Down among the Shepherd of the Hills
On a vacation whirl,
Don't fail to call on Sammy Lane
And the new Missouri Girl.
Sammy, she looks after all the mails
That come from far and near.
The Missouri, she lends a hand
To fill the crowd with cheer.
She tells you she will make a date
When you cannot go with Sam.
We hold the record on the lake
From Branson to the Dam.

bransonboat05.jpg (43879 bytes) 2.  Before the bridge. There is no indication on this card about the location, but I bought it with a collection of Branson cards.  On the back someone wrote, "Branson area." gc

bransonboat06.jpg (76945 bytes) 4.  "Boat Landing, Branson MO."  In the right background is the Sadie H., sister ship to the Sammy Lane mail boat.  On right is the Lady of the Lake.  I don't see a name on the large central boat, but the life buoy says "Sammy Lane Boat Line."  It is probably the Sammy Lane. gc
