But the Bad lands of Montana Are the worst I've ever seen, The cowboys are all tenderfeet, And the dogies are all lean.
If you want to see some bad lands, Go over on the Dry; You will bog down in the coulees Where the mountains reach the sky.
A tenderfoot to lead you Who never knows the way; You are playing in the best of luck If you eat more than once a day.
Your grub is bread and bacon, And coffee black as ink; The water so full of alkali It is hardly fit to drink.
They will wake you in the morning, Before the break of day, And send you on a circle A hundred miles away.
All along the Yellowstone 'T is cold the year around; You will surely get consumption By sleeping on the ground.
Work in Montana Is six months in the yearf When all your bills are settled, There is nothing left for beer.
