Saved the day…

So my kid’s school had been practicing the official state song for the state of Nevada to be sung this past Thursday in their gymnasium. All the schools in Nevada were to sing this song around NV at exactly the same time of 10am to try and get into the the guinness book of world records. And all they had to do was send in a digital video copy of the students singing with the time stamp of 10am. Unfortunately, there was a camera failure on CCMES’s part and the students singing was never recorded… however, I was recording my own video just because that is what I do — you know cause I have that dang Art degree from SJSU and all, LOL. So guess who saved the day according to Mrs Jackson?? Yeah this mama…

Here is the song….
Home Means Nevada
Written & Music by Bertha Raffetto
Way out in the land of the setting sun,
Where the wind blows wild and free,
There’s a lovely spot, just the only one
That means home sweet home to me.
If you follow the old Kit Carson trail,
Until desert meets the hills,
Oh you certainly will agree with me,
It’s the place of a thousand thrills.

Home means Nevada
Home means the hills,
Home means the sage and the pine.
Out by the Truckee, silvery rills,
Out where the sun always shines,
Here is the land which I love the best,
Fairer than all I can see.
Deep in the heart of the golden west
Home means Nevada to me.

Whenever the sun at the close of day,
Colors all the western sky,
Oh my heart returns to the desert grey
And the mountains tow’ring high.
Where the moon beams play in shadowed glen,
With the spotted fawn and doe,
All the live long night until morning light,
Is the loveliest place I know.

Home means Nevada
Home means the hills,
Home means the sage and the pines.
Out by the Truckee’s silvery rills,
Out where the sun always shines,
There is the land that I love the best,
Fairer than all I can see.
Right in the heart of the golden west
