"They used to tell me I was building a dream"
"When there was earth to plow or guns to bear / I was always there right on the job"
"Why should I be standing in line / Just waiting for bread?"
"Once I built a railroad, now it's done / Brother, can you spare a dime?"
"Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell / Full of that Yankee-Doodly-dum / Half a million boots went sloggin' through Hell / And I was the kid with the drum"
