NATIONAL ILLINOIS DAY


NATIONAL PEARL HARBOR REMEMBRANCE DAY


NATIONAL COTTON CANDY DAY



Illinois, Everly Brothers, 1968


Clean Prairie winds blow from Rockford to Cairo
Over the cornfields that gleam in the sun
And off in the east glow, the lights of Chicago
When daylight has ended and night has begun
In Illinois, Illinois


The skyline, the stockyard
The gold coast, the grain fields
Chicago, the giant that leads all the rest
Chicago where trains roll, into the station
The heart of the nation, the start of the West


In Illinois, Illinois


In Illinois, Illinois blue haze of winter
Hangs over the Prairie
Feel the soft winds of spring
Chase the chill from the air
Bright August mornings


140 and the warm summer rainfall
On brisk autumn days
With a harvest to share
In Illinois, Illinois, Illinois, Illinois
