Well, it's springtime in the valley on Magnolia Lane

It's the Augusta National and the master of the game

Who'll wear that green coat on Sunday afternoon

Who'll walk that eighteenth fairway singing this tune

Augusta... your dogwoods and pines

They play on my mind like a song

Augusta... it's you that I love

And it's you that I'll miss when I'm gone.


It's Watson, Byron Nelson, Demaret, Player and Snead

It's Amen Corner and it's Hogan's perfect swing

It's Sarazen's double eagle at the fifteenth in Thirty-Five

And the spirit of a Tiger that keeps it alive

Augusta... your dogwoods and pines

They play on my mind like a song

Augusta... it's you that I love

And it's you that I'll miss when I'm gone.


It's the legions of Arnie's army and the Golden Bear's throngs

And the wooden-shafted legend of Bobby Jones


Can I have the recipe for the Pimento Cheese spread?



Augusta National keeps the recipe for the pimento cheese spread a secret.
