Resolution Adopting the Songedit

First proposed on May 12, 1983, the bill's preambles explain the rationale for a second state song:

AN ACT TO DESIGNATE "SOUTH CAROLINA ON MY MIND" AS AN OFFICIAL STATE SONG

Whereas, a beautiful inspiring ballad entitled "South Carolina On My Mind" has been created, sung, and recorded by Hank Martin and Buzz Arledge, both native South Carolinians who are now professional musicians in Nashville and New York; and

Whereas, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism provided initial encouragement to Hank and Buzz and introduced "South Carolina On My Mind" in a record distributed to radio stations and in other advertising and promotion materials used extensively by television and other media; and

Whereas, Hank and Buzz have used their own resources to produce a "South Carolina On My Mind" album that features the South Carolina ballad and ten other songs recorded by these talented musicians; and

Whereas, the three most prestigious national music publications have promoted "South Carolina On My Mind", resulting in widespread usage of the song by radio stations across the nation; and

Whereas, Hank and Buzz have scheduled personal appearances to sing the song at several South Carolina Governor's Conferences, the half time show of a University of South Carolina football game, the Pendleton Spring Jubilee, and other major events; and

Whereas, many South Carolina organizations have used "South Carolina On My Mind" as a theme song at national conventions and other programs, and the University of South Carolina basketball team, the Lancaster Rhythm, the Conway CART, and other organizations are using the song for entertainment and promotional purposes; and

Whereas, "South Carolina On My Mind" has penetrated the hearts of countless numbers of Americans and residents of other nations who have heard Hank and Buzz sing this ballad; and

Whereas, millions of these people have become favorably impressed with South Carolina as a direct result of their exposure to the song, and many of them now have "South Carolina on Their Mind" and are coming to our State as vacationers and potential future residents Now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

Official state song designated

SECTION 1 "South Carolina On My Mind" is designated as an official state song to help inspire pride in our State and improve the quality of life among all South Carolinians, and to promote the image of South Carolina beyond our borders by further developing tourism and industry through the attraction of vacationers, prospective investors, and new residents

Time effective

SECTION 2 This act shall take effect upon approval by the Governor

Lyricsedit

At the foot hills of the Appalachian chain, Down through the rivers, to the coastal plain, There's a place that I call home, And I'll never be alone, Singin' this Carolina love song

I've got South Carolina on my mind Remembering all those sunshine Summertimes, And the beauty of the Autumn when the leaves turn to gold Touches my heart and thrills my soul to have South Carolina on my mind, With those clean snow-covered mountain Wintertimes And the white sands of the beaches and those Carolina peaches, I've got South Carolina on my mind

I'm grown now with a family of my own In a place that all my kids are callin' home And I love this life I'm livin', And thank God for all He's givin', and my heart sings this Carolina love song

I've got South Carolina on my mind Remembering all those sunshine Summertimes, And the beauty of the Autumn when the leaves turn to gold Touches my heart and thrills my soul to have South Carolina on my mind, With those clean snow-covered mountain Wintertimes And the white sand of the beaches and those Carolina peaches, I've got South Carolina on my mind I've got South Carolina on my mind I've got South Carolina On my mind
