Teaming Up the Cariboo Road Here comes Henry Currie, he's always in a hurry Teaming up the Cariboo road He makes his horses go through the dust and through the snow Teaming up the Cariboo road You should see him sprintin' to the ball at Clinton Teaming up the Cariboo road He makes his horses dance just like the ladies prance Teaming up the Cariboo road cho: When you hear that whip a-popping You bet he's got a load When you hear that sweet voice singing Stand up rowdy on the Cariboo road Pete Egan as a rule to his horses he is cruel... He beats them with a rail puts fire in their tail... Old Pete can look so wicked when you ask him for a ticket... At the sight of half a dollar he will grab you by the collar.. Well the driver's on the deck with a rag around his neck... While the swamper in the stable makes sure the teams are able. When the roads are in a mire then the freighters earn their hire... But they can beat the weather when they all pull together... Parody of "Climbing up the Golden Stairs". 1.1 and 2.1, 2.2 collected by Phil Thomas (with chorus); rest written by PJT and in his Songs of the Pacific Northwest. JB apr96
