Railroad Song

In eighteen hundred and forty-one
The National Railway was begun,
The National Railway was begun,
Working on the Railroad.


Working on the railroad.

In 1892 
Looking round for something to do.

In 1893
The National Railway called on me.

In 1894 
I found my back was mighty sore.

In 1895 
I found myself more dead than alive.

In 1896 
I sat on a pack of dynamite sticks.

In 1897 
I found myself on the way to heaven.

In 1898 
I landed at the pearly gate.

In 1899 
A-sailing on the clouds sublime.

In 1890-10 
I started to work all over again.
