Second verse same as the first

Earlier this week I was the guest of the Maquoketa (Iowa) Rotary Club, which heard my presentation on Red Faber. It was a fun, community-oriented and attentive group.

Most impressive to me, however, was the members' singing. Well, not exactly their vocal ability. What impressed was their recall.

This club sings the second verse of "America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)."

I'd forgotten there even was a second verse.

In case you, too, have forgotten, click the link for the lyrics.

Thanks for a fun meeting, Maquoketa Rotarians!
