about

Long ago, in days of old, our terrestrial forefathers constructed a grand and magnificent railroad bridge across the Kinzua Viaduct in the dangerous Wilds of Pennsylvania. This Eighth Wonder of Earth was the tallest railroad bridge yet constructed. It stood formidable, carving a path through the ancient hills. But, as is the case with everything human, the powers of nature would soon have their way....

lyrics

Twenty miles – Here we go!
We are on the open road
We are going, we are going, to Kinzua

Where the great bridge once had stood
Now a pile of iron and wood
We are going, we are going, to Kinzua

Fallen trees cover the ground
A tornado knocked them down
In the valley, in the valley of Kinzua

The eighth wonder of the world
Tumbled in a windy whirl
In the valley, in the valley of Kinzua

Here we go! Here we go! Here we go, go, go!
Through endless mountains we wander
Such sights we will behold

On the road! On the road! On the open road!
Beware the Nittany Lions
Black bears, bobcats, and toads

In just ninety-four work days
Forty men the bridge did raise
In the valley, in the valley of Kinzua

They built Tracks Across the Sky
Three hundred and one feet high
In the valley, in the valley, of Kinzua

Through the Pennsylvania Wilds
This great track had run for miles
‘Cross the valley, ‘cross the valley of Kinzua

‘Neath the arches, I was told
A bank robber hid his gold
In the valley, in the valley of Kinzua

Here we go! Here we go! Here we go, go, go!
Through endless mountains we wander
Such sights we will behold

On the road! On the road! On the open road!
Beware the Nittany Lions
Black bears, bobcats, and toads

Here we go! Here we go! Here we go, go, go!
Through endless mountains we wander
Such sights we will behold

On the road! On the road! On the open road!
We'll search for buried treasure
We'll find our weight in gold
