Hark! Through the darksome night, sounds come a – winging: Lo! ‘tis the Queen of Light, joyfully singing. Deep in the northern sky, bright stars are beaming; Summer is drawing nigh, sunlight is gleaming. Clad in her garment white, wearing her crown of light, Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia. Welcome thou vision rare, lights glowing in thy hair. Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia. Soft winds caress the sea, breezes so tender. Make every dancing wave, gladly surrender! Days here are heavenly, nights are pure ecstasy, Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia. Santa Lucia
The Yellow Rose of Texas 8 There’s a yellow of Texas that I am going to see. No other fellow knows her, no body else but me. She cried so when I left her, it almost broke her heart, And if I ever find___ her, we never more shall part. She’s the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew. Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew. You you may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosealee, But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me. 8 Oh I’m going back to find her, my heart is full of woe. We’ll sing the songs together, we sang so long ago. I’ll pick the banjo hap’ly, and sing the songs of yore. The yellow rose of Texas, she’ll be mine for evermore. REPEAT the REFRAIN!!!

My Home’s in Montana My home’s in Montana, I left Indiana to start a new life far away in the west; My skin’s rough as leather, made tough by the weather, The wind and the sun of the land I love best.

I learned how to lasso way down in El Paso, I’ve followed the cattle where ever they roam; I’m weary of straying, right here I’ll be staying, I’ll wander no more for Montana’s my home.

We love to play and sing, as the happy days go by.
