Blackberry Smoke - Let It Burn Lyrics




Well, if I had a nickel for every line this town put on my face
If I had a dime for every time I said I was fixing to leave this place
It would help me buy the gas I'm about to pour on every thing I've seen
I can't be sentimental when it don't mean nothing to me

Let it burn, burn, just let it burn
I'm sick of hangin' 'round here waiting for the tides to turn
It don't matter if its far or near, just as long as I get out of here
Let it burn, let it burn

I work too damn hard to wind up in this shotgun shack
To get a little behind and have a man come and take it back
They're all breathing down my neck waiting for me to fall
Well if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

Let it burn, burn, momma let it burn
I can't wait to see 'em all when they ain't got nowhere to turn
I watch the flames light up the sky
Blow 'em a kiss as I wave good-bye. Yeah

Let it burn, burn, just let it burn
Well, I'm sick of hangin' 'round here waiting for the tides to turn
Yeah, even if I wanted to stay, they'd probably run me out of here anyway
Let it burn

    Saw these guys on "Later... with Jools Holland." I am quite impressed! I have always liked southern rock. These guys remind me of classic bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, the Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, etc. Blackberry Smoke has a great sound!

    Well, if I had a nickel for every line this town put on my face,
    If I had a dime for every time I said I was fixing to leave this place,
    It would help me buy the gas I'm about to pour on every thing I've seen,
    I can't be sentimental when it don't mean nothing to me.

    Let it burn, burn, just let it burn,
    I'm sick of hangin' 'round here waiting for the tides to turn,
    It don't matter if its far or near, just as long as I get out of here,
    Let it burn, let it burn.

    I work to damn hard to wind up in this shotgun shack,
    To get a little behind and have a man come and take it back,
    They're all breathing down my neck waiting for me to fall,
    Well if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all.

    Let it burn, burn, momma let it burn,
    I can't wait to see 'em all when they ain't got nowhere to turn,

    Blow 'em a kiss as I wave good-bye. Yeah.

    Let it burn, burn, just let it burn,
    Well, I'm sick of hangin' 'round here waiting for the tides to turn,
    Yeah, even if I wanted to stay, they'd probably run the other here anyway.

  44. Eddie McWest

    Charlie, you and the criminals you run with need to visit the Pacific Northwest. I'm just 25 miles north of California, but i would take a taxi to Seattle if you could book a venue there, Portland or Frisco would be better.

    William Hinson

    Lee Angel grow up bro. Get drunk you faggot. It's good for you. What you saving yourself for.

    Christian

    Lyrics... it's all about the lyrics. Some bands spout out shit words to make money, these guys preach the truth.

    William Hinson

    Christian yes it is! But it's also their live performance. Awesome live. Never the same show twice and great lyrics written by BBS or Charlie Starr. Like most singer -songwriters they seem to pull lyrics out of life experiences. Best Southern Rock band since Ronnie van zant. And Duane allman died. J roddy and the business is great too check em out. Alternative southern rock

  58. Karen E.

    Whoo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! These guys are amazing. I love love love love love 'em!
