MY HEART GOES TO GUAM

If I'd wander my way back to Guam
I'd sit and listen to those Island Palms
They'd say here begins America's day

I can see the lovely sunset at Tumon Bay
The ocean waves breaking over the reefs
There on the beach I think of my beliefs
Oh, beautiful Island of the Virgin Mary
Her footstep on the ocean I can carry

I honor the patriotic people living there
They'll always be a part of me as I share
I'll tell you of their struggle for freedom
In the Great War they'd find their wisdom

I felt the warm tropical air on my face
My view from a ridge of this mystic place
The rolling hills look so gentle and calm
Thinking is my way to go back to Guam.
