A Place Called Omaha


Omaha was developed
By a ferry company
It had so much potential
As many could plainly see

Laid out in 1854 originally
Curved around the Missouri river
A newspaper was created
So the news could be delivered

In eighteen fifty-five and six
A brutal winter settled in
Many losses at a Mormon camp
Healing had to begin

With the transcendental railroad
Omaha grew very rapidly
Today it is headquartered in Omaha
Still important as you can see

Don’t you just love history?
And geography is such a draw
I’ve enjoyed learning all about
About a Place called Omaha!

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
