By the Light of a Burning Bridge  George Strait

Intro: D-Bm-A-D 2x
Verse 1:
[D] Oh, I've been s[Bm]tumblin' t[A]hrough the d[D]arkness,[Bm] [A]
[D] Tryin' to feel the [Bm]ground bene[A]ath my f[D]eet[Bm] [A]
[D] Afraid of movin' much[Bm] in a[A]ny dire[D]ction,[Bm] [A]
[D] Stuck where the [Bm]past and the [A]future meet[D] [Bm]
But I...
Chorus: [G] Finally got my f[D]irst good look,
[A] A little fire is a[D]ll it took
[G] And as the flames grew [D]brighter,
I saw [A]everything that I missed
[G] Once you get your [D]courage up,
[A] You light a match and your [Bm]eyes adjust...
It's a[G]mazing what a [D]man can see
By the l[Bm]ight of a [A]burning bridge[D] [Bm-A-D-Bm-A]
Verse 2: There were things I saw that I'm not proud of
Things that I'd do different now from then
But when I really make myself get honest,

'Cause I...
Repeat Chorus:
Bridge: It s[A]ure is hard to let go, and to[G] leave the past beh[D]ind
But there [Em]ain't no other w[D/F#]ay that you can [G]find some peace of m[A]ind
Well I...
Repeat Chorus:
It's amazing what a man can see by the light of a burning bridge...
