                                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.




                                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!
