Oh gorgeous state, you are a paradise!
With Mountains wild that lift up towards the sky
Their airy peaks with beauties that suffice
The soul of man and make his ideals high.

I Love your pine trees hugging mountain's cheek;
Your waterfalls that lecture to the stones;
Your hazy valleys, stretching out to greet
The log-hewn huts- the rancher's novel homes.

I love your various game; and eagle proud
That soars around his lonely rocky nest, 
And as I stand a voice breaks sweet and loud;
"Montana mine, queen of the Golden West."
