The CCCs

Robert L. Robeson, NACCCA National Secretary, CCCMan, Company 1852, Camp F-24-WY, Camp Wapiti, Wyoming

The CCC's

When you come to the end of a perfect day

And you still have that long trek to camp,

And your legs are tired, your breath is short,

And your feet are cold and damp.

And you think back to the good old days

When you were young and free.

When you had no special task to do,

And life was one long spree.

Yet I wonder how well off we really are,

As we leave the boy for the man,

We get three meals, clothes and a bed,

All furnished by Uncle Sam.

Maybe Those mountains are hard to climb,

Those tree so hard to cut.

But the air is pure, the water fine,

And we're climbing right out of the rut.

As we come to the end of another day,

Let's all smile and be glad.

For besides helping ourselves, you see,

We are helping mother and dad.

----- R.L. Robeson
