Review:

Here’s a simple, light-hearted but ultimately optimistic Texan style Blues Rock track about an old biker dreaming about losing out in love but moving on to a new adventure. Stylistic influences are ZZTop - LaGrange and that classic film Easy Rider.

Lyrics:

She Burned Me Down

 

I had a dream, it made me think twice,

About a girl who wasn't very nice 

She stole my keys and my wallet

And then the house and everything in it

She burned me down.

 

The day came, I didn't plan it

I just thought that enough was enough

And left the girl that wasn't very nice to me. 

 

She burned me down

A broken dream

We couldn't go on       

It wasn't meant to be

 

So, in my dream we started so right

We got so drunk that very night

Oh how we laughed and how we partied

The best of times, I'm broken hearted

She burned me down.

 

The day came, I didn't plan it

I just thought that enough was enough

And left the girl that wasn't very nice to me. 

 

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

 

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down 

She really burned me down.

 

The day came, I didn't plan it

I grabbed the hog and I rode out of town 

No looking back, no regrets, it's time to be free. 

 

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

{She really burned me down.}

 

[Lead break].

To freedom!

 

[Wakes up ...] 

What a dream!

 

Was it a dream?
