Default Arizona State Song - by Rex Allen, Jr

In case you weren't aware, Arizona has two official (and one unofficial) state song(s). This particular ARIZONA was adopted in 1981, and was written by Rex Allen, Jr, which I happen to believe is the most beautiful!

As I listen to this ARIZONA song, I can envision people like azhiker out there enjoying the trails; I see others sitting out on their porch having a coffee, an horchata, or a lemonade; still others making a quilt, or working on a painting, or just relaxing after a long day...

Sure... go ahead and call me a hopeless romantic... its okay!

Arizona's other official song (or anthem) is "The Arizona March Song", and the lyrics were written by Margaret Rowe Clifford in 1915. The music was composed by Maurice Blumenthal, and adopted on February 28, 1919.

There is also an unofficial Arizona song, "Arizona", which was done by Mark Lindsay, who was with Paul Revere & the Raiders!

And, here is a list of all official U.S. state songs and anthems for your perusal.

Nice song. First time I ever heard it. Passed through the home of Rex Allen a few days ago, as it happens. Went to Cave Creek Canyon on the east side of the Chiricahuas the other day. Spectacular place. My favorite of all the mountain ranges in SE AZ. Check out these photos:

If I remember correctly, it needed to be sung to the tune of "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree..."
