Belt Line Girl

I stood on the station platform
And looked at the lonesome track
The train had gone around the curve
The train that might never come back
For it carried my soldier sweetheart away
The one I loved so true
My heart was sad, but I did not weep
I thought of the work to do
Joe had gone to the fighting front
And he left his job behind
Now I must step into his place
On the long assembly line
I said I'll learn to build a ship
I'll learn to build a plane
For the faster we speed this belt line, girls
The quicker our boys return

If you think that danger is far away
And cannot reach our shore
Go ask the wives of MacArthur's men
They'll tell you about this war
Go ask the widows of the Pearl Harbor boys
Our heroines brave and fine
You'll find them at work in the training schools
And on the assembly line

If a thousand men leave a thousand jobs
To go and fight the foe
Our factory wheels would slacken their speed
And the belts would move too slow
But when a thousand hard working girls
Step in and take a hand
Out roll the tanks and the planes and guns
And there's freedom in the land
