All on an April Fool’s Day Sunday
Riding, riding we shall be
Homeward thru the waking spring
Clear ’cross Tennessee!
New leaves rising on the vine
and flowers simply everywhere,
never doubt the day was fine.
We rode as quickly as we dared!
April fools and flowers bold,
March is leaving like a lamb.
Knoxville, Nashville, Westward Ho!
(round the churchfolk traffic jams)
