Nebraska

Listen (MP3)
Watch

O the snow-capped peaks are lovely
And ocean beaches too
But the prairies of Nebraska
Are where I'll live with you.

Are where I'll live with you
Beneath a bright blue sky
On the prairies of Nebraska
I'll live until I die.

In the Sand Hills of Nebraska
The geese and swans come there
The honking every springtime
Like music in the air.

Like music in the air
Beneath the bright blue sky
On the prairies of Nebraska
I'll live until I die.

We cheer for our Cornhuskers
Nebraska Red always
Together in the bleachers
On glorious Saturdays.

On glorious Saturdays
Beneath the bright blue sky
On the prairies of Nebraska
I'll live until I die.

And when the snow is flying
And we turn up the heat
And in your arms I'm lying
And singing low and sweet.

And singing low and sweet
Beneath the winter sky
On the prairies of Nebraska
I'll live until I die.

O the snow-capped peaks are lovely
And ocean beaches too
But the prairies of Nebraska
Are where I'll live with you.
