[Verse 1]
In a quaint old fashioned garden,
In a quaint old fashioned town,
‘Mid the roses pink and white and red
There blooms the rose I mean to wed;
Where the old Potomac’s flowing,
That is where I long to be,
And tomorrow I am going,
To the girl who waits for me.

[Chorus]
There’s a girl in the heart of Maryland,
With a heart that belongs to me,
As I told her of my love, the oriole above,
Sang from the old apple tree;
Then Maryland was Fairyland,
For she promised my bride she’d be,
There’s a girl in the heart of Maryland,
With a heart that belongs to me.

[Verse 2]
Set in the village church bells ringing,
Tell the organist to learn
That melody by Mendelssohn,
They play when they makes two folks one;
‘Cause tomorrow we’ll be married,
Oh! There’s one thing I forget,
Have the parson ready waiting,
At the church to tie the knot.

[Chorus]
