Allman, Gregg - Floating Bridge Lyrics




Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that ol' floatin' bridge
Tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid

When I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Yeah, when I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Now, when I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Lord, please, please take me on dry land

Now, they carried me out the water an' they laid me on the bank
Now, they carried me out the water an' they laid me on the bank
They carried me out the water, they laid me on the bank
About a gallon of muddy water I had drank

Now, they dried me off an' they laid me on the bed
Now, they dried me off an' they laid me on the bed
Now, they dried me off, they laid me on the bed
Don't like muddy water runnin' through my head

Now, my mother often taught me, don't you be no bum
But my mother often taught me, don't you be no bum
But my mother often taught me, son, don't you be no bum
Go somewhere settle down find you someone

Now, the people standin' on the bridge was screamin' an' cryin'
Well, the people on the bridge was screamin' an' cryin'
Now, the people on the bridge was standin' screamin' an' cryin'
Lord, I thought sure that I was dyin'

Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
I never will forget that ol' floatin' bridge
Tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid
Tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid

    I've been a big Allman fan since I was a kid, soul blues rock, he could do it all masterfully.

  11. ann cooley

    This is an album to be proud of. So traditional & modern at the same time. This song, along with two others on Low Country Blues, sound like home-made instruments were used. Gregg went back to his roots.. His voice was ready for this remake. Superb, erotic, raw. Wished you lived another 20 years Gregg. Good luck up there..

  12. Mike Morgan

    True soul performer. Testified for sure. Said some real truth. He kept the faith and made a lot of good music.

  13. Gattis Gattis

  40. Herbie Rolison

    T- Bone Burrnett produced this album with Gregg, as always stellar craftsmanship on both accounts!

  41. Emidio Vaz

    Wait for me!!

  42. m harvey

    Antonio says its okey!

  43. David87124

    I might go down to the crossroads myself, to play guitar like that:)

  44. Russ Brown

    You can hear that "it" that everyone talks about; what an album and digging these songs out from those old recorded blues songs; man that's "it". Some of the best Gregg Allman i have heard.

  45. Steely_Fran

    I always liked his voice especially when I heard the demos for The 31st of February. "God Rest His Soul" has some of my favorite Gregg vocals. The version of "Morning Dew" on there is amazing as well. This album is awesome; Gregg is a legend!

  46. Emidio Vaz

    Greg is certainly back and Wow.
    This is damn good Bluezz.

  47. Terry Gronenthal

    I certainly hope they had a camera crew in the recording studio. I think this would be, could be, a wonderful lesson in the history of the blues.

  48. FDRGREG

    Absolutely Great Album ... it grows on you each play ... I like an album that does that you know ...

  49. stealyourface73
