Home on the Range is a traditional American folk song, written sometime before 1873 by Dr. Brewster Higley of Kansas.

Home on the Range
Traditional; additional lyrics by Roland Hess

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.

chorus: 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.

Oh home me a give, where the fullabo live,
Where the ant and the playalope deer,
Where heard is the word that has
Seldom discouraged the clouds,
'Cause the skies are all clear.

Range, range on the home,
Where the ant and the playalope deer,
Where heard is the word that has
Seldom discouraged the clouds,
'Cause the skies are all clear.

Oh give me a land where the bright diamond sand
Flows leisurely down the stream;
There the graceful, white swan goes gliding along
Like a maid in a heavenly dream.

chorus 

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
