Louisiana March State Song:
"Louisiana My Home Sweet Home"

"Louisiana My Home Sweet Home"

Kissed by the Gulf's mighty stream,
A lovely state, LOUISIANA,
Where sweet magnolias, so rare,
Perfume the air
With fragrance that's supreme.
God bless our lovely state.
It's a paradise right here on earth.


CHORUS:

LOUISIANA, LOUISIANA,
It's beauty's always aglow.
Moss covered shade trees
Sway in the cool breeze
While lazy bayous flow.
The sugar cane gleams
Beneath the moonbeams
That light the Heaven's silvr'y dome.
Deep in the Southland
There is a dreamland:
LOUISIANA, my home, sweet home.

LOUISIANA, my home, sweet home.
