  • You can see it from the river
    To the top of white pine ridge
    Burning like a summer sun
    A bunch of rednecks getting half lit
    There's mud-covered trucks and S-U-V's
    Cranking up hank and A-C/D-C

    At the bonfire, out in the sticks
    Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
    Bonfire, dance a little jig,
    Hold up your cup and take another swig
    Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
    At the bonfire

    Everybody sees the headlights
    When old Sheriff John pulled up
    We all got a little nervous
    It's too late to hide our cups
    He popped a top and holled real loud
    Don't worry y'all I came to hang out

    At the bonfire, out in the sticks
    Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
    Bonfire, dance a little jig,
    Hold up your cup and take another swig
    Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
    At the bonfire

    You don't have to be from around here
    To know right where to go
    All you gotta do is load up
    And head towards glow

    At the bonfire, out in the sticks
    Country backwoods, homegrown hicks
    Bonfire, dance a little jig,
    Hold up your cup and take another swig
    Won't sleep til dawn, party right down to the wire
    At the bonfire

    At the bonfire
    Were all hanging at the bonfire Writer/s: TOM BOTKIN, KEVIN DENNEY, CRAIG MORGAN GREER, MICHAEL ROGERS
