Ridley Bent – Burnin' Down Barns lyrics

Good evening ladies and gents, I'm Ridley Bent,
And I just had a crazy couple days and this is how they went.
We were puttin' on a barn dance over in Cloverdale,
The band I hired was hotter than a Mexican jail.
We went on at midnight; we cooked the place 'till dawn,
When a guitar lick caught on fire in the middle of our last song.

Burnin' barns down all over town.

Well luckily for us we got the gear into the bus without a scratch.
We're all good people so no doubt a few angels have got our backs.
We're burning barns down all over town, can't help it.
Burnin' barns down all over town.

Yeah a couple days off before we opened up for George Strait,
And one of our very good friends took us out for $50 steaks.
Yeah, he showed us his warehouse full of vintage gear,
He said "What's mine is yours long as they don't go far from here."
We all sat around and played everything he had,
When we broke into "Ring of Fire" lightening struck us dead.

Burnin' barns down all over town.

Luckily for us the law's convinced we didn't break the rules.
And even luckier is the fact that our agent hasn't booked us any schools.
We've been burning down all over town.
It was electrical!

Burnin' barns down all over town.
Yeah we've been burnin' barns down all over town.
