Here's the story of Rutherford Hayes

Here's the story of Rutherford Hayes
Lucy & RuthyWho ended our Reconstruction phase.

Hayes was Ohio's favorite son
Who took an election he never won.

The dirty election of Seventy-Six
Was fixed with many political tricks.

His wife was nicknamed Lemonade Lucy
'Cause her White House was never boozy.

Hayes reformed the civil service
Which made his enemies rather nervous.

They love the man down Paraguay way;
They named a state Presidente Hayes.

So that's our nineteenth president
Who made big changes in government.
