Kitzmiller on the Potomac, page 2

Who with his boy, cars the shook
That Browning ships from Blaine;
There's Alf Duvall of Preston
Who does the cooper work
He's never known to spoil a job
And never known to shirk.
Now if you're fond of joking
And want to laugh all through
Just call and have a social chat
With our Dutchman "Scotty" Pew.
You can look for him at the depot
For it's there he hangs out,
But if his time is not engaged
You will find him angling trout.
Nor do we lack a minister
The truth divine to tell
For Bro. Archie Hamill
Preaches long and well;
He has lived here for quite a while
And indeed we hope he'll stay
To labor for the good of souls
And never ask for pay.
We also furnish four good men
To dig Elk Garden coal
And they'll be found at their post
When 'Jemmie calls the roll'
There's E. G. Blackburn and Seymour Welch
As to their work they go
Accompanied by Jim Hickey
And our old friend George Gano.
We have to have a gang of hands
To keep the road in shape
So Billy Frazee and his men
Are working all the while;
They like to work upon the road
And keep the slips away;
