  1. I've never heard this song in my life as a Pennsylvanian but jeez, if this ain't one of the best songs I've heard..

  2. After living here for 7 years, this is the first time I and my kids hear the state song and we save it for future, thanks!

  3. I had no idea this song existed. I’m disappointed in my self. Also hello everyone else. I very rarely find people from Pennsylvania online

  4. I'm from Upper Darby now in Upper Chichester. I've been a Delcoian my whole life. From Saturday mornings at Lindvilla Orchards in Media to Friday nights at The Cup in Springfield.

  5. Love Pennsylvania, but it could be better. The lyrics could be the same, just to a different tune. Maybe to like an 80s pop song or something.

  6. Northern Appalachia has no greater beauty than the woods of the great state of Pennsylvania its still free and open wilderness here and we should cherish it

  7. Unfortunately I have been living in West Virginia for the past 16 years, but I will always be a Pennsylvanian.

  8. My dad went to Pennsylvania in the 80’s and told me he met some of the most kind and welcoming people there. Hope to be able to visit for myself soon. Grettings from Denmark 🇺🇸🇩🇰

  13. I’ve lived in Pennsylvania my whole life and hadn’t heard this song until I found it probably a year ago and failed to learn it on piano until last night (January 31, 2021).
