DAVE ALVIN lyrics - Barn Burning

DAVE ALVIN
"Barn Burning"

There's a barn burning, baby
There's a barn burning, baby
No, I can't say who's to blame
There's a barn burning, baby
There's a barn burning, baby
No, I can't say who's to blame
No one knows who did it, baby
And you'd best not ask my name

Better close your windows
Better close your windows
Better stay right in your bed
Better close your windows
Better close your windows
Lock your doors, and stay in bed
'Cause there's a barn burning, baby
And they say somebody's dead

There's an evil in this land

Good man's in prison
Good man's in prison
And a bad man runs free
Good man's in prison
Good man's in prison
And a bad man runs free
There's a barn burning, baby
Best not say you spoke to me

'Cause there's an evil in this land

The rich get richer
The rich get richer
And the poor, they just stay poor
The rich get richer
The rich get richer
And the poor, they just stay poor
Oh, there's a barn burning, baby
Guess you won't see me no more

Oh, there's an evil in this land
Yes, there's an evil in this land

There's a barn burning, baby
There's a barn burning, baby
No, I can't say who's to blame
