“Wonderful Watford”


"Wonderful, wonderful Watford, Where the Little Missouri flows, We're proud of all our Norwegians And all that makes it so. You can ride o'er the plains and the coulees... And still be in wonderful Watford, The most wonderful place that I know."


I strongly suspect that the author of this piece never set foot outside North Dakota!

The Little Missouri is a tributary of the Missouri River, which is by no means little in North Dakota. - RBW
