Old New Hampshire

Written by Dr. John F. Holmes
Composed by Maurice Hoffmann

With a skill that knows no measure,
From the golden store of Fate
God, in His great love and wisdom,
Made the rugged Granite State;
Made the lakes, the fields, the forests;
Made the Rivers and the rills;
Made the bubbling, crystal fountains
Of New Hampshire's Granite Hills

Old New Hampshire, Old New Hampshire
Old New Hampshire Grand and Great
We will sing of Old New Hampshire,
Of the dear old Granite State

Builded he New Hampshire glorious
From the borders to the sea;
And with matchless charm and splendor
Blessed her for eternity.
Hers, the majesty of mountain;
Hers, the grandeur of the lake;
Hers, the truth as from the hills

In the fair state of New Hampshire
We eat beef and we eat chicken
'cause we don't believe the rumors
(K.F.C. is finger-lickin') WE SING
Blow New Hampshire Blow, Woah
Blow New Hampshire Blow,
Where genetic engineering meets the honest farmers hoe.
