By the Light of a Burning Bridge  George Strait

CAPO FIRST FRET
Intro: D G A (2x)
[D]Oh, I've been [G]stumblin' [A]through the [D]darkness,[G] [A]
[D]Tryin' to feel the [G]ground be[A]neath my [D]feet.[G] [A]
[D]Afraid of movin' [G]much in [A]any di[D]rection...[G] [A]
[D]Stuck where the [G]past and the [A]future [D]meet.[Bm] [A]
But I [G]fin'lly got my [D]first good look...
[A]A little fire was [D]all it took.
[G]An' as the flames grew [D]brighter,
I saw [A]everything that I'd missed.
[G]Once you get your [D]courage up,
[A]You light a match an' your [Bm]eyes adjust...
[G]It's amazing what a [D]man can see,
By the [Bm]light of a [A]burnin' bridge[D].
[G] [A] [D]  
[D]An' there were things I [G]saw that [A]I'm not [D]proud of.[G] [A]
[D]Things that I'd do [G]diff'rent [A]now from [D]then.[G] [A]
[D]But when I really [G]make mys[A]elf get [D]honest,[G] [A]
[D]It's over and I [G]can't go [A]back a[D]gain.[Bm] [A]
[G]'Cause I fin'lly got my [D]first good look...
[A]A little fire was [D]all it took.
[G]An' as the flames grew [D]brighter,
I saw [A]everything that I'd missed.
[G]Once you get your [D]courage up,
[A]You light a match an' your [Bm]eyes adjust...
[G]It's amazing what a [D]man can see,
By the [Bm]light of a [A]burnin' bridge[D].
[A]It sure is hard to let go and to [G]leave the past [D]behind,
But there [Em]ain't no other [D]way that you can [G]find some peace of [A]mind.
[G]When I fin'lly got my [D]first good look...
[A]A little fire was [D]all it took.
[G]An' as the flames grew [D]brighter,
I saw [A]everything that I'd missed.
[G]Once you get your [D]courage up,
[A]You light a match an' your [Bm]eyes adjust...
[G]It's amazing what a [D]man can see,
By the [Bm]light of a [A]burnin' [D]bridge.
It's [G]amazing what a [D]man can see,
By the [Bm]light of a [A]burnin' [D]bridge.
