Oh, Arkansas
Written by: Terry Rose and Gary Klaff

It's the spirit of the mountains and the spirit of the Delta
It's the spirit of the Capitol dome.
It's the spirit of the river and the spirit of the lakes,
It's the spirit that's in each and every home.
It's the spirit of the people and the spirit of the land,
It's the spirit of tomorrow and today.

Chorus

Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas, Arkansas U.S.A.
It's the spirit of friendship, it's the spirit of hope
It's the Razorbacks every game they play.
Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas, Arkansas U.S.A.

It's the spirit of the forest, it's the spirit of the eagle.
It's the spirit of the country that we love.
It's the spirit of pride that we all feel deep inside,
It's the spirit that shines from above.
It's the spirit of our fathers, it's the spirit of our kids,
It's the spirit of the music that we play.

Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas U.S.A.
Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas U.S.A.
Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas, Oh Arkansas U.S.A.
