Lyrics

Burnin’
© 2010 Nelson Wright

I tried in vain to take what’s left and pawn it,
Buy a ticket out, stop thinking we’re not through.
But that midnight train is gone and I ain’t on it,
There’s no destination where I won’t be wanting you.

I’m burnin', I’m burnin',
I’m burnin' over you.

It’s a long road from St. Louis to Baton Rouge,
By the end of the line my love was outrun.
Did you want to be loved, or did you want to be used,
Or did you just want a ride down Highway 61?

I’m burnin', I’m burnin',
I’m burnin' over you.

I had a dream you were made for my downfall,
And I thought it might be true.
In the heat of the night it didn’t matter at all,
‘Cause I’d deal with the devil baby just to be with you.

I’m burnin', I’m burnin',
I’m burnin' over you.

I’m going down to the river when the morning breeze starts blowing,
I gotta get you off my mind.
I’m going to sit and watch that cool water flowing,
Watch it leave this old town behind.

I’m burnin', I’m burnin',
I’m burnin' over you.
