Home on the Range Introduction


Home on the Range is the state song of the American state of Kansas. Dr. Brewster M. Higley (1823–1911) originally wrote the words in a poem called "My Western Home" in the early 1870s in Smith County, Kansas.


Home on the Range is often performed in programs and concerts of American patriotic music, and is frequently used in plays and films. These include the 1948 film Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (sung by both Cary Grant and Myrna Loy), the 1967 off-Broadway musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (sung by the cast as a glee club rehearsal number), the 1980 film Where the Buffalo Roam (sung by Neil Young over the opening credits), the 2009 film The Messenger (sung by Willie Nelson over the closing credits), and in the 1946 western film Colorado Serenade (sung by actor Roscoe Ates). The song has naturally also made its way into screen shorts for children and adults, as in the 1954 Looney Tunes cartoon, Claws for Alarm, in which it is sung by Porky Pig. It was also used in a Season 4 episode of Cheers (Fools and their money), where the bar-owner Sam Malone sings it along with his employee, Woody Boyd.


Home on the Range has been featured as the state slogan on Kansas vanity license plates since 2005.


Also I have to say that this song is quite suitable for children to play since Home on the Range Stave is very simple. Have a try now!
