Rhode Island's It for Me

Written by Charlie Hall

Chorus

I’ve been to every state we have,and I think 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’s a place for everyone: Rhode Island’s It for Me.


Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island surrounded by the sea. Some people roam the earth for home; Rhode Island’s It for Me.

I love the fresh October days, the buzz on College Hill,art that moves an eye to tear,a jewelers special skill. Icicles refract the sun, snow falling gracefully. Some search for a place that’s warm: Rhode Island’s It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island surrounded by the sea. Some people roam the earth for home; Rhode Island’s It for Me.

The skyline piercing Providence,the State House dome so rare. Residents who speak their minds; no longer unaware! Roger Williams would be proud to see his colony, so don’t sell short this precious port: Rhode Island’s It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island surrounded by the sea. Some people roam the earth for home; Rhode Island’s It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island surrounded by the sea. Some people roam the earth for home;Rhode Island’s It for Me...

State Tree ... Red Maple
