1. My home’s in Montana, I wear a bandanna,
My spurs are of silver, my pony is gray.
Whatever the weather, we travel together,
With foot in the stirrup, I’ll gallop all day.
2. We’re up with the sun, ’cause there’s work to be done,
In the wide open spaces, that’s where we would be.
Out here in the West is the life we love best,
Montana is home for my pony and me.
3. When far from the ranches, I chop the pine branches
To heap on the campfire as daylight grows pale,
When I have partaken of beans and of bacon,
I whistle a cheery old song of the trail.
