Bernie Sanders 1981 – Boston Globe

 

Our Own Vermont

Thank you Lord for you have graced us

Graced us from the start

We will always love Vermont

And keep it in our hearts

We don’t owe an allegiance

We won’t bow to a throne

We’re fiercely independent

This land it is our own

Calvin Coolidge, Ethan Allen, Bernie Sanders too

Were tempered by green mountains

And crystal waters blue

Our air for e’er is fresh and clean

We’ll have it stay that way

Our cheeks are tough yet warm to touch

Our children proudly pray

We don’t owe an allegiance

We won’t bow to a throne

We’re fiercely independent

This land it is our own

We won’t bow to New Hampshire

And neither to New York

We’ll never waiver in our fights

‘Gainst governmental pork

Our minds shall never favor bills

That will not keep us free

We will always love our land in blessed unity

We don’t owe an allegiance

We won’t bow to a throne

We’re fiercely independent

Vermont it is our own

– Ivan Smason
