The Old Covered Bridge

The Old Covered Bridge

(Billy Hill)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra


There's an old covered bridge
Across the Old Mill stream
Covered with memories for me

It was there in my childhood I used to dream
That my bridge was a ship far at sea
With my sweetheart holding hands
I'd sail to far off lands
But now that sea has gone
No one understands

Just the old covered bridge
Across the Old Mill stream
Covered with memories for me
