Take Me Back to Old Montana

This is a verse that was on an antique postcard my cousin had.  It had a drawing of a cowgirl on it also.  Not specifically “Great Falls” related, but very appropriate here I think.

 

Take me back to old Montana

Where there’s plenty of room and air

Where there’s cottonwood an’ pine trees

Bitter root and prickly pear

Where there ain’t no pomp nor glitter

Where a shilling’s called a “bit”

Where at night the magpies twitter

Where the Indian fights were fit.

Take me back where the sage is plenty,

Where there’s rattlesnakes and ticks;

Where a stack of “whites” costs twenty,

Where they don’t sell gilded bricks.
