Verses:
Oh give me a home where the buf -fa -lo roam,
Where the deer and the an -te -lope play.
Where nev -er is heard a dis -cour -ag -ing word,
And the skies are not cloud -y 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 an -te -lope play.
Where nev -er is heard a dis -cour -ag -ing word,
And the skies are not cloud -y all day.
