The First Railroad

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
