House Burning Down Songtext - Jimi Hendrix

House Burning Down - Jimi Hendrix


Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey

Look at the sky turn a hell fire red

Somebody's house is burning down down, down down

Down, down, down

[Verse 1]

Well I asked my friend, "Where is that black smoke coming from?"

He just coughed and changed the subject and said, "Oh, I think it might snow some"

So I left him sipping his tea and I jumped in my chariot

And rode off to see just why and who could it be this time

Sisters and brothers, dads, mothers standing around crying

When I reached the scene the flames were making a ghostly whine

So I stood on my horse's back and I screamed without a crack

I say, "Oh baby why'd you burn your brother's house down?"


[Verse 2]

Well, someone stepped from the crowd, he was nineteen miles high

He shouts retired and disgusted, so we paint red through the sky

I said the truth is straight ahead so don't burn yourself instead

Try to learn instead of burn, hear what I say, yeah, yeah

So I finally rode away but I'll never forget that day

Because when I reached the valley I looked way down cross the way

A giant boat from space landed with eerie grace

And came and taken all the dead away



Ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Oh baby
