Too Many Bridges To Cross Over
Merle Haggard

Too Many Bridges To Cross Over

Be close to me but please don't ever love me
Don't let your feelings carry you that far
I'll hold you in my arms buy you clothes and pretty charms
And I'll give you everything except my love

Because there's too many bridges to cross over
Too many places I ain't been
Yeah there's too many fields of temptin' clover
Like an eagle I'm a prisoner of the wind

Well travelin' was the nickname of my papa
And momma said he died 'cause he slowed down
Keep in mind these things I'm sayin'
Cause I ain't got the time for stayin'
Won't be long until my shoes touch distant ground
