The Nebraska State Ballad

A Place Like Nebraska

words and music by Sol Kutler

    When I dream of my home
    And the good folks I've known
    I'm glad I've grown up
    In Nebraska

    Cause the good life is there
    With sun and fresh air
    And neighbors who care
    In Nebraska

    Wherever you go, they all want to know
    And someday someone will ask ya
    So turn on your smile
    Tell them life is worthwhile
    When you're bred and corn-fed in Nebraska

    With cool winding streams
    And good football teams
    And jobs that are there for the asking

    With daughters and sons
    Some real famous ones
    All proud to be called a Nebraskan

    'Cause wherever you go, they all want to know
    And someday someone will ask ya
    So turn on your smile
    Tell them life is worthwile
    When you come from a place like Nebraska

    A soft fally snow
    A warm fire's glow
    And a lifetime of memories to last ya

    Of a cool summer's breeze
    And bright autumn leaves
    Each season a joy in Nebraska

    So wherever you go, you just let them know
    'Cause someday someone will ask ya
    So turn on your smile
    Tell them life is worthwile
    When you come from a place like Nebraska

Adoption of the State Ballad

Unlike other states, Nebraska has passed legislation that allows the Governor to declare state symbols without going through the Legislature. On October 9, 1997, Governor Ben Nelson declared ďA Place Like Nebraska", words and music by Sol Kutler, to be the official state ballad of Nebraska.
