Despite the tragic, and at times, melodramatic nature of the verse, the melody is broad and expansive in scope an octave plus three notes. The setting of this tune in Prairie Songs is intended to convey a feeling of grandeur and beauty of the land before time.
The second section of the piece quotes "The Turkey Song" which some authorities believe originated in Kentucky and moved west with the settlers. It is found in various collections of childrens' folksongs, including those of Pete Seeger and Jill Trinka.

Although scored for first clarinets, the pickup to measure 9 can be used to feature a solo player, with tutti resuming at the pickup to measure At measure 24, the ensemble must not eclipse the melody in the alto and tenor saxophones, and euphonium. Pay close attention to the articulation markings throughout the allegro section. Notes that conclude slurred passages are often marked with a staccato and should be played short, but not clipped or accented. The canonic section at measure 84 should remain piano until the sudden forte just before measure The two themes are combined at measure , and dynamics may have to be adjusted accordingly.
