"I Burnt The Little Roadside Tavern Down" lyrics

I Burnt The Little Roadside Tavern Down

Oh, I burnt the little roadside tavern down
The only one
For miles and miles around
Now it's just a pile of ashes
On the ground, yes
I burnt the little roadside tavern down

Oh, I warned my man, "Just stay away
From that tavern
Or I'll burn it down someday"
I think he thought it was a joke
Until he smelled the smoke
Then he screamed, "That woman
Finally had her way"

Oh, I burnt the little roadside tavern down
The only one
For miles and miles around
Now it's just a pile of ashes
On the ground, yes
I burnt the little roadside tavern down

He acted like a man who'd lost his mind
After he bought all those bottles of wine
You should have heard him talk and shout
As he tried to put it out
Drowing water on the bucket
At a time

Oh, I burnt the little roadside tavern down
The only one
For miles and miles around
Now it's just a pile of ashes
On the ground, yes
I burnt the little roadside tavern down

Yes
I burnt the little roadside tavern down
