CARRY PLENTY SAND.
I observed a locomotive in the railroad yard one day,
It was waiting in the round-house, where locomotives stay;
It was panting for the journey, it was coaled and fully manned
And it had a box the fireman was filling full of sand.
It appears that locomotives cannot always get a grip,
On their slender iron pavement, 'cause the wheels are apt to slip;
When they reach a slippery spot, their tactics they command,
And to get a grip upon the rail, they sprinkle it with sand.
It’s about,this way with travel all along life’s slippery track,
If your load is rather heavy and you’re always slipping back;
So, if a common locomotive you completely understand,
You’ll provide yourself in starting with a good supply of sand.
If your track is steep and hilly and you have a heavy grade,
If those who’ve gone before have the rails quite slippery made;
If you ever reach the summit of the upper table land,
You'll find you have to do it with the liberal use of sand.
If you strike some frigid weather and discover at your cost,
That you’re liable to slip on a heavy coat of frost,
Then some prompt, decided action will be called into demand,
And you'll slip ’way to the bottom if you haven’t any sand.
You can get to any station that is on life’s schedule seen,
If there’s fire beneath the boiler of ambition’s strong machine;
You’ll reach a place called Flushtown at a speed that’s simply grand,
If for all the slippery places you’ve a good supply of sand.
