A Kansas March

Here's Kansas

words and music by Bill Post

    Kansas is the state for me,
    Beautiful and plain to see miles around,
    With hills and plains and furrowed ground;

    Kansas has a heart display,
    The heart of the plains toward the future
    With her eyes upon the future
    She will trust in God from day to day;

    As she rings the bell of freedom
    She will not forget the freedom
    That will bind her close in ev'ry way.
    
    The one with the plow,
    With the crowded street,
    All walks of life with aims to meet
    Will agree to be as one for liberty.

    Kansas is alive today,
    Going forth in full array,
    All the way and we, the people of ev'ry county,
    Love Kansas more each day.

Adoption of the Kansas March

The Kansas march, "Here's Kansas", words and music by Bill Post, was adopted as an official march of Kansas on July 1, 1992. Kansas has adopted two state marches. The other, "The Kansas March", was approved in 1935.

Kansas General Statutes

The following information is excerpted from the Kansas General Statutes, Chapter 73, Section 73-802. The words and the sheet music are included within the statute.
