The Skalkaho Road


Pack up your wagon and get ready to go
The sun's coming up, don't be moving so slow
The sky's clouding over and it's fixing to snow
As we head down the Skalkaho Road

Bushels of beans and a keg full of nails
Powder, lead and a packet of mail
A box full of horseshoes, a barrel of ale
All bound for the Skalkaho Road

hey ho boys and we're on our way
18 miles yet to cover today
Four yoke of oxen and a heavy load
Bound for the Skalkaho, for the Skalkaho Road

I'm the best damn bullwhacker you can believe
I can drive these mountains with the greatest of ease
and pull into Hamilton as slick as you please
Coming down off the Skalkaho Road

hey ho boys and we're on our way
18 miles yet to cover today
Four yoke of oxen and a heavy load
Bound for the Skalkaho, for the Skalkaho Road

The trail though Lolo is easy and wide
But it's a long way to go once you cross the divide
I can save two weeks but it's a hell of a ride
Coming down off the Skalkaho Road

hey ho boys and we're on our way
18 miles yet to cover today
Four yoke of oxen and a heavy load
Bound for the Skalkaho, for the Skalkaho Road
