lyrics

They used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear, I was always there, right on the job
They used to tell me I was building a dream with peace and glory aheadW
Why should I be standing in line waiting for a piece of bread?

Once I built a railroad, made it run, made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once I built a tower to the sun, brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell
Full of that Yankee Doodle Dee Dum
Half a million boots when slogging through Hell
And I was the kid with the drum

Say, don’t you remember... they called me “Al”, it was “Al” all the time
Say, don’t your remember... I’m your pal
Brother, can you spare a dime

Why don’t your remember? I’m your pal.
Brother, can you spare a dime
