Montana (Jerry Rasmussen) 1. It's the hell of a drive just to say hello And how are you doing and I miss you so And why did you have to move so far away Why to move all the way to Montana cho: There's an old yellow photograph from way out West And you know that the picture tells the story best When you're young and in love you drive a million miles Or at least all the way to Montana. 2. It's a long way from knickers and the (high-cut) boots To a parting down the middle and the brand-new suit. He could pick any girl in the neighborhood So he picks one who moves to Montana. 3. So he cranked up his Model T and headed West Just to prove that his love for her could stand the test. He pulled into Sydney and he tracked her down Love can boom even out in Montana. 4. With his hands in his pockets and his shirt-tails up He could tell in a minute that the fire gone out. And there's no sense in mooning like a love-sick fool Who would drive all the way to Montana. 5. Now I s'pose I should tell you how the story ends And how my dad met my mam and where I began. From the first time they met he was (c/h)ooked for good And she'd never even been to Montana. WH
