Representative Text

1 Oh, de Brewer’s big hosses, comin’ down de road,
Totin’ all around ole Lucifer’s load;
Dep step so high, an’ dey step so free,
But dem big hosses can’t run over me!

Refrain:
Oh, no! boys, oh, no!
De turnpike’s free wherebber I go;
I’se a temperance ingine, don’t you see,
And the Brewer’s big hosses can’t run over me!

2 Oh, de licker men’s actin’ like dey own dis place,
Livin’ on de sweat ob de po’r man’s face.
Dey’s fat and sassy as dey can be,
But dem big hosses can’t run over me! [Refrain]

3 Oh, I’ll harness dem hosses to de temp’rance cart,
Hit ‘em wide a gad to gib ‘em a start,
I’ll teach ‘em how for to haw and gee,
For dem big hosses can’t run over me! [Refrain]
