Montanas governor Brian Schweitzer just officially adopted a tune called Montana Lullaby as the states official lullaby, and its the first song to ever get that honor.
The songs lyrics include, But the wind in the pines/ Whispers shes mine/ With a Montana lullaby, but songwriter Ken Overcast admits those lines were more inspired by cows, than a comely cutie.
He says the narcoleptic number is about a lonesome cowboy out on the range missing his lady and singing to his cows.
Apparently, working the wild west kept many wranglers wide awake.
As Overcast puts it, They had to ride around them all night to sing [the cows] to sleep.
