    not exchange my home on the rangeFor all of the
    cities so brightHome, home on the rangeWhere
    the deer and the antelope playWhere seldom is
    heard a discouraging wordAnd the skies are not
    cloudy all dayOh, I love those wild flow'rs in
    this dear land of oursThe curlew, I love to hear
    screamAnd I love the white rocks and the
    antelope flocksThat graze on the mountaintops
    greenHome, home on the rangeWhere the deer and
    the antelope playWhere seldom is heard a
    discouraging wordAnd the skies are not cloudy
    all day

    the deer and the antelope playWhere seldom is
    heard a discouraging wordAnd the skies are not
    cloudy all dayHome, home on the rangeWhere the
    deer and the antelope playWhere seldom is heard
    a discouraging wordAnd the skies are not cloudy
    all dayHow often at night when the heavens are
    brightWith the light from the glittering
