lyrics

ON A BRIDGE BY A BRIDGE (Lamont’s Song) capo 2nd
© Bob Wright
D G D
well he said that he lived on a bridge by a bridge
A D
by and by I would find it was true
G
and the people who passed by that house
D A D
on a bridge by a bridge came to him for his views
A D
so he’d give them a poem that he wrote or he owned
G D
dusted lightly with spice and with wit
D G D
and he lived on a bridge by a bridge all his life
A D
and he never got tired of it

you would think that to live on a bridge by a bridge
would be crowded and noisy for sure
but he felt that to live means to live
on a bridge by a bridge with the world at your door

and he wasn’t afraid to be seen or be heard
on a bridge by a bridge by the bay
and if you listen close when you’re crossing a bridge by a bridge
you can still hear him say

that he’ll give you a poem that he wrote or he owned
dusted lightly with spice and with wit
and he lived on a bridge by a bridge all his life
and he never got tired of it

so if you ever come to a bridge by a bridge
just take what you find there in stride
cause someone who lives on a bridge by a bridge
is someone with nothing to hide

and he’ll give you a poem that he wrote or he owned
dusted lightly with spice and with wit
and he lived all his life on a bridge by a bridge
and he never got tired of it

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
