There's a prairie fire burning in my mind baby tonight
With the coals stoked glowing hot 'til they get bright white
So come on you gotta tag along 'til they set things right
We're gonna march to Montgomery in the pale moonlight

There's a prairie fir burning in my mind baby tonight
With some people down on their backs thinking this ain't right
So we'll see if the dawn can set us a little more on sight
Everybody's riding for free as it's everyone's fight

We're gonna go to the ghetto, hit the bordello
Everybody come outside
We're one big nation, like a UN training station
Everybody's showing their pride

There's a prairie fire burning in my eyes baby tonight
You gotta three minute warning to join or get outta sight
To stand aside is to take their side alright
So c'mon we're gonna take 'em on as they ain't that bright
