Lyrics

Don't you ever tear down the Big Eddy bridge, cause right underneath it is where Big Eddy lives. He's the man who controls all the snow. Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?

His mother was a wino that had fallen off the wagon, his father was a rhino that had met his mother dancing. The band played long and the couple started twirling and on the banks of the Columbia, the water started swirling.

Don't you ever tear down the Big Eddy bridge, cause right underneath it is where Big Eddy lives. He's the man who controls all the snow. Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?

By the 18th of June, back in 1924, the labour of the crews had built that bridge from shore to shore. The whole town came to party and the children came to watch. People bought their tickets just to be first to cross.

Don't you ever tear down the Big Eddy bridge, cause right underneath it is where Big Eddy lives. He's the man who controls all the snow. Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?

I was out of town when the deal went down- the echo of a mothers tears goodbye. Some might say how tragic, some might say how say how sad, but I guarantee his last was year was the best he'd ever had.

Don't you ever tear down the Big Eddy bridge, cause right underneath it is where Big Eddy lives. He's the man who controls all the snow. Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?

Big Eddy!
