    There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
    Where the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
    Long before the white man and long before the wheel
    When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
    But time has no beginnings and history has no bounds
    As to this verdant country they came from all around
    They sailed upon her waterways and they walked the forests tall
    And they built the mines the mills and the factories for the good of us all

    For they looked in the future and what did they see
    They saw an iron road runnin' from sea to the sea
    Bringin' the goods to a young growin' land
    All up through the seaports and into their hands

    Look away said they across this mighty land
    From the eastern shore to the western strand
    Bring in the workers and bring up the rails
    We gotta lay down the tracks and tear up the trails
    Open 'er heart let the life blood flow
    Gotta get on our way 'cause we're movin' too slow

    Behind the blue rockies the sun is declinin'
    The stars, they come stealin' at the close of the day
    Across the wide prairies our loved ones lie sleeping
    Beyond the dark oceans in a land far away

    We are the navvies who work upon the railway
    Swingin' our hammers in the bright blazin' sun
    Livin' on stew and drinkin' bad whiskey
    Bendin' our backs 'til the railroad is done

    So over the mountains and over the plains
    Into the muskeg and into the rain
    A dollar a day and a place for my head
    A drink to the livin' and a toast to the dead

    Oh the song of the future has been sung
    All the battles have been won
    On the mountain tops we stand
    All the world at our command
    We have opened up the soil
    With our teardrops and our toil

    There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
    When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
    Long before the white man and long before the wheel
    When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
    When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
    And many are the dead men too silent to be real
