Joy of My Heart

Listen (MP3)
Listen (RealAudio)

Whither I wander, east or west
Waking or dreaming, thou art near me
This is my home, Minnesota

Corn and soybeans in the summer
Snow in the fields in January
This is my home, Minnesota

And sing ye of the northern pine
The lakes and rivers and the prairie
This is my home, Minnesota

Friendly hearts are waiting to cheer me
Tho they'd never come out and say so
This is my home, Minnesota

Mother, father, sister, brother
Sit at the table, nobody talking
This is my home, Minnesota

Don't imagine you're important
You're no better than all of the others
This is my home, Minnesota

Whether I wander, east or west,
Try as I will I cannot escape you,
This is my home, Minnesota.
