and the zephyrs so free
And the breezes so balmy and light
That I would not exchange my home on the range
For all of the cities so bright

 C:	Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And skies are not cloudy all day

How often at night when the heavens are bright
With the light of the glittering stars
I stand there amazed and I ask as I gaze
Does their glory exceed that of ours?

 C:	Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And skies are not cloudy all day
