"Bonfire" as written by and Craig Morgan Greer Michael Lynn Rogers....
You can see it from the river
To the top of white pine ridge
Burning like a summer sun
A bunch of rednecks getting half lit
There's mud-covered trucks and S-U-V's
Cranking up hank and A-C/D-C

At the bonfire, out in the sticks
Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
Bonfire, dance a little jig,
Hold up your cup and take another swig
Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
At the bonfire

Everybody sees the headlights
When old Sheriff John pulled up
We all got a little nervous
It's too late to hide our cups
He popped a top and holled real loud
Don't worry y'all I came to hang out

At the bonfire, out in the sticks
Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
Bonfire, dance a little jig,
Hold up your cup and take another swig
Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
At the bonfire

You don't have to be from around here
To know right where to go
All you gotta do is load up
And head towards glow

At the bonfire, out in the sticks
Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
Bonfire, dance a little jig,
Hold up your cup and take another swig
Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
At the bonfire

At the bonfire
Were all hanging at the bonfire

    General CommentThis is a song about a bonfire out in the sticks where hicks drink beer and dance to artists such as Hank Williams and AC/DC blared loudly from the cab of a muddy truck. When Sheriff John shows up all the folk get alarmed, but it turns out he just wanted to party so NBD. Everyone is welcome at the bonfire, but please BYOB. The party is going on all night and it's pretty easy to locate because of the glow of the bonfire.
