Cariboo Road
Folk Song from British Columbia, Canada
Collected by Phil Thomas and Adapted by Mr. I


This song is available on Mr. I and Gary Q's In Canada.

Here comes Henry Currie, he’s always in a hurry,
teaming up the cariboo road.
He makes his horses go, through the dust and through the snow
teaming up the cariboo road.
you should see him sprintin’ to the ball at Clinton
teaming up the cariboo road.
he makes the ladies prance, just like his horses dance
teaming up the cariboo road

Chorus:
When you hear that whip a’poppin
you can bet he’s got a load
When you hear that sweet voice singing
stand up rowdy on the cariboo road.

The driver’s on the deck with a rag around his neck
teaming up the cariboo road
While the swamper in the stable, makes sure the teams are able.
teaming up the cariboo road
When the roads are in a mire, then the freighters earn their hire
teaming up the cariboo road
but they can beat the weather when they all pull together
teaming up the cariboo road.

Chorus

In a wink and a shake, we’ll be up in William’s lake
teaming up the cariboo road
and we’ll sure be feelin’ swell once we get to Quesnel
teaming up the cariboo road
no more muck , no more dirt and i can finally change my shirt
teaming up the cariboo road
And the horses they can rest , cause they’ve sure done their best,
teaming up the cariboo road.

Chorus

YIP!
