Lyrics

THE TEXAS CAMPFIRE SONG
(Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay)

INTRO (instrumental)

V1
There's a magic place in the hills of San Antone
Come with me to the Hill Country where the cowboys used to roam
We'll pitch a tent and light a fire and pull out our guitars
We'll walk from fire to fire singin' underneath the stars
Singin':

CH
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay-hey!
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay
Hey! Hey Hey!

V2
We'll see little children ridin' on their daddies' backs
Old worn out VW vans near new black Cadillacs
It reminds us how music loves all kinds of company
A caravan of campers singin' songs that set them free
Singin':

CH
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay (etc.)

BR
From Austin and from Boston and from the California coast
We come here to sing about how we feel
From Canada we fly and from Nashville we ride
Just to sit around these campfires in the hills
And we play...
All night and day - hey!
Singin':

CH
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay (etc.)

CLIMB
Up! Up! Up! Up!
(live ad lib)

V3
When the sun comes up and the tents come down we'll be rollin' home
But we'll still hear the music in the hills of San Antone
And we'll still see the circle of faces shinin? in the light
The fire and the spirit will still be burnin? bright
And we'll be singin'
Singin':

CH
Ki-Yippi-Yi-Yi-Yay (etc.) x2 (live ad libs, Now let me really hear you! )
