Hartland
Written by Tim Rowe, Evie Rowe, Faith Mabee, Jennifer Mabee, Nick Berry, Kalin McClary and Matthew Wiers

I want to go to a small town
A small town in Maine

Where the Sebasticook flows,
and life continues even in snow

Tuna salads on Fridays,
Weirdos at the library
But if you’re lucky you’ll spot the Blue Wizard
(Who’s actually purple)

Chorus:
Hartland, Hartland its our town
Its fun all around

There’s a lake and a river too,
maybe a moose will come into view

Herons and drakes on Great Moose lake,
and Osprey fishing too.

If you’re quiet you may see
a moose or a deer, or a guy with a really long beard

Some call him sasquatch, some call him yeti,
but oh wait its just plain old Nick from the Library.

Chorus:
Hartland, Hartland its our town
Its fun all around

There’s a lake and a river too,
maybe a moose will come into view

200 years, 200 years
see you here and there every year

Etched in granite
Scrolled in ink
We wear our pride on leather,
Come to town, let’s get together
