An Arkansas State Song

Arkansas (You Run Deep In Me)
Written and composed by Wayland Holyfield

   October morning in the Ozark Mountains,
   Hills ablazing like that sun in the sky.
   I fell in love there and the fire's still burning
   A flame that will never die.

   Chorus
   Oh, I may wander, but when I do
   I will never be far from you.
   You're in my blood and I know you'll always be.
   Arkansas, you run deep in me.

   Moonlight dancing on a delta levee,
   To a band of frogs and whippoorwill
   I lost my heart there one July evening
   And it's still there, I can tell.

   Repeat Chorus

   Magnolia blooming, Mama smiling,
   Mallards sailing on a December wind.
   God bless the memories I keep recalling
   Like an old familiar friend.

   Repeat Chorus

   And there's a river rambling through the fields and valleys,
   Smooth and steady as she makes her way south,
   A lot like the people whose name she carries.
   She goes strong and she goes proud.

   Repeat Chorus
