Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
The way my mum sang it was....

Sambo joined the railway, in a green and purple coat,
He tried to clean the railway lines with a piece of mouldy soap.
He saw an engine coming, he stood right in it's track.
He rolled up his sleeves and slapped his knees,
and pushed the engine back.

More work for the undertaker, another little job for the tombstone maker.
Down at the local cemetry, on a tombstone, you will see,
'Sambo, the brave and free'
