Sweet Maryland, thy groves are green, And sparkling are thy rills, And lovely are thy vales between Thy fair and verdant hills. Though far away I plow the sea, Or in far countries roam, My heart with fondness clings to thee, Sweet Maryland, my home!
Long years have passed since, when a boy, I roamed thy fields with glee, Or on thy waters, bright with joy, Dashed outward to the sea. How fair, how dear those scenes to me - Thy skies, how bright above; At night's pale hour I dream of thee, Sweet Maryland, my love!
What joy to see thee yet once more. To hail thy favored land; How gladly would I leap on shore, To tread thy silver strand! And I will cross Atlantic's main, When summer days shall come, To roam the woods and hills again Of Maryland, my home.
