CHORUS
The rose and the gold of a Florida morning
Will bring your soul close to tears,
The rose and the gold of a Florida morning
Will live in your mem'ry for years. Your heart leaps up by her ocean,
Dreams sweet dreams by her streams,
In the calm of her blue estuaries
You'd swear you can hear mermaids sing.

CHORUS
Her Everglades roll on forever,
Grass rivers all tangled with sky,
And over immense Okeechobee
Swift hawk and the bold eagle fly.

CHORUS
The gulf stirs beneath warming West winds,
She nourishes bodies and souls,
When Nature laid hands on this magical land
She blessed it with treasures untold. CHORUS
