by Dathan Tinney Dashing through the woods, with a drip torch open flame O'er slopes we go, lighting all the way Trees on hilltops burn, while making darkness bright Oh what fun it is to light a string and set this control burn off tonight.

Burning hills, burning hills, the trees are all okay. Oh what fun it is to light, with a drip torch open flame.

A day or two ago, we set this line up right. Cut the snags down low, so their cinders won't ignite Cleared the edge of fuel, won't have mop-up last all night. So while the wind speed 's low, get this backburn working right.

Burning hills, burning hills, the trees are all okay. Oh what fun it is to light, with a drip torch open flame.

Now the ground is black, the leaves are gone from sight The flowers that will bloom, will make this glade alright. Habitats restored, the animals delight. Tired, sore, and bruised - should sleep soundly through the night

Burning hills, burning hills, the trees are all okay. Oh what fun it is to light, with a drip torch open flame.
