Written during Steel Bridge Songfest 2006


It goes up, it goes down
It goes up and then again it goes down
And it feels like the whole damn town
Are honking their horns cuz it's taking so long

I'm a steel bridge tender (4x)

Well the boats gather round
Yeah the boats they all gather around
But I hold all the power
So I only let them go through once an hour

I'm a steel bridge tender (4x)

Everyone says she's old
Everyone says she's old
I don't know but I've been told

I'm a steel bridge tender (4x)
