for Country Music Lovers contest - September 2012
My Mama said not to marry you
My big brother wanted to punch you
They all heard stories they won't tell
They all said living with you would be Hell

But I went ahead and ran off with you instead
I believed every cotton-picking thing you said
So I burned that bridge

Who knew after ten years it would all go wrong
My family tried to warn me all along
That you are a no good cheap little cheat
You rather run around than stay home to eat

But I went ahead and ran off with you instead
While you convinced me we won't be in the red
So I burned that bridge

Now your kids have grown up these last ten years
When you left they cried bitter tears
They won't talk to you and you wonder why
We've grown strong, we learned to fly

You went ahead and left us instead
Of taking care of your family bread
You burned that bridge

Well, now it's been twenty years since you've gone
You show up saying it was me for you all along
(SPOKEN) Sorry
You burned that bridge
Not me this time
You
You're the one who burned that bridge

(SPOKEN) Somebody call the Fire Department
We got a big bridge on fire over here
