Burnin Down (Patty Larkin)

Get the baby and the bath water pack it up Get the truck in the backyard and back it up It's burnin' down Tie it off with a little piece of clothes line Pile it up now if something falls we'll never mind It's burnin' down Run along the river, get your brother and your sister Hurry up now and don't stop for nothing, mister Burnin' down Dear mother, it's moving below the ridge Dear father, it's coming across the bridge It's burnin' down Dust to dust and ashes to ashes Hear the road, feel the heat that's what fast is It's burnin' down Tires scream, children quiet and wild eyed Can't get far enough away from the mountain side It's burnin' down Dear mother, it's moving below the ridge Dear father, it's coming across the bridge It's burnin' down, burnin' down
