The Lyrics

150 Years Ago, a special spike was driven to unite the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads to bring America together.
(A big triumph, a big triumph)
(Two rail lines, two rail lines)
(Unite as a whole)
(A big triumph)
(Worth uniting)
(Two rail lines, worth uniting)
(Never gave up, a big ol' triumph)
(Two rail lines, never gave up)
(Never gave up, never gave up)
(Civil Wars, hundred-fifty years)
(The Golden Spike)

[[1st Verse:]]
After Lincoln died for good
Union Pacific came into life
Uniting became real to us
(Ohhhhhhhhhhh)
(The Golden Spike)
No more dividing the house
Togetherness is purely a must
Lincoln made this a big reality
Yes, this was his big dream, yeah

[[Pre-Chorus:]]
Lots of time and elbow grease
To unify this whole country
But without these great railroads

[[Chorus:]]
There would be no United States
At all
Without them
There would be no United States
At all
Without them
There would be no United States
At all
(Reach out to the sky)
The great Golden Spike

[[2nd Verse:]]
In the late eighteen-sixties
Two rail lines were joined from back-to-back
In Promontory Summit, Utah, ohhhhhhhhh
(One-Five-Zero)
It took years and some strife
Chinese folks lost many lives
That didn't stop Abe Lincoln and his
big ol' burgeoning legacy, no!

[[New Pre-chorus:]]
Four years after Lincoln died
The Central P and Great Uncle Pete
From Omaha to San Fran Bay
(Through the rocky hills and snowy terrain)
It took a lot of elbow grease
To unify this whole country
But without these great railroads

[[Chorus:]]
There would be no United States
At all
Without them
There would be no United States
At all
Without them
There would be no United States
At all
(The Great Golden Spike) Without them
There would be no United States
At all
(The Great Golden Spike) Without them
There would be no United States
At all
(The Great Golden Spike) Without them
There would be no United States
At all
(The Great Golden Spike) Without them
There would be no United States
At all
The great Golden Spike

(Unifying)

(Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

(Two great railroads)

(Without them)

(Whoahhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

[[Chorus; Til End:]]
(The Great Golden Spike)
Without them (without them)
There would be no United States at all
(The Great Golden Spike)

Hooooooooooorah, yeah
