Burning bridges Garth Brooks
transcribed to chords by Aaron Segal
Intro: C Em Am G / C Em Am G
[Am]Yesterday she tha[G]nked me for [F]oiling the front [C]door
This [Dm]morning when she [C]wakes she won't be [F]thankful anym[G]ore
[Am]She'll never know how [G]much I cared, just [F]that I couldn't [C]stay
And I'll [Dm]never know the [C]reason why I [F]always run a[G]way.
Burning [Am]bridges, [F]one [G]by [C]one.
What I'm [Am]doing can't [F]be [G]un[C]done
And I'm [Am]always hoping [G]someday, I'm gonna [F]stop this running '[C]round
But e[Dm]very time the [G]chance comes [C]up, [Dm]another [G]bridge goes[C] down
[Am]Last night we talked of [G]old times, and f[F]amilies and home[C]towns
She [Dm]wondered if we'd [C]both agree on [F]where we'd settle [G]down
[Am]And I told her that we'd [G]cross that bridge when[F]ever it ar[C]rives
But [Dm]now I see her [C]through the flames standing [F]on the other [G]side
Like [Am]ashes on the water I drift away in sorrow
Knowing [Dm]that the day my lesson's finally [G]learned.
I'll be [Am]standing at a river staring [Am]out across tomorrow
And the [Am]bridge I'll need to get there, will be a [Dm]bridge that I [G]have burned
