Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Home's in Montana
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My Home's in Montana
In my song book it shows that the Cowboy's Lament was written in 1876 as a traditional song but I don't have an author.It does lists 15 verse but not one of them has the line (My Home In Montana)so I believe My Home In Montana was written many years after the original came out and whoever is credited with writing just used many parts of the original song and called it My Home In Montana.I lived in Montana for over 20 years and never heard anyone sing this song
