NORTH CAROLINA STATE SONG

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! ho' 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! Plain and artless her sons, but whose doors open faster At the knock of a stranger, or the tale of disaster. How like the rudeness of the dear native mountains, With rich ore in their bosoms and life in their fountains.

Hurrah! Hurrah! The Old North State forever! Hurrah! Hurrah! The good Old North State!

And her daughters, the Queen or the forest resembling So graceful, so constant, yet the gentlest breath trembling. And true lightwood at heart, let the match be applied them, How they kindle and flame! Oh! none know but who've tried them.

Hurrah! Hurrah! The Old North State forever! Hurrah! Hurrah! The good Old North State!

hen 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!Slide15
