Musical musings for reflection

Seven Bridges Road

on January 28, 2013

When I was a teenager, I always felt better when I belted this song out at the top of my lungs. My mother used to beg me to stop playing this song over and over and over every Saturday morning while I was cleaning the bathrooms.

But then, listening to The Eagles always makes me feel better — even now. It must be their timeless 3-part harmony…

Seven Bridges Road

performed by The Eagles

written by Stephen T. Young

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.

Sometimes there’s a part of me
Has to turn from here and go…
Running like a child from these warm stars
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 sweet and honey
Down the Seven Bridges Road.
