  • I'm feelin' last night this mornin'
    A train wreck pain in my head
    But when I reach for the hair of the dog in the drawer
    Found a dusty old Bible instead
    Thought I ain't been to service since my granddaddy passed
    Finish my cigarette out there on the front steps
    And then slipped in the back by myself

    You bring on the fire and brimstone
    Tell me I'm goin' to Hell
    Yeah, which one of you will throw the first stone?
    Well, I guess I'll see you there
    You bring on the fire

    And then I heard the reverend
    He said, "Turn and shake your neighbor's hand"
    One by one saw them all turn around just to stare back at me
    Like the wretch that I am

    You bring on the fire and brimstone
    Tell me I'm goin' to Hell
    Yeah, which one of you will throw the first stone?
    I guess I'll see you there
    You bring on the fire
    You bring on the fire
    Bring it on

    And out of spite I went down to the altar
    And almost all of them followed me there
    It turns out there's only one book and one cover (one cover)
    And they're all just glad I was there

    And we prayed for grace and forgiveness
    About faith, hope, and love
    And when I make my way to Heaven
    Oh, I pray he'll say "well done"

    You bring on the fire and brimstone
    Tell me I'm goin' to Hell
    Yeah, I know he died and rolled away the stone
    I guess I'll see him there
    You bring on the fire

    (Mmhm)
    Bring it on
    Bring it on
    Bring it on
    You bring it on

    There's a chance that when I get to Heaven
    Oh, He may not know me at all
    If that's the case, man, then I'll take my judgement
    Oh, but it won't be from y'all, no

    Bring on the fire
    You bring on the fire
    Bring it on
    Yeah, bring it on
    Yeah, bring on the fire Writer/s: Brantley Keith Gilbert
