A Long Way From Montana 
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by R.W. Hampton, Phil Martin, Red Steagall
[3/4 time]

C Em F
A long way it is from Montana
C D7 G7
To west Texas whether by hoof or by rail
C Em F
A long way it is from Alzada
C Am G7 C
To innocence lost somewhere out on the trail

Em F
And my heart is lonesome and longin'
C D7 G7
My comrades are gone on the first morning train
C Em F
And my heart hears a boyhood hymn callin'
C Am G7 C
From a church down the valley comes this old refrain

F C
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Am D7 G7
Calling for you and for me
C F C
See on the portals He's waiting and watching
Am G7 C
Watching for you and for me

Em F
Too many autumns I've watched 'em
C D7 G7
Board trains with their plunder all headed for home
C Em F
And too many autumns I've stayed here
C Am G7 C
To snap out the new ones fore winter comes on

Em F
And I wonder who's waiting for them
C D7 G7
A sweetheart or lover or young wife with babe
C Em F
But I know who's waiting for me
C G7 C
A mother and father who's hair has turned grey

G7 C
Come home come home
G7 D7 G7
A wandering cowboy come home
C F C
Earnestly tenderly I hear them calling
G7 C
My son it's time to come home

Em F
I've lingered long in this country
C D7 G7
From high thunder basin to where rim lands start
C Em F
I've lingered too long a sinner
C Am G7 C
It's time that I pack up and follow my heart

Em F
A long way it is from Alzada
C D7 G7
To a little sod house on the west Texas plains
C Em F
A long way it is from Montana
C F G7 C
But I'm going home on the next southbound train
Em F C
A long way it is from Montana
