“Wyoming You’re a Grand Old State” by Addie E. Holmberg

Wyoming, You’re a Grand Old State

(Air: There’s a Long, Long, Trail)

By Addie E. Holmberg, circa 1925

 

Days and nights I’ve been a’roaming,

Weeks and months drag through;

When I’m far from my Wyoming,

All the world looks blue!

All my heart is full o’ yearning, ---

Fears, and dread o’ fate,---

All my hopes are in Wyoming, dear,

Here’s my hand, she’s a grand old state!

 

You’re a grand, old state, Wyoming

Ohm you’re a reel o’ pictures, rare,---

Rare as priceless pearls, in most states,

Though they’re bountiful, here, as air!

You’re a fine background, Wyoming, mine,

For high, heroic actions, true,

Here’s my heart, and hand, Wyoming, dear,

With a long, strong cheer for you!

 

So, I’ll hit the trail, a homing.

To where my heart-strings pull

It’s there, in glorious Wyoming,

That hearts and hearths, are full!

All the world I’ll give Wyoming,

To share your crown, and fate,---

All your friends are mine, Wyoming, dear,

You’re my land, my grand old state!

 

You’re a grand old state, Wyoming,

Full o’scenes and wonders, fair,

Fair and free, as birds in May-time, ---

Hands that help, and hearts that dare!

You’re a grand background, Wyoming, mine,

For high, heroic living, true,

Here’s my heart, and hand, Wyoming, dear,

With a long, strong cheer for you!
