Lyrics: Utah Phillips.
Tune: Rosalie Sorrels.


I’ve got a home out in Utah
In the Rockies that I learned to love so well.
Where the sego lilies bloom and send up their bright perfume
In the shadow of the mountains, there I dwell.
You can take away all my money;
You can take away most anything I own.
Oh, but I’ve got a home out in Utah,
And I’ll always love my Rocky Mountain home.

I have listened to the pines in the canyons;
I have heard them as they whispered to the stars.
And the streams would hum along as I sang a happy song,
While I played upon my old guitar,
Though tomorrow may find me driftin’
Through a world that is friendless and alone.
Well, I’ve got a home out in Utah:
A place I can always call my own.

Well, I’ve got a man I love in Utah.
I even love the ground he walks upon.
He’ll wait for me, I know, wherever I may go;
He’ll miss me every moment that I’m gone.
I can tell by the letters that he writes me—
I don’t even have to read between the lines—
That I’ve got a man out in Utah
Who can’t wait for the minute he’ll be mine.

I’ve got a home out in Utah
In the Rockies that I learned to love so well.
Where the sego lilies bloom and send up their bright perfume
In the shadow of the mountains, there I dwell.
You can take away all my money;
You can take away most anything I own.
Oh, but I’ve got a home out in Utah,
And I’ll always love my Rocky Mountain home.
I’ll always love my Rocky Mountain home.
