Come, all you folks of enterprise who feel inclined to roam


Beyond the Mississippi to seek a pleasant home


Pray take a pioneer's advice, I'll point you out the best--


I mean the state of Kansas, the Lily of the West.

The homestead of the free.

Oh, give me a home where the Buffalo roam


Where the Deer and the Antelope play;


Where never is heard a discouraging word,


And the sky is not clouded all day.
