This is the official song of the state of Iowa, U.S.
1. You ask what land I love the best, Iowa, tis Iowa,
The fairest State of all the west, Iowa, O! Iowa.
From yonder Mississippi’s stream
To where Missouri’s waters gleam
O! fair it is as poet’s dream, Iowa, in Iowa.
2. See yonder fields of tasseled corn, Iowa in Iowa,
Where plenty fills her golden horn, Iowa in Iowa.
See how her wondrous prairies shine
To yonder sunset’s purpling line,
O! happy land, O! land of mine, Iowa, O! Iowa.
