His mother took him to her breast and (A)softly she did (D)sing
chorus:(G)Oh, (A)Montana, (D)give this child a (D7)home
Give him the (G)love of a good (A)family and a (D)woman

Give him the (D)wild wind for a brother and the (A)wild

Ridin' a (D)storm across the mountains and in (G)achin' in his
Said he came to turn the pages and to (A)make a brand new (D)start
Now he never told the story of the (G)time that he was (D)gone
Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a (A)john
There was (D)something in the city that he (G)said he couldn't
There was something in the country that he (A)said he couldn't
(D) (G) (A) (D)
(D)Now some say he was crazy and (G)some are glad he's (D)gone
(D)But some of us will miss him and we'll try to carry (A)on

Giving a voice to the wilderness and the (A)land that he lived
