Vermont Retired State Song: "Hail, Vermont!"

"Hail, Vermont!"

Hail to Vermont ! Lovely Vermont ! Hail to Vermont so fearless !
Sing we a song ! Sing loud and long ! To our little state so peerless !
Green are her hills, Clear are her rills, Fair are her lakes and rivers and valleys;
Blue are her skies, Peaceful she lies, But when roused to a call she speedily rallies.

Chorus:
Hail to Vermont ! Dear old Vermont ! Our love for you is great.
We cherish your name, We laud ! We acclaim ! Our own Green Mountain State.

Proud of Vermont, Lovely Vermont, Proud of her charm and her beauty;
Proud of her name, Proud of her fame, We're proud of her sense of duty;
Proud of her past, Proud first and last, Proud of her lands and proud of her waters;
Her men are true. Her women, too. We're proud of her sons and proud of her daughters.

Chorus:
Hail to Vermont ! Dear old Vermont ! Our love for you is great.
We cherish your name, We laud ! We acclaim ! Our own Green Mountain State.

From Office of the Secretary of State, Vermont Legislative Directory and State Manual, Biennial Session, 1993-1994, p. 21.

Origin of Song: "Hail, Vermont!"

A legislative act of 1937 authorized a "committee" to select an official state song for Vermont. Of the over 100 songs that were submitted for consideration, "Hail, Vermont", words and music by Josephine Hovey Perry (1885-1952) of Barre,stood out.

Governor George D. Aiken was informed of the selection on May 12, and on May 13, 1938, "Hail, Vermont" was adopted as the official state song of Vermont. It served for 62 years, until the Vermont Legislature replaced it with "These Green Mountains" in 2000.
