Oh Montana, sweep me by
With brazen saddles and pale blue skies
Lift the burden from my  eyes
That I may see what others cry
Then let this rose; slowly die

Pageant silks and cuffs and frills
Trinkets, plaques  and blood red stacks
The gentle breeze on my still cheeks
As a petal blows from my blood red rose
Just like the wind, all full of prose

I grasp a while the sharp cruel thorns
Then to let them go, as the air did blow
On Montana's land all large and grand
Where the wind does blow and  prophets go

Oh Montana sweep me by!
Lift my eyes unto the skies
Take this rose from my eyes
Red with blood from those who stood.

That's great Joyce,

Please tell me, is this near Arizona?
Is the place also famous for roses?
I see a Red Rock Creek nearby, perhaps no connection, but what sort of battle took place?

Regards George
