    No Fire on the mountain
    F         C
    No Fire on the hill
    C
    We ain't got no woodstove
    D        G G7
    We ain't got no still
    C
    We don't believe in propane
    F      C
    Mornings are a chill
    C
    But the basement light is always on
    G  G7      C
    Up on Crocker Hill

    (Chorus:)
        The basement light is always on
        Even if nobody may be home
        The basement light is always on
        Come with your dog, come alone
        If you need to get away
        Don't tell no one you've gone
        Come on in to Crocker Hill
        The basement light is on

    Welcome to the big house
    One big room and nothin' more
    We'll find you a place to sleep
    It might be on the floor
    There's no one for miles around
    But we always lock the door
    And the basement light is always on
    That's what it's there for

    (Chorus)

    Welcome to Brownsville
    The name is kinda nice
    We can't change it to Crockerville
    They won't give us the rights
    So we just call it Crocker Hill
    There's deer and birds and mice
    We made it an animal sanctuary
    It saved us on the price

    (Chorus)

    We stay safe up near the house
    We do not roam, we do not swerve
    But you can wander in the woods
    If you've think you've got the nerve
    Watch out for them fallin' trees
    Up around the curve
    You might get hit, you might get bit
    That's what you deserve


    (Chorus)
