Subject: ADD: There's Nobody Home On the Range Anymore

Somebody e-mailed to ask for help finding sheet music for "There's Nobody Home on the Range Anymore." I found a YouTube recording of Jerry Dycke's 1988 performance, and I found lyrics at one of "those" Websites. Can somebody direct him to sheet music?

THERE'S NOBODY HOME ON THE RANGE ANYMORE
(Written by Ed Penney and Rob Parsons)

The old man who dreamed of the fortunes he'd seek
Lives in a room where you pay by the week
His hands are all battered and his pony's gone lame
And his bones always ache when the sky looks like rain

Well, he dreams of the old days when bronc bustin' paid
And the wide open spaces where buffalo played
Deep in his memory wild horses ride on
But he knows the good times have all come and gone

There's nobody home on the range anymore
They closed down the bunkhouse and padlocked the door
Now there's oilwells and motels and folks by the score
But there's nobody home on the range anymore


Now the eagle's stoped flyin' the night wind is still
And the last coyote's howlin' on some lonely hill
The old man is longin' to lay all down
In his final box canyon the poor side of town

Cause he knows his last mountain is two flights of stairs
And his saddle's turned into an old rocking chair
Mornings he wakes up and wonders what for
Cause there's nobody home on the range anymore

There's nobody home on the range anymore
They closed down the bunkhouse and padlocked the door
Now there's oilwells and motels and folks by the score
But there's nobody home on the range anymore
