Albert King – Don’t Burn Down The Bridge lyrics

Your mind’s set on leavin’

To a house down a one way street

Say you’re gonna lock up all the doors

And throw away the key

Oh, but don’t burn down the bridge, darlin’

You just might wanna come back

‘Cause the grass ain’t no greener

On the other side of the track

Oh, you counted me out, before I could get to bat

All the things are out-ta the Chevrolet

Tomorrow night be drivin’ a Cadillac

But don’t burn down the bridge, darlin’

You just might wanna come back

‘Cause the grass ain’t no greener

On the other side of the track

Hey!

All your so called friends

Taught you how to cheat an’ lie

Now it seem like you gonna jump

From the fryin’ pan to the fire

Oh, but don’t burn down your bridge, darlin’

You just might wanna come back

‘Cause the grass ain’t no greener

On the other side of the track
