Through the West I've roamed at leisure Viewed the Hudson in its flow- Heard the thund'rings of Niag'ra And the echoes from below, But no page in Nature's Album E'er can be so grand to me As the view from dear old Lookout Down in Sunny Tennessee Mutely stands-sublime-majestic-Head erect, high in the air-Sentinel so grandly valiant Watching o'er the valley there, While at night in restful slumber Ninety thousand souls repose, Safe above the circling river, Where the mighty water flows See! Where once the noise of battle Rent the cloud-protected field, And with clash of sword and sabre, Men were crushed and forced to yield Now in peaceful transformation Life is offered those who live-Silent tribute from the carriage Would these heights to mortals give! Master, thou, of earth and heaven, None more proud deserves to be' Noble crest that reaches skyward Drawing all men unto thee! Poets bring their choicest Laurels Potentates enraptured be, As they stand on dear old Lookout, Down in Sunny Tennessee!
