The Fire Down Below
by Bob Seger



Here comes ol' Rosie,
she's lookin' mighty fine.
Here comes hot Nancy,
she's steppin' right on time.
Here go the streetlights
bringin' on the night.
Here come the men,
faces hidden from the night.

All through the shadows
aw, they come and they go.
With only one thing in common -
they got the fire down below.

Here come the rich man
in his big, long limousine.
Here come the poor man
aw, he got to have his green.
Here come the banker
and the lawyer and the cop
One thing's for certain,
it ain't never gonna stop.

When it all gets too heavy
that's when they come and they go -
they go.
With only one thing in common -
they got the fire down below.

Well, it happens out in Vegas
it happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston,
up in Berkeley an'
out in Queens.
And it went on yesterday -
it's goin' on tonight.
Somewhere there's somebody ain't treatin' somebody right.

They lookin' out for Rosie
She's lookin' mighty fine.
They're roamin' the streets for Nancy
and they find her every time.
And when the street lights flicker
bringin' on the night
Well, they'll be slippin' in the darkness,
slippin' out of sight.

All through 'til (the) midnight,
watch 'em come and watch 'em go
ohhh, go.
With only one thing in common -
they got the fire down below.
Oh! burn it down below.

[guitar solo]

Well, it happens out in Vegas
It happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston,
up in Berkeley an'
out in Queens.
And it went on yesterday
it's goin' on tonight.
Somewhere there's somebody ain't treatin' somebody right.

They lookin' out for Rosie
She's lookin' mighty fine.
And they's walkin' the street for Nancy
and they find her every time.
And when the street lights flicker,
bringin' on the night
Well, they'll be slippin' in the darkness,
slippin' out of sight.

All through the shadows
aw, they come and they go
ohh, they go.
With only one thing in common -
they got the fire down below.

Aw, they got one thing in common -
they got the fire down below.

One - two - three!
[guitar solo and out]
