Written by Ed Nelson and Fred Rose.  
Recorded by Hank Williams, June 13, 1952

(C) Comb your hair and paint and powder, (C7)
(F)You act proud and I'll act prouder, 
(G) You sing loud and I'll sing louder, 
Tonight we're settin' the woods on (C) fire,  
You're my gal and I'm your feller, (C7)
(F)-Dress up in your frock of yeller,
(G7) I'll look swell, but you'll look sweller,
Settin' the woods on (C) fire.  (C7)

First chorus:

We'll (F) take in all the honkey tonks,
To - (C) night we're havin' fun,
We'll (D7) show the folks a brand new dance,
That (G7) nev - (stop playing) er has been done,
(C) I don't care who thinks we're silly, (C7)
(F) You be Daffy and I'll be Dilly,
We'll (G7) order up two bowls of chili,
Settin' the woods on (C) fire.

Verse 2:

(C) I'll gas up my hot rod stoker, (C7)
(F) We'll get hotter than a poker,
(G7) You'll be broke, but I'll be broker,
Tonight we're settin' the woods on (C) fire,
We'll set close to one another, (C7)
(F) Up one street and down the other,
(G7) We'll have a time oh brother,
Settin' the woods on (C) fire. (C7)

Second chorus:

We'll (F) put aside a little time,
To (C) fix a flat or two,
My (D7) tires and tubes are doing fine,
But the (G7) air  (stop playing) is showin' through,
(C) You clap hands and I'll start bowin', (C7)
(F) We'll do all the law's allowin',
To - (G7) morrow I'll be right back plowin',
Settin the woods on (C) fire.
