Maine State Song: "State of Maine Song"

"State of Maine Song"

Grand State of Maine, proudly we sing
To tell your glories to the land
To shout your praises till the echoes ring

Should fate unkind send us to roam
The scent of the fragrant pines,
The tang of the salty sea will call us home.

Chorus

Oh, Pine Tree State
Your woods, fields and hills
Your lakes, streams and rockbound coast
Will ever fill our hearts with thrills
And tho' we seek far and wide
Our search will be in vain
To find a fairer spot on earth
Than Maine! Maine! Maine!
