Loretta Lynn – I Burnt The Little Roadside Tavern Down lyrics

Oh I burnt the little roadside tavern down the only one for miles and miles around
Now it's pile of ashes on the ground
Yeah I burnt the little roadside tavern down

Oh I warned my man just stay away from that tavern or I'll burn it down someday
I think he thought it was a joke until he smelled the smoke
Then he screaned that woman finally got her way
Oh I burnt the little roadside...
[ steel ]
He acted like a man who'd lost its mind after he bought all those bottles of wine
You should have heard him talk and should as he tried to put it out
Drowin' water on the bucket at a time
Oh I burnt the little roadside...
Yes I burnt the little roadside tavern down
