Youth never leaves the mind...

lyrics

“THEM FIRES”
BY JACKSON SLADE
ã 01/ 21/03


WELL I WISH THAT I’D BEEN RAISED UP ON SOME RIVER
BUT ALL I HAD WAS A CORNER OF SOME TRACK
EVERY SINCE I WAS OLD ENOUGH TO WANDER
I HARDLY EVER LOOK BACK

BUT ONE DAY IN THE MAIL I FOUND A LETTER
WITH A NAME I KNEW I’D SEEN BEFORE
IT TOOK ME TO A TIME WHERE I NEARLY
LOST MY MIND……TIL’ I GREW SOME NERVE
‘N’ HEADED OUT THE DOOR

CHORUS: CAUSE THEM FIRES, THEY START BURNIN’
THEY’L TAKE YOU ‘N’ LEAD YOU TO ROAM
THEM FIRES, THEY KEEP BURNIN’
THEY NEVER SEEM TO LEAVE YOU ALONE

I REMEMBER WE WERE HEADIN’
DOWN THE HYWAY…. IT WAS HOT ENOUGH
TO STICK YOU TO A TREE
THE DUST WAS FLYIN’ LOW WE HAD NO DAMN
PLACE TO GO….BUT THAT WAS ALRIGHT BY ME
THERE WERE PLENTY OF CLOUDS IN THE DISTANCE
WE WERE LAUGHIN’ AT EVERY THING WE KNEW
HOPIN’ FOR SOME RAIN TO COOL THIS SUMMER PAIN
BUT DRIVIN FAST WAS ALL THAT WE COULD D

CHORUS: THEM FIRES, THEY START BURNIN’
THEY’L TAKE YOU ‘N’ LEAD YOU TO ROAM
THEM FIRES, THEY KEEP BURNIN’
THEY NEVER SEEM TO LEAVE YOU ALONE

INSTRU:

WELL THEY TOLD ME IN THE LETTER
HOW HE MISSED ME
‘N’ EVERYTHING TIL’ NOW HAD BEEN ALRIGHT
HE JUST SPENT TOO MUCH TIME IN THE BACKYARD
THAT’S WHEN HE SLIPPED OUT OF SITE..
BRIDGE:
‘N’ I SAID…..THAT SEEMS TO ME LIKE THE
RIGHT THING TO DO
HE HAD THE NERVE TO CHANGE HIS DAY
CAUSE ALL HE EVER REALLY WANTED TO..
WAS TO FIND HIM SOME SHIP ‘N’ SAIL AWAY

CHORUS: CAUSE, THEM FIRES THEY KEEP BURNIN’
THEY’L TAKE YOU ‘N’ LEAD YOU TO ROAM
THEM FIRES, WHEN THEY STAR BURNIN’
THEY NEVER REALLY LEAVE YOU ALONE

about

Jackson Slade Lewisburg, Tennessee

"Style of music is hard to give a
specific Genre to.. My Spanish roots
come to the surface in my rhythms, and
melodies to some extent. I've always
loved all styles of music, and I guess
my motivation comes from loving how,
through music, we make the world
warmer and smaller, not so vast.
I guess you could say I'm
Rock/Country/Jazz/Pop/Blues/Latin Blues and a few more things too ugly to mention"
