Seven Bridges Road Lyrics

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...

    In Montgomery County off of Barganier Road were 13 Bridges. We were told driving one direction you’d count 13 but when you turned around to drive back you’d only count 12.

    This was not the road referring to 7 Bridges. That’s still on Woodley Road.

    I was told that there's seven bridges on the road that leads to Hank Williams Sr grave. The lyrics about love could allude to the love songs Hank wrote

    In a 1981 interview, Young would say of "Seven Bridges Road": "Consciously when I wrote it, it was just a song about a girl and a road in south Alabama. Now I think there's almost a mystical thing about it."- wikipedia

    Steve Young was inspired to write "Seven Bridges Road" during a sojourn in Montgomery, Alabama, in the early 1960s: according to Young "a group of friends...showed me [a] road [that] led out of town...After you had crossed seven bridges you found yourself out in the country on a dirt road. Spanish moss hung in the trees and there were old farms with old fences and graveyards and churches and streams. A high-bank dirt road with trees. It seemed like a Disney fantasy at times. People went there to park or get stoned or just to get away from it all. I thought my friends had made up the name 'Seven Bridges Road'. I found out later that it had been called by that name for over a hundred years. - wikipedia

    Reference to a road leading out of Montgomery, Alabama. possibly a Lovers lane.
