Maine Lumberjacks             19
And a lumbering we'll go, so a lumbering will go,
0! we'll range the wild woods over while a lumbering we go,
3     When you pass through the dense city,
and pity all you meet, To hear their teeth chattering
as they hurry down the street; In the red frost-proof flannel
we 're incased from top to toe, While we range the wild woods over, and a lumbering we go; And a lumbering we'll go, so a lumbering will go, 0! we'll range the wild woods over while a lumbering we go.
4     You may boast of your gay parties,
your pleasures, and your plays, And pity us poor lumbermen
while dashing in your sleighs; We want no better pastime
than to chase the buck and doe; 0! we'll range the wild woods over, and a lumbering we will go; And a lumbering we'll go, so a lumbering will go, 0! we'll range the wild woods over while a lumbering we go.
