Earl Thomas Conley – Fire and Smoke Lyrics

In and out of honkey tonks from one town to the next
But anything worth loving
Lord’s, just too hard to forget
Everyday’s another day of feeling more the same
Looks like I’ll run out of highway before
I out run the rain

But if there’s fire and smoke
Ooh what a rush I got when your love was hot
Oh but I couldn’t see
That when the flame burned out you’d leave
A cold dark cloud a raining down on me

So I’m reaching out to someone wishing, she were you instead
Everything I left behind was waiting up ahead
Pulling on the bottom baby, looking back on you
Anyways the right way babe as long as I pull through

But if there’s fire and smoke
Ooh what a rush I got when your love was hot
Oh but I couldn’t see
That when the flame burned out you’d leave
A cold dark cloud a raining down on me

Yeah, and when the flame burned out you left a cold dark cloud a raining
Down, a raining down on me
