Subject: Swinging On The Old Swinging Bridge
From: Bluegrass Girl
Date: 05 Jul 01 - 10:50 AM

I must harmonize (this Saturday night) on the chorus to an old song -- not sure whether it's called "The Old Swinging Bridge" or "Swinging On The Old Swinging Bridge" -- I've searched several sites, including this one, and can't find the words.

Can any of you help?

Thanks --

Cheers!

This is probably no help, but it's on Ted Lundy's first album on the Rounder label. Unfortunately, I moved recently and my record collection is no longer alphabetized. If I can find it, I'll try and get the words.

If somebody could post the lyrics or point us to them, that would be good, too.
Thanks.

Thanks to all -- also found the lyrics on James King's "These Old Pictures" CD - a very nice rendition.

I'd post the entire song here if I knew how -- maybe I need to revisit FAQ.

My old scrapbook is hidden away.
I keep it in memory of you.
That old scrapbook is just a bouquet
Of things that we used to do.

Memories haunt me each night in my dreams.
I dream I can still see you there,
Your loving arms held out to me,
And smiling so sweet and so fair.

Don't you remember the happy hours we spent
Swinging on the old swinging bridge?
From June to December together we went,
Swinging on the old swinging bridge.

Memories etc.

We built a dream across the old millstream,
And as the years go on by,
I still keep the memory right here in my heart
And I wonder if you wonder why.

Memories etc.
