I dont own the rights to this song. Roy Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers: Home On The Range. Here's a song that never tires. Its lyrics were written by Brewster Higley with music by Daniel Kelley. Folk-song collector Alan Lomax noted that it was first printed in 1911, but for 20 years it attracted practically no attention. Though it never hit the country charts, it has been recorded by country and western artists. It is the official state song of Kansas and in 2004 was the title of a new Disney animated feature.
