lyrics

The hammer swings
The silver sings
And here they bring the line to tap the rails
In all impressed
From East to West
A cast of thousands wearing Iron, feathers, top hat and tails
For all the people passing by the windows
And all the people running by the side
No sooner steam arise - the whistle's blowing
So many climb aboard to take the ride.
On broken ground
They stood around
Carving trails in the desert setting
A letter signed
That you will find
Behind the picture of the Mountain Wedding
and buried inside (“promontory bride”)
For all the people passing by the windows
And all the people running by the side
No sooner cinder flows,
the cash vault's blowing
In riding up – will they escape their ties?
Throwing fool's gold out of the windows
Throwing silver pieces by the side
The crowds are growing,
the safe floor’s showing
Too many, all aboard, and take the prize
