Rhode Island, It's for Me
"Rhode Island, It's For Me" is the official state song of Rhode Island. The lyrics are by Charlie Hall, and the music was written by Maria Day. Hall, a comedian, was known for poking fun at Rhode Island in the songs composed for the comedy troupes of "Charlie Hall's Ocean State Follies." Asked at some point after 1992 if he could write something good about the state, Hall penned "Rhode Island’s It For Me." It was adopted as the state song in 1996, replacing "Rhode Island," by T. Clarke Browne, which became the official state march.
