In the days of long ago, in the town of Owego,
The brave and noble Indian made his home.
And with paints of red and blue, he would stain his face anew,
Whenever through the valley he would roam.
Long years may come and pass away, but we shall still be true.
To the banner of the OFA, the flag of red and blue
