OUT WHERE THE WEST BEGINS

"Shoshone Falls, Snake River, Idaho" by Timothy O'Sullivan is licensed under CC by 2.0.

Out where the handclasp's a little stronger,
Out where the smile dwells a little longer,
That's where the West begins;
Out where the sun is a little brighter
Where the snows that fall are a trifle whiter,
Where the bonds of home are a wee bit tighter-
That's where the West begins.

Out where the skies are a trifle bluer,
Out where friendship's a little truer,
That's where the West begins;
Out where a fresher breeze is blowing,
Where there's laughter in every streamlet flowing,
Where there's more of reaping and less of sowing-
That's where the West begins.

Out where the world is in the making,
Where fewer hearts in despair are aching,
That's where the West begins;
Where there's more of singing and less of sighing,
Where there's more of giving and less of buying,
And a man makes friends without half trying -
That's where the West begins.
