  • The bridge, so high
    The bridge, so tall
    Here is where it started
    On the bridge
    The moon is big and yellow
    And the stars are all a' glow
    From the bridge, I see reflections
    In the waters far below

    You kissed me for the first time here
    An' held me awfully tight
    And the bridge became our favorite place
    We came here often in the night

    And one night while standing on the bridge
    Desire swept through us both
    Passion took us by the hand
    And showed us where to go

    From the bridge we saw a meadow
    So we ran together there
    Where we found love together
    Our emotions filled the air

    The bridge, so wide
    The bridge, so long
    Where once we stood together
    Tonight I stand alone

    Tonight, while standing on the bridge
    My heart is beating wild
    To think that you could leave me here
    With our unborn child

    My feet are moving slowly
    Closer to the edge
    Here is where it started
    And here is where I'll end it... Writer/s: DOLLY PARTON
