If you live in West Virginia,
Come with me and pause a while.
See her wealth and power rising,
See her plains and valleys smile!
Give to eastern states their culture,
Give to northern states their fame,
Give to southern states their virtues
Which no other states may claim.
But in words of deathless glory
Far and wide where all may see
Write the name of West Virginia,
Champion of Liberty!
