  • 2nd verse, it's 'brick and rivet and lime,' as in limestone cement. Also rhymes with 'dime.' Came up this morning on my i pod. Played it 4 times straight (Rudy Vallee version with 'mystery verse'). Possibly one of the best poetic descriptions in social history.

  • mermaidliz, I don't think there's much mystery about it, the speaker (actually speaking for the impoverished and unemployed people in the country) 'followed the mob' trying to live out what they had been told was the American way. When the country needed farmers, laborers, any sort of work to be done, and especially when they were called to war, the people saw it as their duty. Now they wonder why they have to stand in line for a handout of bread. The speaker feels betrayed, powerless, and duped by a country that used him, and he can't believe it.
