Vermont State Song

"These Green Mountains"

Lyrics: Diane Martin
Music: Diane Martin

"Hail, Vermont!" served as the state song for 62 years. Composer Josephine Hovey Perry of Barre wrote the song describing a Vermonter’s pride in the beauty and history of the state. It was selected by a committee in 1937 and made official on May 12, 1938. The Vermont Arts Council commissioned a competition for the selection of the state song in 1998, and on May 22, 2000, "These Green Mountains" was chosen as the state song from among more than 100 songs submitted.  -World Trade Press

These green hills and silver waters
are my home. They belong to me.
And to all of her sons and daughters
May they be strong and forever free.
Let us live to protect her beauty
And look with pride on the golden dome.
They say home is where the heart is
These green mountains are my home.
These green mountains are my home.
