We'Ve Got A Bridge At Echols Street - Poem by Frank V. Gardner

-->

(Tune: 'Hi Lee, Hi Lo, Hi Lup up up')

We've got a bridge at Echols Street
And it is built to stay.
We're thanking all the townspeople
By marching here today.

Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.

A bridge is what we've waited for
For oh so many years.
And now our eyes are smiling
Instead of crying tears.

Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.

For shopping and the library
We now don't go around
Because the bridge at Echols Street
Has let us join the town.

Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup up up;
Hi lee, hi lo, hi lup.


Children's march to Echols Street Bridge,
Vienna, Virginia, May 30,1964
