About the song
After witnessing a family on Simpson Road in Guthrie Oklahoma standing over what used to be their home
I felt compelled to write this. I wrote the lyrics at 4 A.M. in a sleepy daze after nodding on the couch for 1/2 an hour. The following night we played it at the Woodcrest Fire Department Fundraiser and it rained for the first time in months!!
winner of the Women of mp3 weekly song contest and # 1 on the general blues charts, it remains in the top 40 over a year later. This song was inspired by the devastation of the year 2000 wildfires. SEVEN MILLION ACRES BURNED! Debut recording for Chad Lane, teen blues guitar wizard. He rolled over in bed last night and almost broke a string! A UNIQUE tune in that it is blues with an environmental message. So please remember...KEEP YOUR UGLY BUTT IN THE CAR; USE THE ASHTRAY!! "The devil stands pointing to the room down below. If you like to start fires, he's got a HOT deal for you!"
Lyrics
The day started out like any other day

Sky still blue

And it seemed like it never would rain

Then the sky turned dark

And the water began to fall

Oh how I wish

It had been a raincloud that I saw


Chorus:

But now I ain't got no home

In this world no more

All that I had, Lord it's gone

I ain't got no home in this world no more

Just cuz some fool

Threw his cigarette out on my lawn



Well they've got a place for pyros like you

The fire's already burnin' and all your

friends are there too

The devil stands pointing

to the room down below

If you like to start fires

He's got a hot deal for you
