Love Of Place Stronger

Love of Place stronger than Love of Country any day
At least that's how it is with me anyway
Love of Place has inspired many a story and song
We live in a Country to Place we belong
Where you once lived yours may be a forgotten face
But few loves as we know do transcend Love of Place
In our memory such a love a lifetime remain
And in fancy we often visit there again
He did not live on for to grow old and gray
But he fought and died for his Country the patriots say
And though few for Love of Place ever choose to die
'Tis a love that can transcend Love of Country and that's not a lie
The artists do sketch it the singers of it do sing
This Love of Place is a remarkable thing.
