lyrics

take a little woman
take her down to the prairie outside
build her a house made of wood
make a little fire inside
get some dinner cooking
let it boil and boil and stew
and when nobody's looking
let that woman make love to you
there's a reason
that's the trouble with having past
think of the words I say in a thoughtless way
that left you feeling bad
it's finally showing
by a table set for two
and the time that it took
let the dinner cook
yes and something happened too.

said a fire lit my way home,
yes it did

I'm on my way
houses passing by
let me stay,
tell me say goodbye
it isn't home
not a house made up wood
no there aint no stove
no fire cooking food

where are you going?
you're in danger of getting lost
it's been an hour and a day
and you're farther away yes farther away than you thought
where is your woman?
she's waiting back home for you
she's probably stewing
stewing like she likes to do
it's already over
made with the setting sun
fixed with a hand's that's aged in a
thoughtful way for meal that's just begun
there's no way of knowing
but the prairie knew a thing or two
cause as soon as you showed with your woman in tow
yea the prairie had a thing for you

said a fire lit my way home,
yes it did

I'm on my way
houses passing by
let me stay,
tell me say goodbye
it isn't home
not a house made up wood
no there aint no stove
no fire cooking food
