Home on the Range
T: Dr. Brewster M. Higley

Volkslied van Kansas (U.S.A.)
Oh, give me a 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.
Home, home on the range Where the deer and the antelope play Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day.
How often at night where the heavens are bright With the light from the glittering stars Have I stood there amazed and I asked as I gazed If their glory exceeds that of ours.
Oh, give me a 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.
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 of the cities so bright.
