Are the same songs from the Old Depression:
Circa 1931: Crooner: Bing Crosby, Lyrics: EY "Yip" Harbug, Music: Jay Gorney, Photo's: Dorthea Lange:
Once I built a railroad, I made it run, made it race against time.
Once I built a railroad; now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a tower, up to the sun, brick, and rivet, and lime;
Once I built a tower, now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?
Thanks to Bing, Yip, Dorthea, and Republicans Everywhere
