Florida, Where the Sawgrass Meets the Sky
Words & lyrics by Jan Hinton

   Florida, land of flowers, land of light,
   Florida, where our dreams can all take flight,
   Whether youth's vibrant morning or the twilight of years,
   There are treasures for all who venture here - in Florida.

   Mocking birds cry and 'gators lie out in the sun
   Bridges span southward to the Keys
   and rockets skyward run,
   The orange blossoms' sweet perfume
   and fireworks fill the air,
   and cultures rich, our native people share.

   Florida, where the sawgrass meets the sky,
   Florida, where our hearts will ever lie,
   Sitting proud in the ocean like a sentinel true,
   Always shielding your own yet giving welcome.

   Florida, land of flowers, land of light,
   Florida, where our dreams can all take flight,
   Whether youth's vibrant morning or the twilight of years,
   There are treasures for all who venture here
   in Florida, Florida.
   Florida, where our hearts will ever lie
