Lyrics

Well I woke up with the sun
I pulled my jacket over my shoulder.
And I kissed her cheek goodbye
I told her I’d be home for supper.

Long days, hold my head up high
Someday you’ll see why I risked my life.

If I could leave a part of me
To show what this town was meant to be
In 1400 feet of steel,
My memory will lie.
This is what I leave behind
In 1929.

Well I fought in the war
To keep my family safe from the enemy
And these rivets keep me stable
And this steel provides bread for my family

All my life I knew
That I had a larger purpose
Now I see that it’s right here in front of me

If I could leave a part of me
To show what this town was meant to be
In 1400 feet of steel,
My memory will lie.
This is what I leave behind
In 1929.

Years from now when I am gone
This light will be left on.

If I could leave a part of me
To show what this town was meant to be
In 1400 feet of steel,
My memory will lie.
This is what I leave behind
In 1929.

If I could leave a part of me
To show what this town was meant to be
In 1400 feet of steel,
My memory will lie.
This is what I leave behind
In 1929.
