[Verse 1]
            G
First cool snap of fall in the air
           C
We been waitin' on it all damn year
            D
Drag out a Carhartt and a chair
               G
Let's build a fire
                  G
Shoulder pads crackin' on a high-school field
        C
Openin' day is on our heels
       D
God I love how Friday night feels
               G 
Let's build a fire
[Chorus]
               G
Let's build a fire let's crank it on up
                C
Pour a little diesel in my cup
                    D
I'm fixin' toss it on y'all better back up
               G
Let's build a fire
                   G
You can't burn it down in the neighbourhood
              C
But it's all good back in the backwoods
         D
Let the good time just transpire
               G
Let's build a fire

[Verse 2]
          G
We been talkin' 'bout it since July
           C
Temp done dropped down to forty-five
            D
Think it's time we take it higher
               G
Let's build a fire
               G
Com? a little closer if you can
                 C
Put your little h?art in my hand
        D
Turn me on like an amplifier
               G
Let's build a fire

[Chorus]
               G
Let's build a fire let's crank it on up
               C
Pour a little diesel in my cup
                   D
I'm fixin' toss it on y'all better back up
               G
Let's build a fire
                  G
You can't burn it down in the neighbourhood
             C
But it's all good back in the backwoods
         D
Let the good time just transpire
               G
Let's build a fire
Oh here we go!

[Chorus]
               G
Let's build a fire let's light it on up
               C
Pour a little diesel in a Sonic cup
                   D
I'm fixin' toss it on y'all better back up y'all better back up
                   G
You can't burn it down in the neighbourhood
              C
But it's all good back in the backwoods
          D
Let the good time just transpire
                G
Let's build a fire
Oh burn it down boys!
