LYRICS

Thomas Mercer had a plan
To bring the water together
Lock us up to shingletown, lock your heart to me
Connect the lakes to puget sound
For trade in any weather
&nbs;Lock us up to shingletown, lakes locked arm in arm

An army major ‘rrived on the scene
he knew what had to be done
Lock us up to shingletown, lock your heart to me
Told dreamers and schemers its north we go
and concrete poured by the ton
Lock us up to shingletown, lakes locked arm in arm

Fish and fleets, draw bridges and streets
People come to watch the salmon
Lock us up to shingletown, lock your heart to me
with steady hands on line and tiller
Ships enter a steel canyon
Lock us up to shingletown, lakes locked arm in arm

Now the ship can shed there salt
After days and days at sea
Lock us up to shingletown, lock your heart to me
Then back to work an’ west you go
Green mark to starboard and free
Lock us up to shingletown, lakes locked arm in arm

Those men on ships going out to sea
Off to wild Alaska
Lock us up to shingletown, lock your heart to me
chasing silver fish beneath the waves
Then back home to Seattle
Lock us up to shingletown, lakes locked arm in arm
