Governor Robert D. Ray's Catchy Campaign Song
Listen to Governor Robert Ray's campaign jingle, sung by legendary performer Marilyn Maye using a rewritten version of "Step to the Rear (and Let a Winner Lead the Way)."
Now in a General Election fight, Ray's campaign team deployed a secret weapon over the radio. Des Moines native and popular singer Marilyn Maye was hired to belt out a catchy new campaign theme. It was an immediate hit.
Hi, this is Marilyn Maye saluting a real winner for governor, Robert D. Ray.
Well everyone knows, it's time to step to the polls
And let a winner lead the way
Go cast your vote and choose the man of today
It's Robert D. Ray!
Now I-O-Way is saying he is the best
Yes he'll pass every test
Elect him governor and see
Yes now is the time
Choose a man in his prime
He'll make Iowa climb, you'll agree
On election day vote Robert D. Ray
And let a leader show the way!
