Wyoming State Song

 

Words by Charles E. Winter

Music by George E. Knapp

 

 

In the far and mighty West, Where the crimson sun seeks rest,

There’s a growing splendid State that lies above

On the breast of this great land; Where the massive Rockies stand,

There’s Wyoming young and strong, the State I Love!

 

Refrain

 

In thy flowers wild and sweet, Colors rare and perfumes meet;

There’s the columbine so pure, the daisy too,

Wild the rose and red it springs, White the button and its rings,

Thou art loyal for they’re red and white and blue.

 

Refain

 

Where thy peaks with crowned head, Rising till the sky they wed,

Sit like snow queens ruling wood and stream and plain

"Neath thy granite bases deep, "Neath thy bosom’s broadened sweep,

Lie the riches that have gained and brought thee fame.

 

Refrain

 

Other treasures thou dost hold, Men and women thou dost mould;

True and earnest are the lives that thou dost raise,

Strength thy children thou dost teach, Nature’s truth thou giv’st to each,

Free and noble are thy workings and thy ways.

 

Refrain

 

In the nations banner free There’s one star that has for me

A radiance pure and a splendor like the sun;

Mine it is, Wyoming’s star, Home it leads me near or far;

Wyoming all my heart and love you’ve won!

 

Refrain

 

Wyoming, Wyoming

Land of the sunlight clear,

Wyoming, Wyoming

Land that we hold so dear.

Wyoming! Wyoming!

Precious art thou and thine

Wyoming! Wyoming!

Beloved state of mine!
