SOUTHERN PACIFIC

Huntington sleeps in a house six feet long.

Huntington dreams of railroads he built and owned.

Huntington dreams of ten thousand, men saying: Yes, sir.


Blithery sleeps in a house six feet long.

Blithery dreams of rails and ties he laid.

Blithery dreams of saying to Huntington: Yes, sir.


Huntington,

Blithery, sleep in houses six feet long.
