Reel 271, Item 14
Brewer’s Big Horses
All the brewer's big horses coming down the road, Countin' all around ole Lucifer’s load.
Oh, the step so high and they step so free;
But them big horses can’t run over me.
Oh, no, boys, oh, no!
The turnpike’s free wherever I go;
I’se a temperance Injun, don’t you see?
But the great big horses can’t run over me.
Oh, the liquor man's act can’t let down this place;
Living on the sweat of a poor man’s face;
They’re fat and sassy as they can be,
But the brewer’s big horses can't run over me!
