Lyrics

Burn Down the Barn

Written By: Chris Wardwell

The wind has no shadow, but
The heart leaves a trail
And my bitter thoughts wander
Round your letters in the mail
My bare feet now ache
My blistered fingers burn
There’s no road I can travel
For which I have not earned

Burn down the barn, burn down the barn
I don’t mean any harm
Still, burn down the barn

Neath a harvest moon
My plans were hatched
And what plagued my soul
I solved with a match
The neighbors came from miles around
And all they could do was stare
If they say I’m crazy
Well I just don’t care

Burn down the barn, burn down the barn
I don’t mean any harm
Still, burn down the barn

[Bridge]
If they come to get me, it’s all the same
If they lock me up, you I won’t blame
And I don’t regret it, I’d do it again
Everything I did, I did in your name

The last thing I did
Was take the mailbox out
With a Louisville Slugger
And a victory shout
The crowds they all cheered
The day went down in fame
They don’t know why I did it
But they remember my name

Burn down the barn, burn down the barn
I don’t mean any harm
Still, burn down the barn

How It Is

Written By: Chris Wardwell

How It Is

I came to tell you how it is
I came to tell you how it is
I ain't someone that you can dismiss
I came to tell you how it is
Now I got you thinking
Maybe I got it wrong
Baby I came to tell you how it is

You're the only one who's gonna pay
The truth won't ever see the light of day

It won't ever matter what you found
His brother is the sheriff of this town

Call the people from their fields and homes
A single voice will only die alone

I came to tell you how it is
I ain't someone that you can dismiss
