At the Coast, Oregon's Fine All The Year
(to the tune of "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year")
Copyright © 2011 Kevin Ahern

Oregon is my adopted home. I grew up in Fowler, IL (population 200) and lived in Oklahoma for 10 years, but when I came to Oregon for graduate school in 1981, it was love at first sight. It's hard to say what my favorite thing about the state is because there are so many things I love about it. The coast certainly is certainly near the top of the list. This wonderful recording by David Simmons captures the spirit of the state and of the original melody it is based upon. Truly, one of my favorites. You can download David's recording HERE.

At the coast, Oregon's fine all the year
There are beaches a-glistening.
Plus birds softly whistling and great local beers
At the coast, Oregon's fine all the year

There's the most splendid of times in the fall
You can play some iTunes
Riding over the dunes if you yield to the call
To the splen-did-li-est times of the fall

In the summer there's hiking
And 101 biking
And weenie roasts out in the sand
There are beaches with kites and great sunsets at night
And surprises you could not have planned

As for spring you can have fun every day
Sit and sample pale ales
While you're watching the whales at the Port of Coos Bay
In the spring there's something new every day

In the winter, the morning
Might bring a storm warning
To cause an increase in the tide
You can touch the sea breezes while tasting the cheeses in Tillamook
And in Seaside

At the coast, Oregon's fine thru the year
You can visit the park named for Lewis and Clark, so come on out here
To the coast, Oregon's fine
Have a magnificent time
At the coast, Oregon's fine all the year
