I've seen bare rock standing
Where the trees once stood
Three hundred thousand acres
That ain't no good
Tried to stop that wildfire
When it's burnin' bad
And all that I've given
Is all that I had.

And there's smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun
Wind holds the warning
When the wildfire comes
Ain't nothing left
When the wildfire's done
Smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun.

I've been so tired
I've been steppin' on my feet
Been trapped and surrounded
In the burning heat
I've seen ground fire and crown fire
And dug fire breaks
And all that I've given
Is all that it takes

And there's smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun
Wind holds the warning
When the wildfire comes
Ain't nothing left
When the wildfire's done
Smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun.

When the timber is burning
So it lights up the night
And the pines blow up
Like they were dynamite
And the smoke gets so thick
You can't see daylight
All I'll have given
Is all of my life

And there's smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun
Wind holds the warning
When the wildfire comes
Ain't nothing left
When the wildfire's done
Smoke on the wind
Blackening the sun.
