The Lyrics

Dedicated to my homestate. "Nevada" refers to the city in Iowa, not the state, and it is pronounced Nuh-Vay-Duh
Ottumwa, Nevada, ooh I wanna take ya,
Altoona, and Pella, maybe even Tama.
Eldora, Toledo, baby why don't we go, Nevada.

North of Missouri, there's a place called Iowa.
That's where you wanna go, to go to Coral Ridge Mall.
Tractors in the land, walk on the side of the road for cans.
We'll be havin' some fun, at Altoona at Adventureland,
Here in Iowa.

Ottumwa, Nevada, ooh I wanna take ya, to
Altoona, and Pella, maybe even Tama.
Eldora, Toledo, baby why don't we go,
Ooh, I wanna take ya down to Iowa.
We'll go to Field of Dreams in Dyersville,
That's where we wanna go, right here in Iowa.

Waterloo, and Cedar Falls too.

We'll go out to see, the Cedar Rapids Library.
In the classrooms we learn, about the laws of gravity.
Don't have hurricanes, but we get a lot of rain.
We never have an earthquake, but the storms can be a real pain,
Right here in Iowa.

Ottumwa, Nevada, ooh I wanna take ya, to
Altoona, and Pella, maybe even Tama.
Eldora, Toledo, baby why don't we go,
Ooh, I wanna take ya down to Iowa.
We'll go to Field of Dreams in Dyersville,
That's where we wanna go, right here in Iowa.

Down in Ames, watch the Iowa State games.

Everybody knows,
A little state called Iowa.
Now if you wanna go
And watch some farm animals,
Go down to Iowa.

Ottumwa, Nevada, ooh I wanna take ya, to
Altoona, and Pella, maybe even Tama.
Eldora, Toledo, baby why don't we go,
Ooh, I wanna take ya down to Iowa.
We'll go to Field of Dreams in Dyersville,
That's where we wanna go, right here in Iowa.

(Repeat Chorus)
