The Rhode Island State March

Rhode Island

words and music by T. Clarke Brown

    Here's to you, belov'd RHODE ISLAND,
    With your Hills and Ocean Shore.
    We are proud to hail you RHODY
    And your patriots of yore.

    First to claim your independence,
    Great your heritage and fame.
    The smallest State in all the Union,
    We will glorify your name!

Adoption of the State March

The song, "Rhode Island", words and music by Thomas Clarke Brown (1885-1953), was adopted as the official song of Rhode Island on April 30, 1946. However, in 1996, a bill was approved in the General Assembly that replaced "Rhode Island" as the official state song with "Rhode Island's It for Me" and designated "Rhode Island" the official state march.

The following information is excerpted from the Rhode Island General Statutes, Title 42, Chapter 42-4, Section 42-4-4.1. The words are included within the statute.

    We are proud to hail you RHODY
    And your patriots of yore.

    First to claim your independence,
    Great your heritage and fame.
    The smallest State in all the Union,
    We will glorify your name!
