Well you got no quarter for the carousel
So you’re hanging round listening to the barkers yell
And all the boys with whiskey going straight to hell
Change jingling in their pockets like the ringing of the bells

But you blink your eyes just one at a time
Cause you’ve got no business on the wild side
Can’t beat the joker with a pair of fives
Anyone that tells you different is just feeding you lies

But it’s this fire I’ve been breathing
Well it’s gonna be the end of me
You can lead me to the water
Tell mamma that her daughter’s been saved
But if I fall just let me be

I got a little fire, Lord I feel it burn
Burning for the pretty little way things were
Can’t help but fall in love with all the stories I’ve heard
When the truth was in the telling all you needed was the word

So you wander on down the road a ways
Try to remember what the preacher said
To the skinny little girl with the pigtail braids
Said it so sweet she swore she’d take it to her grave

Said it’s this fire I’ve been breathing
Well it’s gonna be the end of me
You can lead me to the water
Tell mamma that her daughter’s been saved
But if I fall just let me be

But it’s this fire I’ve been breathing
Well it’s gonna be the end of me
You can lead me to the water
Tell mamma that her daughter’s been saved
But if I fall just let me be
