Home on The Range

source was poem by Dr. Brewster Higley (1876)
original lyrics by Daniel E. Kelley (late 1870's or 1880's), with several major variants


(see footnotes for Cowboy Commandments by Gene Autry)

Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Home, home on the Range;
Where the deer and the antelope play;
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Where the air is so pure and the zephyrs so free
And the breezes so balmy and light
That I would not exchange my home on the range
For all of the cities so bright

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

How often at night when the heavens are bright
With the light of the glittering stars
I stand there amazed and I ask as I gaze
Does their glory exceed that of ours?

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

....speaking of Gene Autry,
in his quintessential leading by example,
during his Radio and TV years from 1940 to 1956, Gene Autry created the

Cowboy Code

or

Cowboy Commandments


in response to his young radio listeners aspiring to emulate him.
Under his code, the Cowboy must:
1. Never shoot first, hit a smaller man or take unfair advantage;
2. Never go back on his word or a trust confided in him;
3. Always tell the truth;
4. Be gentle with children, the elderly and animals;
5. Not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas;
6. Help people in distress;
7. Be a good worker;
8. Keep himself clean in thought, speech, action and personal habits;
9. Respect women, parents and his nation's laws;
10. Be a patriot.
