I fell in love with April
When I was barely seventeen
I thought I'd met the girl of my dreams

Daddy he did warn me
Boy don't get carried away
Better save some fight for another day

Oh but passion Lord how it burned
He knew someday I would learn
When the smoke cleared
I would dry my tears

I got lost in the fire and smoke
I got lost in the fire and smoke
I got lost in the fire and smoke

Daddy carried a pistol
Strapped right by his side
But it was in his hand on the day that he died
An ornery angry stranger
And a heart filled with hate
Turned his venom on my daddy's son that day

Two iron barrels they smoked and burned
I hid my eyes but I'd soon learn
That when the smoke cleared
I would cry my tears

He got lost in the fire and smoke
He got lost in the fire and smoke
He got lost in the fire and smoke

Love and hate stand back-to-back
A peaceful man when cornered he will attack
Trust and fear stand hand-in-hand
We are here now there is no promised land

We got lost in the fire and smoke
We got lost in the fire and smoke
We got lost in the fire and smoke
We got lost in the fire and smoke

Fire and smoke
Fire and smoke
Fire and smoke
Fire and smoke
