lyrics

6. CROSS THAT BRIDGE | Sallie was a woman with heat in her hands, and big ideas underneath her big hair. She knew how to make a man understand just what it was that might get him there. When she met Donny, everybody warned her if she tried with him – she might end up dead. But she didn’t care if the whole world scorned her. “I’ll have him,” she laughed. Then she said... | “There’s things that you do – have to be undone. A lesson that you learn. Then you have to unlearn it. I’ll cross that bridge after I burn it.” | Donnie was a redneck guitar artist in a chicken wire bar on the wrong side of town. He knew how to make a girl try her hardest. Then he’d ease on by. And then he’d lay her down. When he saw Sallie one Saturday night, the boys in the band – they all heaved a big sigh. But he didn’t care if it didn’t go right. He said, “That’s one angel I’m gonna teach to fly.” | “There’s things that you do – have to be undone. A lesson that you learn. Then you have to unlearn it. I’ll cross that bridge after I burn it.” | Sallie and Donnie came together like this – collided on the dance floor, and into a kiss. Blew away in the dust of Donnie’s half-ton truck. Neither he nor she could believe their luck. Some such loves come up a happy ender. With kids and a pool. And a trendy dog. Others end up in a burnt out cinder. Caught in the bark of a hollow log. | CHORUS | W&M LINDY HEARNE & HAL GREENWOOD © EARTHEN VESSEL MUSIC (ASCAP)
