<p>McBride also described Ohio in a stellar light, using terms like &quot;majestic,&quot; &quot;beautiful,&quot; and &quot;lovely.&quot; In addition, He provided a more accurate portrayal of the state by referring to the state's industries, cities, and farmland, deleting MacDonald's lovers from the song.</p>
<pre style="font-size: 1.1em">I sailed away; Wandered afar; Crossed the mighty restless sea; <br />Looked for where I ought to be. <br />Cities so grand, mountains above, <br />Led to this land I love.<br /><br />CHORUS: <br /><br />Beautiful Ohio, where the golden grain<br />Dwarf the lovely flowers in the summer rain.<br />Cities rising high, silhouette the sky.<br />Freedom is supreme in this majestic land;<br />Mighty factories seem to hum in tune, so grand.<br />Beautiful Ohio, thy wonders are in view,<br />Land where my dreams all come true! </pre>
