1. From England, from Scotland, from Ireland we came,
Across the deep ocean, our dream to proclaim.
A new life, a new land, our aim was the same,
We’re Odoms in America. We’re proud of our name.
2. Virginia we landed, we made our way west,
Raising our children, to give of their best.
We fought for our freedom, with sweat and with blood,
We pioneered America. This land that we love.
3. We’re gathered together, a body of one.
Waving our banner, in work and in fun.
We’re tracing our history, our goal is the same,
We’re Odoms in America. May God bless our name.
