USA Rugby - Home on the Range

Discussion in 'International Test Matches' started by captainamerica, May 27, 2009.

  1. i'll be attending the USA v Ireland match this sunday,
    and i'm looking to launch a movement to have "Home on the Range" sung in the stands.

    i might even print small flyers for those who think they know the words but actually don't.

    "Home on the Range" is a fantastic traditional American song,
    and has many great vowels to be belted at top volume.

    so, any Americans attending USA Rugby Tests this summer/the future,
    or if you come from a proud rugby tradition of singing and are at a match when the Eagles are playing
    (be it XVs or Sevens)
    clear your throats, hoist your drinks up high and let loose.

    here are my proposed words.
    a mix Higley's original (1876), Lomax's update (1910)
    and me drunkenly shouting "Eagles!" in a couple places - feel free to join.

    thanks in advance. i'd love for this to take root.

    Oh, give me a home
    Where the buffalo roam
    and the dear and the antelope play (EAGLES!)
    Where seldom is heard
    a discouraging word
    and the sky is not cloudy all day

    HOME! Home on the Range!
    Where the dear and the antelope play (EAGLES!)
    Where seldom is heard
    a discouraging word
    and the sky is not cloudy all day

    well thank you kindly.
    the crowd at usa v ireland was 10,075 - and were in a fantastic mood. match left much to be desired.
    there was some singing, so give it a go!

    incidentally, when you get to the deer and antelope line,
    make sure to sing "deer" and not "dear" as is written above. :rolleyes:
    entirely changes the meaning when you sing about where expensive things and the antelope play.

    Our team's national song should be "America, **** Yeah!" :bravo:

    Maybe it can be played when we win a Churchill Cup game.
