The Handcart Song

 


Lyrics

  1. When pioneers moved to the West,

    With courage strong they met the test.

    They pushed their handcarts all day long,

    And as they pushed they sang this song:

    For some must push and some must pull,

    As we go marching up the hill;

    So merrily on our way we go

    Until we reach the Valley-o.
