Carolina! Carolina! heaven's blessings attend her,

While we live we will cherish, protect and defend her,

Tho

' the scorner may sneer at and witlings defame her,

Still our hearts swell with gladness whenever we name her.

Hurrah! Hurrah! the Old North State forever,

Hurrah! Hurrah! the good Old North State.

Tho

' she envies not others, their merited glory,

Say whose name stands the foremost, in liberty's story,

Tho

' too true to herself

e'er

to crouch to oppression,

Who can yield to just rule a more loyal submission.

Hurrah! Hurrah! the Old North State forever,

Hurrah! Hurrah! the good Old North State.

Then let all those who love us, love the land that we live in,

As happy a region as on this side of heaven,

Where plenty and peace, love and joy smile before us,

Raise aloud, raise together the heart thrilling chorus.

Hurrah! Hurrah! the Old North State forever,

Hurrah! Hurrah! the good Old North State. Slide64

Here's to the land of the long leaf pine,

The summer land where the sun doth shine,

Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,

Here's to "Down Home," the Old North State!

Here's to the land of the cotton bloom white,

Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night,

Where the soft southern moss and

jessamine

mate,

'Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State!

Here's to the land where the

galax

grows,

Where the rhododendron's rosette glows,

Where soars Mount Mitchell's summit great,

In the "Land of the Sky," in the Old North State!

Here's to the land where maidens are fair,

Where friends are true and cold hearts rare,

The near land, the dear land, whatever fate,

The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!Slide70
