Great American Railway


In eighteen hundred and sixty-one
The American Railway was begun,
The American Railway was begun
The Great American Railway.
CHORUS:-
Patsy-atsy-or-ee-ay,
Patsy-atsy-or-ee-ay,
Patsy-atsy-or-ee-ay,
The Great American Railway.
In eighteen hundred and sixty-two
I found myself with nothing to do,
I found myself with nothing to do
Beside the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-three
The overseer accepted me,
The overseer accepted me
For working on the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-four
My hands were tired and my feet
were sore,
My hands were tired and my feet
were sore
From working on the Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-five
I found myself more dead than alive,
I found myself more dead than alive
From work on the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-six
I happened to tread on some dynamite
sticks,
I happened to tread on some dynamite
sticks
While working on the Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-seven
I found myself half way to heaven,
I found myself half way to heaven
Above the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-eight
I found my way through the Golden Gate
I found my way through the Golden Gate
Above the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-nine
A Cherub's harp and wings were mine,
A Cherub's harp and wings were mine
Above the American Railway.
CHORUS
In eighteen hundred and sixty-ten
If you want any more you can sing
it again,
If you want any more you can sing
it again
About the American Railway.
CHORUS
