Setting The Woods on Fire Lyrics

by Hank Williams

Comb your hair, paint and powder
You act proud, and I'll act prouder
You sing loud, and I'll sing louder
Tonight were settin' the woods on fire

You're my gal and I'm your feller
Put on your new dress of yeller
I'll look swell but you'll look sweller
Settin' the woods on fire

We'll take in all the honky-tonks
Tonight we're havin' fun
Show the folks a brand new dance
That never has been done

Well I don't care who thinks we're silly
You be daffy I'll be dilly
Well order up two bowls of chili
Settin' the woods on fire

I'll gas up my hotrod stroker
We'll get hotter than a poker
You'll be broke but I'll be broker
Tonight were settin' the woods on fire

We'll sit close to one another
Up one street and down the other
We'll have us a time, oh brother
Settin' the woods on fire

Put a little time to fix a flat or two
Tires of two are doin' fine
But the air is showing through

You clap hands and I'll start countin'
We'll do all the laws allowin'
Tomorrow I'll be right back plowin'
Settin' the woods on fire
Settin' the woods on fire
