Everything comes to old John D
No matter what happens, there
seems to be
Something in it for John, that's
plain,
To swell his pile for a day of rain
When the coal oil lamp went out'
. of style
We said to ourselves, "We're free
awhile
From the mighty clutches of
, Stan dard Oil
And old John D. won't get -his
spoil" - ,
But then came autoes upon the;
scene,
Using up oceans of gasoline;
And the motor pump and the
motor plow,
To lessen the sweat of the farm-
ers brow.
And locomotives began to' burn ,,
The oil that the women had come
to spupr:
And now they're oiling the roads'
for dust,
And it's all great dope for the
petrol trust.
And so it goes from sea to sea;
Everything comes to old John D,-
