|We were an eager 44
When we set out on "The Trail."
With Captain Tom and Captain Don
All knew we could not fail
We stood beneath "the Arch" awhile,
And then we headed West
To council sites, museums, forts
It's hard to choose the best
From Tom and Don and local guides
We certainly learned a lot,
In shops we found great gifts and books
That all, of course, we bought.
Phil safely drove us many miles
Just as our trip was planned.
Now each of us feels greater pride
For this our own dear land.
