Technically, it's a triad, and it straddles a cadence, but you could 
always use "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad", 3rd phrase into 4th phrase:
"Can't you hear the whistle blowin'; rise up so early in the morn") 
=Phrygian cadence in the relative minor (V/vi)
Next phrase starts on IV: "Can't you hear the captain callin'...."
