Sinner, you can't stand the fire;
Sinner, you can't stand the fire,
Sinner, you can't stand the fire,
Lord, I'm on my way.

Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]

3 My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]

Run, sinner, run, the fire's behind you,
Run, sinner, run, the fire's behind you,
Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]
