About the Song

The song was composed and produced with the intent of being genuinely and uniquely “New Mexican”. The instrumentation and song approach is a blend of regional guitar style/technique and Native American flutes and percussion. The chorus pays homage to the state song “My Fair New Mexico” – while there is a melody similar to the state song at the beginning of the chorus, the melody is re-imagined over more modern chord changes. Also, it was important that the lyrics connected to the viewers and residents – and reflected where and how they live, and the things about New Mexico they love and are proud of.

LYRICS

There’s a reason that we live and love it here
Oh it’s
In the legends, in the music that we hear
And it’s
In the culture that we’ll honor through the years
For me… there’s no place I’d rather be
This is heaven this is my New Mexico
And it’s
So alive I feel it everywhere I go
And it’s
Why I’m not afraid to let my spirit show
Oh this place… is a part of you and me

I love it, you love it
So proud to be from here
And I just wanna shout it!!

You’re my New Mexico…
Yeah I love it just to wake up and to know that I’m a part of this
Oh Fair New Mexico…
This is where I call home and it’s the only place I wanna live
Don’t you feel it inside (whoa-Oooo)
Our New Mexican pride (whoa-Oooo)
Oh how I love you so
My Fair New Mexico….

There’s something special bout’ our corner of the world
Yeah it
Paints in colors like nowhere else on earth
Our People
Make us different yet the same with every turn
Roots run deep… in our friends and families

66 is the American drive
And there’s
Nothing bluer than the Western desert sky
It’s
Everything that’s good and beautiful and right
I’m so glad… that this is where I am

I love it, you love it
Nowhere I’d rather be
And it feels good to know it!!

You’re my New Mexico…
Yeah I love it just to wake up and to know that I’m a part of this
Oh Fair New Mexico…
This is where I call home and it’s the only place I wanna live
Don’t you feel it inside (whoa-Oooo)
Our New Mexican pride (whoa-Oooo)
Oh how I love you so
My Fair New Mexico….

I am New Mexican by choice
Forever and free
Cause this is where I’m meant to be..

You’re my New Mexico…
Yeah I love it just to wake up and to know that I’m a part of this
Oh Fair New Mexico…
This is where I call home and it’s the only place I wanna live
Don’t you feel it inside (whoa-Oooo)
Our New Mexican pride (whoa-Oooo)
Oh how I love you so
My Fair New Mexico…
