Rhode Island's It For Me...Well Almost

I'm on my way to Providence, RI today for the Rhode Island RV & Camping Show this weekend and my travels have been halted due to a big snow storm hitting southern Maine. It's funny, we have barely had a winter in Maine and now, on the first day of March, we are getting clobbered! Last Saturday Greenville, Maine got about a foot of fresh snow, it was snowing when I left this morning and the forecast for Saturday calls for more snow. All of the winter weather outdoor enthusiasts are going to love it! Get ready for some fresh powder to snowmobile this weekend!
I, on the other hand, am looking forward to the RV show to talk summer; whitewater rafting, Maine moose watching and let New Englanders know what a great place the Moosehead Lake Region is to visit. But, I'm waiting out the storm at my in-laws in the Augusta area and hoping that when I wake up tomorrow morning and head south to pick up Brian, the roads will be clear and we'll have smooth sailing. Until then, I found the Rhode Island state song to share! Enjoy! Hope to see you in Providence this weekend ~ March 2 - 4, 2012. Northeast Guide Service has some great giveaways to share.

Rhode Island's It for Me
Written by Charlie Hall
Music by Maria Day
Arranged by Kathryn Chester

Chorus

I’ve been to every state we have,
and I think I’m inclined to say
that Rhody stole my heart:
You can keep the forty-nine.

Herring gulls that dot the sky,
blue waves that paint the rocks,
water rich with Neptune’s life,
the boats that line the docks.
I see the lighthouse flickering
to help the sailors see.
There’s a place for everyone:
Rhode Island’s It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Island’s It for Me.

I love the fresh October days,
the buzz on College Hill,
art that moves an eye to tear,
a jewelers special skill.
Icicles refract the sun,
snow falling gracefully.
Some search for a place that’s warm:
Rhode Island’s It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Island’s It for Me.

The skyline piercing Providence,
the State House dome so rare.
residents who speak their minds;
no longer unaware!
Roger Williams would be proud to see his colony,
so don’t sell short this precious port:
Rhode Island’s It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Island’s It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Island’s It for Me.
