Here is an additional verse to The Big Rock Candy Mountain, which I _THINK_ I got from THE PEOPLE'S SONGBOOK.

Last verse:

Jack rolled his eyes up to the skies
And he said to the bum, named Sandy,
"I'm weary, I'm starved, I want a steak to carve,
Where is that gol-durn candy?
I'll hike no more, for my feet are sore,
I'll never reach that fountain!
I wanna be a home guard, with a union card
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain!"

Usual chorus.
