Maine Lumberjacks          101
20     He said, "You need not leave this camp
Unless you want to go; For I will give you a good long job And pay you with my dough.
21      "For if you can sling the catgut
Like you ride old Dunn, You're the man I've been looking for Since the year one."
22     And he could throw the lariat
And did n't do it slow; He could catch these fore-uns, Nine out of ten for a go.
23     And when the herd stampeded,
He was Johnny-on-the-spot;
He could get the herd to milling
Like the stirring of the pot.
24     And there is one thing
And a sure thing too That weVe learned out of school, That all educated town-men are n't dam-fools.
