    Lyrics:


    The Claim Jumper

    I was one of the first out to Malta
    Hitched a ride on the James Hill line

    Make a name in the Milk River Valley
    Sick and tired of the meager life

    Yeah the West, it was wild all’s fair game
    Found a prime piece of frontier land

    Cut some timber and built a little farmhouse
    Dug some holes for a barbed wire fence

    Worked the land and in 4 years...prosper
    Irrigated by the sweat of my brow

    That Fall, an urgent telegram came through
    Saying Mama had fallen ill
    And it won’t be long
    I was gone

    Heyooooooooo
    Honyocker, Chicken Chaser
    A Scissorbill Nester
    Heyooooooooo
    Or you can call me Claim Jumper, I don’t care
    ‘Cause I know what’s always been mine

    It’s my find.


    I returned with a heavy heart, but grateful
    Said goodbye in time and left in haste

    I’d been warned while gone vultures would circle
    Sure enough one contested my claim

    In the heart of the Homesteader invasion
    Backed by the Judge Beard Outfit

    J. Spurlock knew just what he was doin’
    Wearin’ my boots he aimed and spit when I walked in
    You’re trespassing kid

    Heyooooooooo
    Honyocker, Chicken Chaser
    A Scissorbill Nester
    Heyooooooooo
    Or you can call me Claim Jumper, I don’t care
    ‘Cause I know it’s my find

    Heyooooooooo
    Honyocker, Chicken Chaser
    A Scissorbill Nester
    Heyooooooooo
    Or you can call me Claim Jumper, I don’t care
    ‘Cause I know what’s always been mine

    It’s my find.


    Ya see that’s the part of the story they like to leave out
    Whisper Whispers all I hear when I’m spending money in town
    It’s been 20 years since he neglected, abandoned my home
    This old man don’t give a damn, I can’t steal what I already own


    Heyooooooooo
    Honyocker, Chicken Chaser
    A Scissorbill Nester
    Heyooooooooo
    Or you can call me Claim Jumper, I don’t care
    ‘Cause I know it’s my find

    Heyooooooooo
    Honyocker, Chicken Chaser
    A Scissorbill Nester
    Heyooooooooo
    Or you can call me Claim Jumper, I don’t care
    ‘Cause I know what’s always been, I know what’s rightfully mine
