Seven Bridges Road Lyrics - Eagles

Review The Song (5)

There are stars
In the Southern sky
Southward as you go
There is moonlight
And moss in the trees
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Now I have loved you like a baby
Like some lonesome child
And I have loved you in a tame way
And I have loved you wild

Sometimes there's a part of me
Has to turn from here and go
Running like a child from these warm stars
Down the Seven Bridges Road

There are stars in the Southern sky
And if ever you decide
You should go
There is a taste of time sweetened honey
Down the Seven Bridges Road

Every time I hear "Seven Bridges" begin to play on my car radio, I feel the urge to pull to the side of the road. Sometimes to sing along, sometimes out of reverence. The harmony is awesome. It is without a doubt one of the most remarkable songs I have ever heard. Well done Eagles!

Time Vs. Thyme | Reviewer: Sean Kearns | 7/14/07

I always thought Thyme sweet and honey referred to "Sweet Honey" which is usually due to bees being raised around clover and thyme.

just my 2 pence.

However you spell it though, amazing song

Many Versions by Many Pretenders: But We Only Remember the Best One.. | Reviewer: John R.V. Jones | 7/10/07

The Eagles' cover of Country Rock pioneer Steve Young's "Seven Bridges Road" on their 1980 "Eagles Live" album, sung A Capella in the beginning of the song by all band members, is a clear example of why the Eagles' harmonizing sound has remained on the charts and in popular culture since they formed in the 70's. "Seven Bridges Road" went to #1 on BillBoard's Hot 100 chart.
The "Seven Bridges Road", according to Hank Williams, Jr. in his autobiography, refers to the highway that leads to the Oakwood Annex Cemetery in Montgomery, Alabama,where his father's grave is. To get there, one must cross over 7 bridges.

"Seven Bridges Road" has been covered by many, from Joan Baez, to Dolly Parton, Ricochet and Alan Jackson, on the Jackson/Buffet/Strait "Live at Texas Stadium" album, one of the better versions to be released post-Eagles Live, as it is essentially a cover of a cover. It's also not the first song in which Alan Jackson has either written or covered that had a direct or indirect reference to Hank Williams gravesite. However, despite the many versions out there, it is the "Eagles Live" version that we remember and tend to favor.
Why is that? After thinking about it, I realized that listening to the harmonizing vocals on this particular version of the song literally makes your spirit feel like you're soaring with Eagles (the feathered kind...)and no matter what mood you're in, you'll be feeling better after listening to it. I've never gotten a similar response or feeling from listening to any other version.
The Eagles released "Seven Bridges Road" as a live cut b/w "The Long Run", also live. It was never recorded as a studio track - but then again, why would they ever have wanted to? You don't mess with perfection.

On the Eagles' DVD release of "Hell Freezes Over", there's a great outtake of the band rehearsing "Seven Bridges Road" A Capella. If you've never seen it, do. It's less than a minute, but well worth it.

Harmony 101 | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/14/05

Most popular bands have at most one passable singer, and maybe someone else who can do a little backup; many get by on one lame singer who's willing to be the frontman anyway- attend a live concert and compare to what you hear on a studio album and you'll see what I mean. The live recording of this song (from "Eagles Live" '80 or "Greatest Hits Volume 2" '82) showcases the Eagles' complement of strong vocalists; every member can do well solo, but when they harmonize together, it's truly magical.
