Oh she burnt the little roadside tavern down (oh yeah)
The only one for miles and miles around
I saw many hours of pleasure tumble down
When she burnt the little roadside tavern down
It was my home away from home those many nights of gettin' stoned're gone
This is what she had to say man you'd better stay away
Or I'll burn that little tavern down someday
Oh she burnt the little roadside tavern...
It was there I had my freedom all night long
But she'd fuss and say I had done her wrong
She said man you'll never learn just step back and watch it burn
And now that little roadside tavern's gone
So she burnt the little roadside tavern...
