Wake up and put your uniform on
Hardshell hat and heavy duty gloves
And please be careful, darling
Building bridges is a brave man work

You know one day you'll be in history
People will walk upon the steel you mold
Things like these they just don't fall apart
No matter how fragile and how old

And our children will carry on
What you started here today
And I know everyone involved
Will have nothing but good things to say
About the monument you built for them

Don't worry there, it's an easy job
And I'll be home before you know
All I need is my kerosene torch
With your love I can't go wrong

From where I stand I see the sun come up
Across the water it filled my soul
I tell you dear the bridge is strong
Someday people will see what I saw
