You might be from Minnesota! 

    

If you are walking through a stand of trees, 

Which makes you feel happy and pleased!    (You might be from Minnesota!)

 

If you love the smell of new mown hay,

In which you want to romp and play,      (You might be from Minnesota!)

 

If your heart is happy and skips a beat

When you first feel the summers heat.      (You might be from Minnesota)

 

If you are canoeing across a pristine lake, 

Not making a ripple or a tiny wake,    (You might be from Minnesota)


If you grew up on a family farm,

Lived by the motto “do no harm”.    (You might be from Minnesota!)

 

 
If you learned to talk, then learned to pray,

And you were taught to work hard every day,     (You might be from Minnesota)


If you love four very different seasons, 

All for distinctly different reasons,    (You might be from Minnesota!)

 

 
If you pray with gratitude when you go to bed

Giving thanks for the pillow beneath your head.   (You may be from Minnesota!)


A million reasons to love this state,

Where happiness never has to wait.

(YES! I once lived in Minnesota!)
