Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
this is the last verse as I remember it when we used to sing it in class some 35 years ago. but I had no idea how many versions there are & all the politically correct ones as well.

Sambo was a naughty boy for him there was no hope, he had to scrub the railway line with a rusty bar of soap. Along came the engine whistling down the track, sambo rolled his sleeves up & tried to push it back

Bang

More work for the undertaker, another little job for the tombstone maker in the local cemetery. On a tombstone you will see sambo that's me
