Liner Notes: 

Not exactly following Wikipedia Randomness, but this did pop up in my scrolling, and I live beside this road.
Canada does not have the centuries of history that other countries have. At least not yet, but I am willing to bet the Canadian history books will be edited in the near future, to include many histories that were untold before the settlers came here.

Lyrics: 

Penetanguishene Road (From Wikipedia)
[Verse 1]
Highway 93 runs from the city of Barrie
Through the country side to town of Midland
Connecting Lake Simcoe with Georgian Bay
Penetanguishene Road

[Chorus]
Penetanguishene Road
One of the oldest in Ontario.
Penetanguishene Road
dating back more than two hundred years,

[Verse 2]
It played a role in the British victory
in the War of 1812,
And was an overland route to transport goods
When the lakes were frozen and shelved.

[Verse 3]
Not too long ago, in 2014,
it was renamed the Sarah Burke Memorial Highway,
in memory of the free style ski pioneer
So we remember her spirit al ways

[Verse 4]
I like to drive on Penetanguishene Road
Ad mire the farmland and colourful forests
I buy fresh produce from the farm gate stands there
And once more I will sing the chorus.

[Chorus]
Penetanguishene Road
One of the oldest in Ontario.
Penetanguishene Road
dating back more than two hundred years,
dating back more than two hundred years,

Nice historic story. I like the cadence of this and the changes are clean clear and interesting. Lovely bounce, one to sing a long!

A little Schoolhouse rock feel - which I love! Great flow and movement - a fun one to sing along with.

Wow, what a mouthful of syllables for your title! But you handle it well and have some other clever rhymes here to match. Nice research that went into this.
