Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Railroad Song


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

CHORUS:

Patsi-atsi-oree-a
Patsi-atsi-oree-a
Patsi-atsi-oree-a
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.
