With its ten or fifteen bag on
Comes a-jerkin’ and a-joltin’ down the dusty, limestone street,

Sixty bushels for the Bank; slide along!

And your very fingers shakin’
With the heavin’, heavin’, heavin’, in the blarsted, blazin’ sun;
And the agent finds the spots out
And takes all his sample lots ...
