"Build a Fire" as written by James Francis Cauty and William Ernest Drummond....
Pulled up to rest, let the engine cool awhile.
Open the beans, gather wood for the fire.
I hum this tune, to all the girls I've known.
Should I care, about the chances I've blown?

Build a fire, they're gonna build a fire
Build a fire, they're gonna build a fire
They're gonna build a fire
They're gonna build a fire

When daylight breaks, I'll be down that road.
Rockman 'an me, with a lighter load.
We'll stop for lunch, in some taco bar.
Lee Marvin on the jukebox, 'Wanderin Star'.

Build a fire, they're gonna build a fire
Build a fire, they're gonna build a fire
