Lighter Origins: State of Arkansas (46) RE: Origins: State of Arkansas 03 May 21

Charles F. Lummis, A Tramp Across America (1892), p. 29[referring to 1884]: "

"A fifty-verse song, which one of the section-men at White Horse [apparently in Colorado] sang, touched a responsive chord within:
        His bread was nothing' but corndodger, [sic]
                His beef you couldn't chaw,
        But he charged us fifty cents a meal,
                In the state of Arkansaw!"
