Montana Melody


Written by Carleen Harvey and LeGrande Harvey

Adopted March 11, 1983



I long to be in the places that I see

in the pictures of my dreams

Where there’s mountains full of trees,

meadows carpeted in green

Silent, snow-fall, clear running streams.



Where the bear-grass blooms

In the spring-time of the year,

And the larch turn gold in the Fall

Where there’s deer, elk and antelope

Beaver, bears and birds and the yippin’

coyotes serenade them all.

CHORUS:
Yes, there’s no place like Montana,

the Big Sky country, my home.

A place to set my spirit free,

a Rocky Mountain melody,

These things are a part of me,

Montana, Montana, my home.



Charlie Russell clouds paint sunsets in the West,

in colors of red, blue and gold.

Snow-capped peaks reach endless to the sky,

and the grain-fields with gentle breezes flow.



There’s high mountain lakes, Missouri river breaks

and the open plains, where the buffalo used to roam.

It’s a cowboy song, it’s where Indians belong

God’s country, my home sweet home.



I had a dream, of how Heaven’s s’posed to be,

and when I die, that’s where I want to go.

Cause there’s mountains full of trees, meadows

carpeted in green, silent snowfall, clear running streams.
