Light My Fire
The Doors Lyrics


You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on, baby, light my fire
Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on, baby, light my fire
Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on, baby, light my fire
Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on, baby, light my fire
Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

This timeless masterpiece was recorded in August,1966!
That is almost 60 years ago.
What is not generally known is that Larry Knechtel plays Bass doubling Ray Manzarek's Organ Bass line.
Jim, Ray, Robby and John were strolling Venice Beach, CA, at the time this was recorded, being inspired by the beauty and serenity of the beach.
I recommend the early take of "Indian Summer" recorded on August 19,1966 but not included on The Doors' debut album!
They should have elbowed "Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar)" which I consider a throwaway.
The early take of "Indian Summer" was finally released on the 2006 remastered CD as a bonus track.
If interested, you it's on YouTube.

The best part is Jim Morrison actually trusted Robbie Krieger with writing the song he asked the band to actually come up with some material before Krieger wrote the opening riff
