A little Ford had a big Dodge Cummins to pull. He was pulling very well till he come to a big hill. But then no matter how hard he tried he keep spinning his tires. He could not move the Cummins, he pulled and he pulled. He spit and he sputtered.
He backed up and started pulling again. He chirped and he chirped! But no the Cummins would not go up the Hill. Finally, he left the Cummins and went up the hill alone. Do you think he quit working? No, indeed! He was going for back up. “Surely I can find someone to help me,” he thought.
Over the hill and up the road went the Lil Ford. Clunk, clunk! Clunk! Chunk! Clunk, clunk! Clunk! Very soon he saw a big Duramax sitting on the side of the road. He looked very big and powerful. He perked beside, he looked up and said; “Will you give me a hand over the hill with this Cummins? It’s too heavy and powerful, I can’t get it over.”
The Lil Ford was sorry for asking a Chevy, but, he went on, Beep, beep! Beep, beep! Beep, beep! Beep, beep! Soon he came to another big Duramax sitting on the side of the road. He was smoking and smoking, as if he was about to blow up. “That big Duramax may still help me,” thought the Lil Ford. He pulled up beside him and asked, “Could you help me get this Cummins up the hill? It’s too heavy and powerful I can’t get it over.”
The other big Duramax answered, “I have just driven in from far, far away. Didn’t you see how many miles I drove? Can’t you find someone else to help you this time?” “I’ll try,” said the Lil Ford, and off he went. Beep, beep! Beep, beep! Beep, beep! After a little while, he came to a Lil Ford just like himself.
He pulled up beside him and said, “Could you help me over the hill with my Cummins? It is too heavy and powerful, I can’t get it over.” “Yes, anytime,” said this Lil Ford. I’ll be glad to help you, if I can.” So the Lil Ford started back to where the Cummins had been sitting.
Both Lil Fords went to pull the Cummins up the hill, one pulling and one pushing. Chirp, Chirp, Chirp off they go! Slowly the Cummins started to move. Slowly they pulled it up the steep hill. As they pulled, each Lil Ford began to sing, “I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I- know-I-can! I-know-I-can! I-know-I-can! –” and they did!
Very soon they made it over the hill and were going down to the bottom. Now they were on flat ground and the Lil Ford could pull the Cummins himself. So he thanked the other Lil Ford who had come to help him, and said good- bye. He went happily on his way singing...
