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
