This is a photo of an old Iron Bridge, standing beside a brand new concrete four lane bridge.  The Iron Bridge is gone now. What a shame.

 

This wall divides us, we’re on two different sides
But this wall is not real; how can it be real?
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire
Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Back in Algiers, my darling broke my heart
But he can’t seem to break down this wall
With two strong hands he couldn’t move it at all
And it’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Down in Opelousas, dogs are at the gate,
And they’re mean, lord, they’re mean
There’s a wall between us, but it’s not what it seems
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Somewhere in Louisiana my sugar’s doing time
But he can’t spend time with me
If he could get over this wall he’d see
That it’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It’s only made of concrete and barbed wire

  1. The past gives way for the present, always a shame, and we wonder what will be next.. as there’s a beauty to be seen in most things. x

  2. So curious– when did you take this, when did the Iron Bridge come down?

  3. Love the things you write with your amazing shots !! 🙂
