“The Arkansas Traveler” was the state song of Arkansas from 1949 to 1963; it has been the state historical song since 1987. The music was composed in the 19th century by Colonel Sanford C. ‘Sandy’ Faulkner (1806–1874); the current official lyrics were written by a committee in 1947 in preparation for its naming as the state song.
