Seven Bridges Road

Words & Music:

Don Henley


D         C            G

There are stars in the southern sky,

Southward as you go.

There is moonlight and moss in the trees,

Down the Seven Bridges Road.


Now I have loved you like a baby,

Like some lonesome child.

And I have loved you in a tame way,

And I have loved you wild.


    C               D

Sometimes there's a part of me

Has to turn from here and go.

Running like a child from these warm stars,

         D     C       G  D

Down the Seven Bridges Road.


There are stars in the southern sky,

And if ever you decide you should go,

There is a taste of time, sweetened honey,

Down the Seven Bridges Road.
