Why I Love Her.....


 

 

You ask me why I love her,

give me time, I'll explain.
Have you seen a Kansas sunset or an Arizona rain?

Have you drifted down a bayou down Louisiana way?
Have you watched the cold fog drifting over San Francisco bay?

Have you heard a Bobwhite calling in the Carolina pines?
Or heard the bellow of a diesel in the Appalachia mines?

Does the call of Niagara thrill you when you hear her waters roar?
Look with awe and wonder
at a Massachusetts shore --

Where men who braved a hard new world first stepped on Plymouth Rock.
Do you think of them when you walk along a New York City dock?

Have you seen a snowflake drifting in the Rockies way up high?
Have you seen the sun come blazing down from a bright Nevada sky?

Do you hail to the Columbia as she rushes to the sea?
Or bow your head at Gettysburg in our struggle to be free?

Have you seen the mighty Teton?
Watched an eagle soar?
Have you seen the Mississippi roll along Missouri shore?

Have you felt a chill at Michigan, when on a winter's day her waters rage along the shore in a thunderous display?

Does the word aloha make you warm?
Do you stare in disbelief
when you see the surf come roaring in at Waimea reef?

From Alaska's gold to the Everglades, from the Rio Grand to Maine,
My heart cries out, my pulse runs fast the might of her domain.

You ask me why I love her,
I have a million reasons why -- My beautiful America, beneath God's wide, wide sky.
