Track Name: Bring Change
Lookin’ at a poster down at the general store
They are takin’ names they said they have room for just one more
It’s dangerous work so they say
I ain’t got no choice we got so many bills to pay

I won’t need my rowboat no more
Build a span going here from shore to shore
In days to come they will sing our praise
And no one will remember these rowboat days

Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around
Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around

I’m gonna shake a leg and get myself back home
And tell my friends and my kin just what I know
I never thought that we would live to see the day
Funny how fast time goes, it’s just slippin’ away

Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around
Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around

Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around
Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around
Refresh
This old town
And bring some change around
Track Name: Just Like Me
I drive a old Bronco, ‘73
A finer truck you’ll never see
It’s got no roof, it’s just out in the wind
They tell me I should trade it in
But it’s a fine old ride, and it’s just like me
Lacks a certain sensibility
They don’t know, they can’t see
That old truck is just like me

I got a old dog and it sleeps on the floor
And it walks outside and it sleeps some more
It don’t wanna leave, it keeps hangin’ around
Maybe I should put him down
But he’s my find old friend and he’s just like me
Lacks a certain sensibility
Someday that dog gonna be set free
Oh yeah, just like me

Well there’s a old bridge in my hometown
They say they wanna tear it down
When I go home I go outta my way
I drive that bridge over Sturgeon Bay
‘Cause it’s a fine old bridge, it’s just like me
Lacks a certain sensibility
I just wish that they could see
That old bridge is just like me

That old bridge is just like you and me
Track Name: I Got Love
I got a love
I got a time
Got so much
You can have some
I’ve got to give it all away
Holdin’ in don’t make it stay
I got a soul, deep and wide
Reaches to the other side
It’s not a trip, it’s just a ride
I got a soul that likes to fly
I got a song
Wanna sing for you
Sing along
If you want to
‘Cause you got love
And you got soul
Child that’s all you need to know

Don’t cry no tears
Of despair
You can fly
Anywhere
Anywhere
You want to
You’ve got my love
To carry you

I got a love
I got a time
Got so much
You can have some
Please take it all
All that you need
I got to give it all away before I leave
I got a love
I got a love
I got a love
I got a love
I got a love
Yeah
I got a love
Track Name: Hey Steel Bridge
Hey steel bridge
How are ya holdin’ up
Over the water
That I sail down
I see your high beams
Slowly rusting
But soon the paint trucks will come around
And the wheels keep rolling
Over your trestle
I’d like to thank you
For letting through my vessel

Hey steel bridge
Grey as the rainy sky
How many tons
What was the cost
How many stories
Have you witnessed
How many stories
Have become lost
Don’t, don’t you feel like you’re taken for granted
Standing like Atlas
Cemented in the mud
You do a job here
And that job ain’t done

Hey steel bridge
I gotta keep movin’ on
I ride across you
Sometime, someday
I know you’ll be here
There’s people that do care
If you hold up, we’ll all keep rollin’ on
If you hold up, we’ll all keep rollin’ on
Track Name: Steel Bridge Tender
It goes up
It goes down
It goes up and then again it goes down
And I’m waitin’ for the whole damn town
To start yellin’ at me that I’m takin’ too long

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender

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

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender

Everyone says I’m old
Everyone says I’m old
And I don’t know but I’ve been told

I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Steel bridge tender
I’m a steel bridge tender
Track Name: Clickety Clack
What the hell’s in the water in Sturgeon Bay
Where I come from, people try and get away
Where you come from, people always come back
Wanna hear that bridge goin’ clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Wanna hear that bridge goin’ clickety clack
Track Name: The Real Deal
You’ve got me deep in all the chaos I create
Waves are crashin’, reshapin’ the shore
I’ll never give myself the chance to hesitate
Because your solid embrace I can not ignore

Rise up
Every hour
Don’t stop
I’m feelin’ your power

The time for loving me is now
Just connect your heart and I’ll show you how

Stormy shadows over we
Drop the anchor steadily
Seeking shelter underneath
What an architect will live and breathe

Stream of pavement, bones of steel, tell me now just how to feel
And every time I hear the sound of thunder it becomes the real deal

Go drip on water I’ll be coastin’ above way up high
In the sky you might think I can fly
It’s just the beauty of livin’ life at ease
So put down your words and consider please

And just rise up
Every hour
Don’t stop
Bathe in the power

The time to love yourself is now
Just connect your heart and I’ll show you how

Stormy shadows over we
Drop the anchor steadily
Seeking shelter underneath
What an architect will live and breathe

Stream of pavement, bones of steel, tell me now just how to feel
And every time I hear the sound of thunder it becomes the real deal

Stormy shadows over we
Drop the anchor steadily
Seeking shelter underneath
What an architect will live and breathe
Stream of pavement, bones of steel, tell me now just how to feel
And every time I hear the sound of thunder it becomes the real deal
Track Name: Try To Explain It (Would If I Could)
Yeah that steel bridge has got me here
And here is where I am now
Might not be exactly where I wanna be
Things should work out anyhow

Two long hard years have passed me by
They really hollowed out my head
I can thank myself for bein’ here
But I’d rather thank the bridge instead

Well I guess I could try to explain it
But I’m not so sure that I should
Yeah I guess I could try to explain it
But I really don’t know if it would do any good

Yeah that steel bridge has got me here
Here is where I am now
Track Name: Steel Bridge Song
A fire ahead, a fire behind
and cool cool water runnin down below
A feeling so real, a bridge made of steel
that i can cross over, whichever way
i must go

Memories and anticipation
it's all a little fuzzy
it all goes by so fast
Memories and anticipation
maybe nothin stands forever
but it seems these beams
were meant to last

This bridge won't burn
though with every heartache
in defiance i have tried
This bridge won't burn
even when there's nothin
but fire on either side

A fire ahead, a fire behind
and cool cool water runnin down below
A feeling so real, a bridge made of steel
that i can cross over, whichever way
i must go

This bridge won't burn
though with every heartache
in defiance i have tried
This bridge won't burn
even when there's nothin
but fire on either side
Track Name: Steel Yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself

Steel yourself for the comin’ storm
Steel yourself ‘cause it won’t be long
Steel yourself in the things you do
Steel yourself and you might get through

Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself

They teach you when you’re just a kid
To sell yourself at the highest bid
Just as long as you get your price
The job you hate and the wife that’s nice

Steel yourself
Steel yourself

Not small enough to steal this book
But you’re cool enough to steal that look
Can’t steal enough to fill the fridge
Are you bad enough to steal this bridge

Steel yourself like a railroad track
Like a tin roof on a shotgun shack
Steel yourself for the long slow ride
And we’ll all get together on the other side

Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself

Steel yourself for the comin’ storm
Steel yourself ‘cause it won’t be long
Steel yourself for the lone dark rider
Armageddon and the great decider

Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
Steel yourself
