Seven Bridges Road

Lyrics

by

Eagles



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.

I am intrigued as posed a song stemming from AL. but over all the song brings me a knowledge of the seven bridges to Key West, FL. as the man or wo man needed to explore the life unknown of rainbows . As there escaping to the fulfillment of the seven bridges journey. 4 each there own. love the song for its beuti in the art of sound. Amen

The harmonies were not in the Steve Young version but were added by Ian Matthews in an album produced by Mike Nesmith (of the Monkees!). This version came out years before the Eagles used it to warm up on their Hotel California tour. See my blogpost here.

I always wondered who the guy that screams during the pause at the beginning of the song is ?? I wish it was me.

I have always loved the harmonies of this song.They very seldom do it live anymore.That did not look like The Eagles on the YouTube video above,Unless it was very Early in their career.But it most certianly sounde like them.Very well done, who ever it was

I agree with Nady....they all have good ears and near perfect in tone. There have been remakes of the song, but Eagles I think still are the best.
