Note:  You can capo the 1st fret and play these chords ignoring the sharp
symbols but the F chord becomes an E. Cm becomes a Bm and Dm becomes a C#m.
Just so you know; A# is the same as Bb.  D# is Eb.   All sharps are also flats.
A bit of music theory there for you. :-} 

   OLD BRIDGES BURN SLOW   Billy Joe Royal

A#
Here we go round again Masqueradin' as long lost friends
A#                                                                    D#
Cause a memory never dies, it kinda fades into a lie And, what da ya know 
                  F                     A#
Still waters run deep Old bridges burn slow
                   F                              A#
Still waters run deep, now baby Old bridges burn slow

A#
Let's chalk it all up to our youth That's one way to hide from the truth
A#                                                                D#
I never asked you for a thing and if I had You would have told me no
                  F                     A#
Still waters run deep Old bridges burn slow
                   F                              A#
Still waters run deep, now baby Old bridges burn slow


         D#                                      Dm        Cm
But how many years did I chase after you All my mind would allow
     C                                                    
And now I can't break off the past and even if I knew

Lead  A# D# F A#

A#

'Cause a dream we both dream't was 
                                        D#
Just a last ditch attempt to stop the flow
                  F                     A#
Still waters run deep Old bridges burn slow
                   F                              A#
Still waters run deep, now baby Old bridges burn slow

mmmmmmmmm-mm
F                        A#                          F
Don't ya know they burn slow In a way I know and I know
                         A#                     F
Don't ya know they burn slow Still waters run deep
                  A#           F
Old bridges burn slow  Ahhhhh-hh, how they burn (start to fade)
                          A#                     F
Don't you know they burn slow still waters run deep (faded)
