SONG OF THE IRON-MEN

IT'S RAINING


| January/February 1953



The village congenial souls

R. D. 1, Kearney, Missouri

Let's go down to the village, and sit by the old box stove to live again in memory, the deeds of long ago.

IT'S SNOWING

Let's go down to the village congenial souls we'll see who remember how they plant and plow in the days that used to be.

IT'S SUNNY

Let's go down to the village, and sit on the bench in the sun and we'll recall, with one and all, the valorous deeds we've done.

No matter the wealthier now for us, who are on the last long mile; we would live it o'er at the village store, and roll back the years for awhile.
