"Chant of the Wanderer" as written by and Bob Nolan....
Take a look at the skies where the whippoorwill trills


Take a look at the falls and the rippling rills
And the mountain so high where the cataract spills


Hear the wanderlust calls of the whispering hills
The rippling rills, the cataract spills, the whippoorwill trills


The rippling rills, the cataract spills, the whippoorwill trills
The rippling rills, the cataract spills, the whippoorwill trills





Let me live on the range where the tumbleweeds grow

Let the silver sands change where the prairie winds blow

Let the wanderers sing where the wanderers go

Let the melody ring for it's happy I know

The wanderers go, the prairie winds blow, the tumbleweeds grow




The wanderers go, the prairie winds blow, the tumbleweeds grow
The wanderers go, the prairie winds blow, the tumbleweeds grow



Let me follow the trail where the buffalo roam
Let a silver cloud sail where the setting sun shone



Let the local wolf wail in a broken-heart tone
Let it storm, let it gale, still the prairie's my home

The broken-heart tone, the setting sun shone, the buffalo roam



The broken-heart tone, the setting sun shone, the buffalo roam

The rippling rills, the cataract spills, the whippoorwill trills
The wanderers go, the prairie winds blow, the tumbleweeds grow



The broken-heart tone, the setting sun shone, the buffalo roam


The prairie's my home!
