Burnin' The Roadhouse Down

Steve Wariner

 

                   G                                      C                          G

1. Well the crowd is getting restless, smoky, loud, and hot,

2. Yea, it's a mob out on the dance floor, pressure's getting higher,

3. <Instrumental>

                                  Em                  A7                      D

1. The band is heatin' up and givin' everything they got,

2. One spark from that fiddle bow, could set this place on fire,

3. <Instrumental>

              G                                    C                          G

1. Somebody check the exits, in case a fire breaks out,

2. It's so cool to be here at the hottest place in town,

3. They'll be sifting through the ashes when Saturday rolls around,

              G                            Em

1. We're packed in tight, it's Friday night,

2. Feels so right, it's Friday night,

3. But it's alright it's Friday night

                      A7              D                  G

1. And we're burnin' the schoolhouse down

2. We're burnin the schoolhouse down

3. And we're burnin' the schoolhouse down

 

 

<CHORUS>

                            C7                                G

We're burnin' it down, we're burnin' the schoolhouse down

        G                     Em                           A7                        D

The band is in full swing and man there ain't no stopping now,

                    G                                        C                        G

There'll be nothing left but ashes when Saturday rolls around

       G                   Em

But it's alright, it's Friday night

                 A7              D                  G

And we're burnin' the schoolhouse down.
