                                            C             G
He was born in the Bitteroot Valley in the early morning rain
Wild geese over the water, heading north and home again
            G                                      C                 G
Bringin' a warm wind from the south, bringin' the first taste of the spring
                                       D                G   
His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing:
                 C        D    G
   CHORUS:  Oh, Montana, give this child a home
                      C              D            G
   Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
                    C           D                 G           C
   Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
                      G                               D             G
   Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies
                                    C                G
His mother died that summer and he never learned to cry
He never knew his father and he never did ask why
    G                                 C            G
He never knew the answers that would make an easy way
                                              D             G
But he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way
                                         C              G
His mother's brother took him in to his family and his home
Gave him a hand that he could lean on and a strength to call his own
         G                             C                  G 
And he learned to be a farmer and he learned to love the land
                                           D                  G
And he learned to read the seasons and he learned to make a stand

       G                             C             G
On the eve of his 21st birthday, he set out on his own
He was 30 years and runnin' when he found his way back home
           G                                C             G
Ridin' a storm across the mountains and an achin' in his heart
                                       D                 G
Said he came to turn the pages and to make a brand new start
                                    C                G
Now he never told the story of the time that he was gone
Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a john
           G                             C                 G
There was something in the city that he said he couldn't breathe
                                            D                G
There was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave

     G                                   C        G
Now some say he was crazy and some are glad he's gone
But some of us will miss him and we'll try to carry on
          G                             C            G
Giving a voice to the forest, giving a voice to the dawn
                                          D                 G
Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on
