Oregon, My Oregon

by J.A. Buchanan & Henry B. Murtagh

Oregon designated Oregon, My Oregon by J.A. Buchanan and Henry B. Murtagh the official state song in 1927.


Land of the Empire Builders,
Land of the Golden West;
Conquered and held by free men,
Fairest and the best.
Onward and upward ever,
Forward and on, and on;
Hail to thee, Land of Heroes,
My Oregon.

Land of the rose and sunshine,
Land of the summer's breeze;
Laden with health and vigor,
Fresh from the Western seas.
Blest by the blood of martyrs,
Land of the setting sun;
Hail to thee, Land of Promise,
My Oregon.
