    Ohio has quite a few steep areas. Much of the geology in the northern part of the state is shale and the rivers have cut quite steep paths through this. They’re not tall, but they are steep.

    Be Prepared is the Boy Scout motto. Cub Scouts have Do Your Best. And of course, Charlie Brown is too young to be in scouting.

The version as a march has the single note: e,g, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DK27j2CFrqc.
