Verses:
Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play.
Where never is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
 
Where the air is so pure, the zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and light.
That I would not exchange my home on the range.
For all the cities so bright.
 
Chorus:
Home, home on the range,
Where the deer and the antelope play.
Where never is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
