"Rhode Island it's for Me"

by Charlie Hall and Maria Day, arrranged by Kathryn Chester

I've been to every state we have
but I think that I'm inclined
To say that Rhody stole my heart.
You can keep the forty nine.

Herring gulls that dot the sky
Blue waves that paint the rocks
Water rich with Neptune's life
The boats that line the docks.

I see the lighthouse flickering
to help the sailors see.
There is a place for everyone
Rhode Island it's for me!

Rhode Island oh Rhode Island
Surrounded by the sea
Some people roam
the earth for home
Rhode Island it's for me.

I love the October days
The buzz on College Hill
Harvard losing one to Brown
A RISD student's skill
Icicles refract the sun

Snow falling gracefully
Some people search
for a place that's warm
Rhode Island it's for me.

Rhode Island oh Rhode Island
Surrounded by the sea
Some people roam
the earth for home
Rhode Island it's for me.

The skyline piercing Providence
The state house dome so rare
Residents who speak their minds
No longer unaware

Some people think that heaven
Is the place for ecstacy
But don't sell short this precious port
Rhode Island it's for me.

Rhode Island oh Rhode Island
Surrounded by the sea
Some people roam
the earth for home
Rhode Island it's for me.

Rhode Island oh Rhode Island
Surrounded by the sea
Some people roam
the earth for home
Rhode Island it's for me.
