Stompin' Tom Connors – Bridge Came Tumbling Down lyrics

Nineteen scarlett roses the chaplin spread around
In the waters of Berard Inlet in old Vancouver town
When the bridge came tumbling down
When the bridge came tumbling down

Nineteen men were drowned in June of 1958
In old Vancouver town
There were seventy-nine men working
To build this brand new bridge
To span the second and narrows
And connect up with the ridge
Till a big wind hit the bridge
And the bridge came tumbling down

And nineteen men were drowned
The medical corp couldn't be too sure of the rest of the men they found
In among the twisted girders one man realized
How last night he'd been dreaming and saw before his eyes
The big wind on the rise
And the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen steelmen drowned, and he saw the fright of the darkest night
In old Vancouver town

With frogmen in the water by the cutting torches glow
They fought to save the steelmen
From certain death below and pain we'll never know
When the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen men were drowned, and sixty more that came ashore
So thankful they were found

It often makes you wonder
In strength who has the edge
The longest steel beam structure
That spans the highest ridge
For the men that built the bridge
For the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen men were drowned
But the other men came back again
To lay the new beams down

Now if your ever crossing
This mighty bridge sublime
And nineteen scarlett roses pass before your mind
Remember and be kind
The bridge came tumbling down
Ansd nineteen men were drowned
So you could ride to the other side
Of old Vancouver town

So you could ride to the other side
Of old Vancouver town
