Oregon, Where Love is Best

I have been a rolling stone

I have never ceased to roam

Wand'ring under ev'ry sky

But at last I've reached the spot

That is dearest to my heart

And I want to tell you why

Oregon in all her streams

I see your face divine

Oregon her stars are like your eyes that brightly shine

Thro' the woods a trail is windin'

Happiness we'll be a-findin'

In the West where love is best

I've built for you a cozy nest

And where the smoke is slowly curling thro' the tall pine tree

In the sky-blue waters your bewitching smile I see

Sweetheart, if you'll share my cabin I'll have ev'rything worth havin'

Come along to Oregon with me

Poets sing of desert skies

Golden sands and red sunrise

But give me the Northland moon

'Neath its rays we sit each night

Humming soft in loe's delight

This old sweet and haunting tune.

Oregon in all her streams

I see your face divine

Oregon her stars are like your eyes that brightly shine

Thro' the woods a trail is windin'

Happiness we'll be a-findin'

In the West where love is best

I've built for you a cozy nest

And where the smoke is slowly curling thro' the tall pine tree

In the sky-blue waters your bewitching smile I see

Sweetheart, if you'll share my cabin I'll have ev'rything worth havin'

Come along to Oregon with me
