Billy is a shade tree mechanic
He'd never think to charge his friends
What he don't know about a car or a truck
He could put on the head of a pin
Ruby is his one and only
They've been married since she turned eighteen
Being Billy's wife and the mother of his kids
Is all she ever wanted to be
And they don't need a whole lot of money
They get by on what Billy earns
They just need to spend a whole lot of time together
They've got love to burn

Love to burn
More than enough to set the world on fire
And make it turn
No matter how they try
They'll never use it up
They got love to burn

Billy bought an old airstreamed trailer
Hitched it to their pick-up truck
Said come on Ruby, let's go somewhere
Now that the kids are grown up
Ruby said with a smile let's get rolling
'Cause if there's one thing we've learned
Gonna take all the time we've got left together
We've got love to burn

Love to burn
More than enough to set the world on fire
And make it turn
No matter how they try
They'll never use it up
They got love to burn

The winds of time can't put out the flame
It still burns in their hearts
Like it has from the start

Love to burn
More than enough to set the world on fire
And make it turn
No matter how they try
They'll never use it up
They got love to burn
Love to burn
