The Badger Drive - text

playlist

There is one class of men in this country
That never is mentioned in song
But now that their trade is advancing
They'll come out on top before long
They say that our sailors have danger
And likewise our warriors bold
But there's none know the life of a driver
What he suffers with hardship and cold

With their pike poles and peavies
And bateaus and all
They're sure to drive out in the spring
That's the time
With the caulks on their boots
As they get on the logs
And it's hard to get over their time

Bill Dorothey he is the manager
And he's a good man at the trade
And when he's around seeking drivers
He's like a train going down grade
But still he's a man that's kindhearted
On his word you always depend
And there's never a man that works with him
But likes to go with him again

With their pike poles and peavies
And bateaus and all
They're sure to drive out in the spring
That's the time
With the caulks on their boots
As they get on the logs
And it's hard to get over their time

I tell you today home in London
The Times it is read by each man
But little they think of the fellows
That drove the wood on Mary Ann
For paper is made out of pulpwood
And many things more you may know
And long may our men live to drive it
Upon Paymeoch and Tomjoe

With their pike poles and peavies
And bateaus and all
They're sure to drive out in the spring
That's the time
With the caulks on their boots
As they get on the logs
And it's hard to get over their time

The drive it is just below Badger
And everything is working grand
With a jolly good crew of picked drivers
And Ronald Kelly in command
For Ronald's the boss on the river
And he is one man that's alive
He drove the wood off Victoria
Now he's out on the main river drive

With their pike poles and peavies
And bateaus and all
They're sure to drive out in the spring
That's the time
With the caulks on their boots
As they get on the logs
And it's hard to get over their time

So now to conclude and to finish
I hope that ye all will agree
In wishing success to all Badger
And the A.N.D. Company
And long may they live for to flourish
And continue to chop, drive and roll
And long may the business be managed
By Bill Dorothy and Mr. Cole

With their pike poles and peavies
And bateaus and all
They're sure to drive out in the spring
That's the time
With the caulks on their boots
As they get on the logs
And it's hard to get over their time
