    This has been heavy on my mind lately. Lord, I have burned enough bridges to reach from here to the UK. There is a song called “Burning Bridges”. It was sang by a band called the Mike Curb Congregation. They sang in the 70’s. Once you burn a bridge, it would be easier to walk through the gates to hell than to rebuild that bridge. I regret burning a lot of those bridges. Think about it before you strike that match.
    Friends all tried to warn me
    But I held my head up high
    All the time they warned me
    But I only passed them by
    They all tried to tell me
    But I guess I didn’t care
    I turned my back and
    Left them standing there

    All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
    All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
    Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
    Burning bridges lost forevermore

    Joey tried to help me find a job
    A while ago
    When I finally got it I didn’t want to go
    The party Mary gave for me
    When I just walked away
    Now there’s nothing left for me to say

    All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
    All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
    Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
    Burning bridges lost forevermore

    Years have passed and I keep thinking
    What a fool I’ve been
    I look back into the past and
    Think of way back then
    I know that I lost everything I thought I that could win
    I guess I should have listened to my friends

    All the burning bridges that have fallen after me
    All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
    Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
    Burning bridges lost forevermore

    tig:There is another song that is from the 70’s, ONE TIN SOLDIER / THE ORIGINAL CASTE. A lot of the songs from the 70’s carried a message or warning.

    Listen, children, to a story
    That was written long ago,
    ‘Bout a kingdom on a mountain
    And the valley-folk below.

    On the mountain was a treasure
    Buried deep beneath the stone,
    And the valley-people swore
    They’d have it for their very own.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won’t be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after….
    One tin soldier rides away.

    So the people of the valley
    Sent a message up the hill,
    Asking for the buried treasure,
    Tons of gold for which they’d kill.

    Came an answer from the kingdom,
    “With our brothers we will share
    All the secrets of our mountain,
    All the riches buried there.”

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won’t be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after….
    One tin soldier rides away.

    Now the valley cried with anger,
    “Mount your horses! Draw your sword!”
    And they killed the mountain-people,
    So they won their just reward.

    Now they stood beside the treasure,
    On the mountain, dark and red.
    Turned the stone and looked beneath it…
    “Peace on Earth” was all it said.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won’t be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after….
    One tin soldier rides away.

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat a friend.
    Do it in the name of Heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won’t be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgement day,
    On the bloody morning after….
    One tin soldier rides away.
