I Met An Engine On A Hill

Charlie Zahm sings the tune. And provides a little bit of history.

Youtube address: HpHaxw4WzuE

Tune: Yankee Doodle


I met an engine on a hill,
All hot and broken hearted,
And this is what he said to me
As up the hill he started:
I think I can, I think I can,
At any rate I'll try
I think I can, I think I can,
At any rate I'll try.

He reached the top and looking back
To where he stood and doubted,
He started on the downward track
And this is what he shouted:
I knew I could, I knew I could,
I never should have doubted (Repeat)

And so to all you Cubs and Scouts
Whenever you're downhearted,
Remember what the engine said
As up the hill he started:
I think I can, I think I can,
At any rate I'll try it.
And very soon you too will find
That you have gone and done it!
