FIGURE (4 times through)   

1 & 3 you promenade, go all the way, the 2 side ladies chain
And when you're home, the head 2 ladies to the right you chain
You turn 'em and the same 4, circle once like that
Go once exactly, heads arch up to dip and dive the track
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
, now circle up 4
Once around and keep in time, head men break to make a line
Forward and back now, 2 ladies chain
The whirlaway and circle left and don'tcha be afraid
To allemande the corner, come on back and promenade
A long walk, go all the way, around that big ol' track
And when you're home, 4 ladies chain across the ring and back
Cross over the bridge, cross over the bridge
Put your fickle past behind you
, and partners whirlaway
Dosado the right hand Sue, come back home and left star thru
And swing her, cross over the bridge

Cross Over The Bridge
 
 

If you're a guy who's had a gal
In each and every port
And you've forgot the rules of love
That life has always taught
And if you broke as many hearts
As ripples in a stream
Well, brother, here's the only way
That you can be redeemed

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

If you have built a boat
To take you to the greener side
And if the boat is built
Of ev'ry lie you ever lied
You'll never reach the Promised Land of love
I guarantee
'Cause lies cannot hold water
And you'll sink into the sea

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

I know it isn't easy
To resist temptation's call
But think of how your broken heart
Will hurt you when you fall
'Cause some day you will find
That you are hopelessly in love
And she'll belong to someone else
As sure as stars above

Cross over the bridge
Cross over the bridge
Change your reckless way of livin'
Cross over the bridge
Leave your fickle past behind you
And true romance will find you
Brother, cross over the bridge

Cross over the bridge

Lyrics by Bennie Benjamin and George Weiss.
Recorded by Patti Page.
