Nebraska

The Kinkaiders

1

You ask what place I like the best,
The sand hills, O the old sand hills;
The place Kinkaiders make their home,
And prairie chickens freely roam.

Chorus:
 In all Nebraska's wide domain
 'Tis the place we long to see again;
 The sand hills are the very best,
 She is the queen of all the rest.

2

The corn we raise is our delight,
The melons, too, are out of sight.
Potatoes grown are extra fine
And can't be beat in any clime.

3

The peaceful cows in pastures dream
And furnish us with golden cream,
So I shall keep my Kinkaid home
And never far away shall roam.

Chorus:
 Then let us all with hearts sincere
 Thank him for what has brought us here,
 And for the homestead law he made,
 This noble Moses P. Kinkaid.
