Do you know the official Washington state song? Did you even know that there WAS an official Washington state song? Scroll down and you can see the lyrics and then take a listen to a YouTube audio of the song if you've never heard it before.
I, for one, had no clue until I saw something about it on OnlyInYourState.com. The official Washington state song is called, "Washington, My Home".
The song contains elements of religious fervor mixed with a reverence for the beauty found within the Evergreen State. "Washington, My Home" was written by a lady named Helen Davis. It was adopted as the official state song in 1959. A composer named Stuart Churchill designed the musical accompaniment.
I was born and raised in Tennessee and to tell you the truth, I couldn't tell you what our state song was. I have two guesses though: "Oh, Susanna, Don't You Cry for Me" or "Chattanooga Choo-Choo"? Okay, so one is a nursery rhyme and the other one is a song only about one city, not the entire state. To be completely honest, nobody seems to give a [BLEEP] about state songs anymore except band members. Well, and YOU because you clicked on this article (and possibly learned something new)!
