No fancy long-tailed Sunday coat or proper satin tie
Need grace my grave – or fragrant flowers perfume me when I die.

Just blow a whistle over me – don’t tuck it in for burying.
But give it to an engine man that it go on a carrying.

Steam engine joy – Mt. Pleasant way;
And I shall go – still tarrying.
And I shall go – still tarrying.
