lyrics

dad's got work in bridgeport today
took a train and two buses but he found the way
there's a long gone woman who is asking for change
yeah, dad's got work in bridgeport today.

plainspoken pastor's got tears in his eyes
says he'll figure it out, he just needs some time
he wanted it all, he got it so soon
the calls of the choir just fill the room

dad's got work in bridgeport today
the damp dark forest gettin' further away
the lake and the hills are just bills to pay
yeah, dad's got work in bridgeport today.

i saw a tornado twist a town on its back
saw a city of diamonds, but no one kept track
saw the moon getting heavy in a silver a sky
and i woke up that morning, started asking why
i was 12 years old, put my hands on the wheel
i had figured it out, i knew what was real
i am no one now, but i'm from somewhere
and the moon's getting heavy and it's dark out there.

dad's got work in bridgeport today
the house in the valley will have to wait
we're biding our time and tempting our fate
yeah, dad's got work in bridgeport today.
