Home On The Range Rose Paterno Jan r1r2pat@aol.com I recently met someone who related this tale to me and I was wondering if anyone here has ever heard of it.
There was a doctor who lived in New York and also practiced there. One day, he felt he had enough of city life and headed out west to find peace and tranquility. As he sat by a lake and felt very peaceful, he was inspired to write the words to Home On The Range. He left the paper on which it was written in a place where it would be safe from the elements. Years later, someone found it and put it to music and had it published.
