Went out west chasing the sun
But ended up in Oregon
They’ve got trees and damn good beer, and I don’t care
It’s a cloudy fifty one

No sales tax, no pumping gas here in the five o’ three
The original digits
We’ve all got Prefontaine to remember
And damn we’ve got your bridges!

So raise your glass and drink it down (Portland, Oregon)
To a town like no other (Portland, Oregon)
Most breweries, greenest trees you’ll ever see (Portland, Oregon)
Here in Portland, my brother

With more per capita strip clubs than Vegas
And the biggest bookstores, alright
A couple thousand naked bicycle riders, and
Voodoo Donuts all night

We’ve got the nation’s largest park in a city and
Socks with sandals in the rain
Greenest city in this world aside from Reykjavik
And that’s pretty fuckin’ green!

So raise your glass and drink it down (Portland, Oregon)
To a town like no other (Portland, Oregon)
Most breweries, greenest trees you’ll ever see (Portland, Oregon)
Here in Portland, my brother

Washington Park, Pioneer Square
Saturday Market, you’ll find me there
And when I die they will carry me
Over the streets of Portland

And for now we’ll go on
Never chasing the sun
And for now we’ll stand strong
Until our day comes
Then we'll break all these bonds
And we'll rise up as one
We will carry the song
Until our day’s won!

So raise your glass and drink it down (Portland, Oregon)
To a town like no other (Portland, Oregon)
Most breweries, greenest trees you’ll ever see (Portland, Oregon)
Here in Portland, my brother

Went out west, chasing the sun
But ended up in Oregon

Washington Park, Pioneer Square
Saturday Market, you’ll find me there
And when I die they will carry me
Over the streets of Portland
