Dickson County Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I live by the river on the wrong side of town
Nothing much to do here, but listen to the sound
Of the train I'll never catch passing me by
Of the muddy water drinking the tears that I cry

So I heard you're coming back with somebody else
Well if I had the time, if I had a little help

Every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight
Every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight

I have to think of something, I just have to find a way
Before you cross that river, before I see your face
'Cause I can see your headlights and I can feel the pain
And nothing's gonna save me if I see you again

But if I could use this torch I carry to put it all to right
I'd be baptized in the ashes, come the morning light

And every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight
And every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight

I'd pay the price, I'd take the blame, if I could see it go up in flames
And if I could use this torch I carry to put it all to right

Every bridge in Dickson County would be burning down tonight
Dickson County
