You asked what land I love the best, Iowa, tis Iowa, The fairest State of all the west, Iowa, O! Iowa, From yonder Misissippi's streamTo where Missouri's waters gleamO! fair it is as poet's dream, Iowa, in Iowa. See yonders fields of tasseled corn, Iowa in Iowa,Where plenty fills her golden horn, Iowa in Iowa,See how her wonderous praries shine.To yonder sunset’s purpling line,O! happy land, O! land of mine, Iowa, O! Iowa.
And she has maids whose laughing eyes, Iowa, O! Iowa.To him whose loves were Paradise, Iowa, O! IowaO! happiest fate that e’er was known.Such eyes to shine for one alone,To call such beauty all his own. Iowa, O! Iowa
Go read the story of thy past. Iowa, O! IowaWhat glorious deeds, what fame thou hast! Iowa, O! IowaSo long as time’s great cycle runs,Or nations weep their fallen ones,Thou’lt not forget thy patriot sons, Iowa, O! Iowa
