ACROSS THE BRIDGE (Walter Scott) Jim Reeves - 1962 I have lived a life of sin in this world I'm living in I have done forbidden things I shouldn't do I asked a beggar along the way if he could tell me where to stay Where I could find real happiness and love that's true Across the bridge there's no more sorrow Across the bridge there's no more pain The sun will shine across the river And you'll never be unhappy again Follow the footsteps of the King till you hear the voices ring They'll be singing out the glory of the land The river Jordan will be near, the sound of trumpets you will hear And you'll behold the most precious place ever known to man Across the bridge there's no more sorrow Across the bridge there's no more pain The sun will shine across the river And you'll never be unhappy again Across the bridge (Across the bridge) There's no more sorrow (There's no more sorrow) Across the bridge (Across The Bridge) There's no more pain (There's no more pain) The sun will shine across the river And you'll never be unhappy again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2010)
