"Hail, Vermont!" was the former state song of the U.S. state of Vermont. The song was written by Josephine Hovey Perry of Barre, Vermont, and was officially made the state song in 1938. The song was significant at its time of publication for mentioning Vermont's daughters as well as her sons. From the 1950s through the 1960s the song was given to Vermont school children in a soft-bound booklet titled Vermont Sings. On May 22, 2000, the song was replaced by "'These Green Mountains."'
