Baautiful Arkansas

Cat. #0375 (MFH #53) - As sung by Jack Stockslager, Eureka Springs, Arkansas on July 15, 1959

Down in th heart of the Ozarks
There's th most wonderful place
Kissed by th streams from th mountns
A spot that's all beauty an' grace
Arkansas, land of abundence
Made by th angels above
Here lives th kindest of people
This is th State that I love
Beautiful Arkansas, State that I love
Garden of Eden supreme
Nature all dressed up in beauty
It's a picture no artist could dream
DeSoto first came to this beautiful land
Gazed on its splendor with awe
For God put a heaven on earth when he made
Our beautiful Arkansas
