lyrics

FIRE ON THE WIRE

Can't find a drink of water, standing in the pouring rain
Fever in the wheelhouse, lost in the sugar cane
It's a full moon for the harvest, money is in the bag
I fell for the fools' fandango, and the chew tobacco rag

Jeremiah there's a fire on the wire
and they're turnin' up the heat
So dance like an angel
while the flames of the devil lick your feet

Saw it in a vision, written on a wall
Another true religion, made no sense at all
Lucy was a handful, she laid down with the law
She sold us down the river, in sunny Arkansas

Jeremiah there's a fire on the wire
and they're turnin' up the heat
So dance like an angel
while the flames of the devil lick your feet

Shake your blue maracas
Bang your silver drum
The beat goes on forever
From here till kingdom come

Jeremiah there's a fire on the wire
and they're turnin' up the heat
So dance like an angel
while the flames of the devil lick
your feet
