Story behind 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!"
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
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
