It is hard to believe with all the history that Montana has made over the year's, that the state itself is surprisingly young. The "Treasure State" has only "officially" been a state for 128 years today. Happy Birthday Montana.

Ranking 4th in size, but 44th in population. Montana is one of the few places where people can still enjoy wide open spaces. Think of it this way, our state is slightly larger than the entire country of Japan.

I am proud to be born and raised in Montana and will raise a glass the Big Sky Country on it's birthday.

Tell me of that Treasure State
Story always new,
Tell of its beauties grand
And its hearts so true.
Mountains of sunset fire
The land I love the best
Let me grasp the hand of one
From out the golden West
Montana, Montana, Glory of the West
Of all the states from coast to coast, You're easily the best
Montana, Montana, Where skies are always blue
M-O-N-T-A-N-A
Montana I love you!
Each country has its flow'r;
Each one plays a part,
Each bloom brings a longing hope
To some lonely heart.
Bitterroot to me is dear
Growing in my land
Sing then that glorious air
The one I understand.
Montana, Montana, Glory of the West
Of all the states from coast to coast, You're easily the best
Montana, Montana, Where skies are always blue
Montana, Montana I love you!
