They wanted a place to live and sing
Where life would be happy, without a sting,
Where gardens would grow and blossoms thrive
And the beauty of friendship keep alive.
So the railroad came, and a station set.
And the postman chosen to not forget that mall sent on to Delmar town
Was for Delaware, Maryland, up or down!
All around the orchards grew,
And peaches flavored with sun and dew
Brought the buyers from everywhere
To Delmar Maryland-Delaware:
And the shops and mills and stores in time
Brought workers skilled and tried and strong
To build up here In a friendly clime
A Delmar smile and a Delmar song.
Friends and neighbors, church and school,
Brick yards, mills and the Golden Rule
Here they flourish In peace and love
With Maryland-Delaware skies above
Here life blends In a Christian way
With things men dream of when they pray
With joy and gladness and helpful strife
In toll for the building of better life
