He was born in the Bitterroot Valley in the early morning rain
Bringing a warm wind from the south
His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing
Oh Montana, give this child a home
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes

He never knew his father and he never did ask why
But he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way
His mother's brother took him in to family and his home
And he learned to be a farmer and he learned to love the land

Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies
On the eve of his 21st birthday he set out on his own
Riding a storm across the mountains and an aching in his heart

Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a John
And there was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave
Oh Montana, give this child a home
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes

But some of us miss him and we'll try to carry on
Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on
Oh Montana, give this child a home
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes

Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies
