2nd verse: yours, pretty much.

3rd Along about the eighteenth day of June in nineteen fifty plus eight,
People were fishin' from the shore and the day was gettin' late.
The wind was tuggin' at the ? trees, but a steel man knows no fear.
If someone wanted to bridge the Pacific, well, a steel man would be there.

4th. All of a sudden the wind kicked up and blew as hard as it could.
That steel bridge shook like a leaf in the breeze and it snapped like a stick of wood.
The girders buckled and the rivets popped and the water heard the cries.
As that steel bridge shook off workin' men like a hound dog shakes off flies.

Refrain between every two:
Steel men, workin' on a bridge to cross that water,
Steel men, workin' on a bridge of steel...

Like I said, I got most, but I think there was a last couplet. Mike
