O CASCADIA

Music and Lyrics © 2010 Lloyd Vivola


Intro:   F      C      D    D/A    D   ( No chord/G -F#-E )


Em                       C         G                  D

Bright burns the sun upon the misty mountain

                         Em                               C               G                           D

Where the woodland waters run and tumble to the sea

                   Em                       C         G           D

With the force of your story, O Cascadia

Em                    C          D                             Em

Work of the ages, garden of our dreams


Em                           C                         G                               D

Rich grows the wealth when balance and integrity

           Em                           C                     G                     D

Can cultivate good health and foster industry to be

     Em                       C                G           D

Diverse as your people, O Cascadia

F                            C       D                                Em                             

Capable and just, purposeful and green


             G                           D               F                           C

Let us tend to each season, tempered by reason

Am                     Em                  C                                    D

Vested and neighborly, joining heart and hand

                 G                         D              Bm                      Em

To be a light among nations when we proclaim

          F                        C                    A7                   D

Our pledge to respect, protect and sustain


Em                     C              G                              D

Wise be the ways of happiness and liberty

             Em                C               G                            D

When labor and love partake in harmony

               Em                     C           G          D

With a mind for the future, O Cascadia

Em                       C                      D                          Em

Peaceful the homeland, bountiful and free

F                           C                      D                          C        G

Long live the homeland, bountiful and free
