Merle Haggard

Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear;
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen.
Football's still the roughest thing on campus,
And the kids here still respect the college dean.
I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball
From his 1969 hit.  Oklahoma became the 46th state on this date in 1907.  About the best thing I can say about Oklahoma is that it's not Arkansas.  (Have you heard the joke about the Oklahoma native who moved from Missouri to Arkansas -- which raised the average IQ of both states?)
