Burning - Zachary Richard, F. Wall, B. Wray
Set out from Saint Joe on no ordinary journey,
Headed down to New Orleans, working in the skin game.
But when I saw you, down by the muddy river,
I had to have you, so I became your prisoner.
Itís been and long time and things have gotten crazy,
I never thought that it could turn out this way.
Iíve got the notion, Iíd swim the ocean for your love,
Itís not devotion, itís just this burning in my heart.
Iím burning, burning, burning with desire,
Burning, captive of your fire.
It wonít be easy telling all the folks at home,
They wonít believe me and they wonít like it at all.
I never thought that I could turn my back on them.
Itís just this burning, itís just this burning from within.
