New Mexico land of Enchantment

 

New Mexico land of enchantment

Land of Enchantment; Land of the Cactus; The Sunshine State;
The Land of Opportunity; The Land of Heart’s Desire

New Mexico designated Land of Enchantment by Michael Martin Murphey (a resident of Taos, NM) as the official state ballad in 1989.

Lyrics

I met a lady in my drifting days
I quickly fell under the spell of her loving ways
A rose in the desert I loved her so
In the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

As we watched the sunset by the Rio Grande
A mission bell rang farewell she took my hand
She said “come back amigo no matter where you go
“To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

From her arms I wandered, far across the sea
I often heard her gentle words haunting me
“Come back amigo, I miss you so
“To the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico

Thank you, William, for sending me this picture.
