CROSS OVER THE BRIDGE (Bennie Benjamin / George David Weiss) Patti Page - 1954 Also recorded by: Anne Shelton; The Chords; Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith. If you're a guy who's had a gal In each and every port And you've forgot the rules of love That life has always taught And if you broke as many hearts As ripples in a stream Well, brother, here's the only way That you can be redeemed Cross over the bridge Cross over the bridge Change your reckless way of livin' Cross over the bridge Leave your fickle past behind you And true romance will find you Brother, cross over the bridge If you have built a boat To take you to the greener side And if the boat is built Of ev'ry lie you ever lied You'll never reach the Promised Land of love I guarantee 'Cause lies cannot hold water And you'll sink into the sea Cross over the bridge Cross over the bridge Change your reckless way of livin' Cross over the bridge Leave your fickle past behind you And true romance will find you Brother, cross over the bridge I know it isn't easy To resist temptation's call But think of how your broken heart Will hurt you when you fall 'Cause some day you will find That you are hopelessly in love And she'll belong to someone else As sure as stars above Cross over the bridge Cross over the bridge Change your reckless way of livin' Cross over the bridge Leave your fickle past behind you And true romance will find you Brother, cross over the bridge Cross over the bridge
