Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


National Railroad


Chorus:
Patsi-atsi-oree-ai. Patsi-atsi-oree-ai. Patsi-atsi-oree-ai.
Working on the railroad

In eighteen hundred and ninety one
The National railroad was begun
The National railroad was begun
Working on the railroad.

1892 Looking around for something to do
1893 National railway called on me
1894 I found my back was mighty sore
1895 Found myself more dead than alive
1896 I sat non a box of dynamite sticks
1897 I found myself on the way to heaven
1898 I landed at the pearly gates
1899 A-sailing on the clouds sublime
1890-10 Started up all over again

Sing chorus between each verse. Clap time if you have a big
mouth or helpers, otherwise, snap fingers.
