...a little child strolled onto the track and filled them all with dread.
"MyGod" the hoghead shouted, as he slammed on on all the brakes, "I'll never stop this SP train, she aint got what it takes"
Up stepped this bold young fireman,..... he piled his loop around a pole that stood beside the tracks, then he tied the other end of it around that big smoke stack.
He jerked that train clear off the track and caused an awful wreck,
the fireman laid there on the track with the engine on his neck.
We will all remember that 45th of May for there were many brave young hearts all filled fear that day, they buried him by the wayside where the prairie winds blow wild
He killed 200 passengers but, thank God he saved the child.
