Hymn of Good Roads

An ode to D. Ward King’s innovation and others who worked tirelessly for good roads appeared in the April 24, 1913 Skidmore New Era:

Hymn of Good Roads

M. Albertus Cloverdell breaks forth in to song to the following effect:

When the smiles of spring appear,
Drag the roads;
When the summer time is here,
Drag the roads;
When the corn is in the ear;
In the winter cold and drear;
Every season in the year;
Drag the roads!

Would you do the proper thing?
Drag the roads.
Set the system on the wing;
Drag the roads.
Give the drag a lively swing.
Toss the laurel wreath to King;
Hats off! Everybody sing
Drag the roads!
