When the Pay Car Comes Again.
Copyright, 1889, by W. I. Leggett.
Words by W. I. Leggett. Music by Mrs. Lizzie Leggett.

The men that run on the rail are the jolliest ones in our land;
They stand by the right to the last, obeying the word of command;
Their duty they do to the letter to-day, to-morrow the same;
If any a little bill owe you, the pay car is coming again.

Oh, the pay car is coming again, yes, the pay car is coming again;
It will give them much pleasure, and afford them some leisure,
When the pay car comes again.

Many dangers they have to encounter, many hardships they have to endure,
But they are really contented, their money, they know, that's sure;
To duty they go in all weather, they toil in snow or the rain;
Their courage is kept up by knowing the pay car is coming again. - Cho.

Many lives they have in their care, with millions of dollars at stake,
And how great the loss might be, if they an error should make.
The life they follow is a charm; some climb the ladder of fame,
While others keep working along, for the pay car's coming along.- Chorus.

Many have nice little homes, with dear ones under their care,
And joy it gives to their hearts to be again with them there.
They welcome the husband and father whenever he comes from his train;
And they all remember with pleasure the pay car is coming again.- Chorus.
