Sawyer Brown – Burning Bridges (On A Rocky Road) lyrics

I talked to an old man, he had a bible in a sack
He looked like mother nature had a heart attack
He said I used to have money and visions too
But love and life has changed my points of view

He said things have changed for the better
Things have changed in the weather
Well you got to go down easy when you go
So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road

Now johnny left sally, but she didn't cry
She said johnny taught the devil to lie
Now she stands alone and does her own thing
She don't miss him and she sure don't miss the pain


Don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road
It seems it all hinges on how we carry your load

Now bonnie she played in a rock-n-roll band
But her hour glass was out of sand
She sang one last song, yeah and this one took
Now we all stand in line and we pay to take a look


So don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road
You just don't go burnin' bridges on a rocky road
