Burning Ground (Van Morrison)

And I take you down to the burning ground And you change me up and you turned it around In the wind and rain I'm gonna see you again In the morning sun and when the day is done And you take my hand and you walk with me Sometimes it feels like eternity And I turn the tide I get back my pride And I make you proud won't you say it out loud When I take you down to the burning ground To the burning ground, to the burning ground To the burning ground, to the burning ground And I take you down by the factory And I show you like it has to be And you understand how the work is done And I pick up the sack in the midday sun And I pull you through by the skin of your teeth And I lift the veil, I see what's underneath And you return to me and you sit on your throne And you make me feel that I'm not alone And I take you down to the burning ground To the burning ground, to the burning ground To the burning ground Hey man, what's that you're carrying? Feels like lead It weighs a ton, let's see if we can dump it by the side of the hill Hey wait up, why don't you dump it on the burning ground Dump it down there Yeh man, dump the Jute Hey man dump the Jute on the burning ground Dump the Jute? Yeh you know, dump the Jute Dump the Jute! On the burning ground On the burning ground And you make me think what it's all about Sometimes I know gonna work it out And I watch you run in the crimson sun Tear my shirt apart open up my heart And I watch you run Down on your bended knees By the burnt out well Can you tell me please Between heaven and hell Won't you take me down To the burning ground, to the burning ground To the burning ground, to the burning ground And you fall and pray, when you hear that sound As we're walking back to the burial mound And you shake your head and you turn it around And you see the flames from the burning ground And you get down on your knees and pray And I catch my breath as we're running away And I take the Jute and I throw him down On the burning ground, on the burning ground On the burning ground, it's on the burning ground.
