Over the mountains, over the Rockies
Over the valleys they went.
Men of valour and courage were sent.
Trail blazers, construction workers and labourers
The tracklayers in tent’s
**Six miles only in the day was spent**
An idea an inventor it took only one man
An engineer with a great plan
Innovative determination with great challenges
Over the land
First players and mapmakers they did span
Rock movers construction workers shift
Campers made up the crew
The very first railroad the Canadian Pacific went through
