lyrics

It's a crude hard life
For the crew in the quarry
Muscles and brawn
Squander wages on whiskey

The men are piling rock
Relying only on brute force
To fill a heavy cart
Pulled by Old Nell the horse

It's another long day
With the sledge and the crowbar
But out on the point
There's a man in the water

On the opposite side you will find what you need
Return to the shore if you find you can't breathe

Out on Fish Head Point
Someone spied a stranger
Trying to cross the bay
He says he wants to go to Pittsburgh

On the opposite side . . .

Take him to the bridge
By the entrance to our road
Show him Baileys Harbor
Tell him that's where he should go

On the opposite side . . .

The next day on the bridge
Still a curious sight
Playing with his vest
He evidently stayed all night

If you get up close
And if he lets you near
Concentrate real hard
You might even hear . . .

On the opposite side . . .
