Lyrics
KISSING BRIDGES

I love the covered bridges
Here in Lancaster County
And the thumping sound the wood makes
From the cars and time’s bounty

Most of them are painted red
But a few are white-stained too
And folks say it's good luck
To honk as you drive-thru

Chorus:
Momma called them “Kissing Bridges”
Back when I was young
For many couples strolled across them
And would try to sneak in one
No matter if it’s raining
Or the day is blessed with sun
Kissing bridges in Pennsylvania
I’m sure you’ll find one

Some of the covered bridges
Span over a quiet creek
And some the Conestoga
Yet they all are so unique

Long ago there were near a thousand
Built and used in this state
But time has not been very kind
And I worry about their fate
