Fire On The Mountain

Marshall Tucker Band

Composed by: George McCorkle

Intro: G D Am C G

Em                          C
Took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home
Em                            C
Had dreams about the West and started to roam
Em                   C
Six long months on a dust covered trail
Em                                  C
They say heaven's at the end but so far it's been hell

Refrão:
C           G                     D
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Am                          C              Em
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Em                          C
We were diggin' and siftin' from five to five
Em                          C
sellin' everything we found just to stay alive
Em                          C
gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
Em                                  C
sinnin' was the big thing, lord and Satan was his star

Refrão:
C           G                     D
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Am                          C              Em
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Solo:
( G  D Am C G  D Am C )
( Em C Em C Em C Em C )

Em                       C
Dance hall girls were the evenin' treat
Em                                   C
Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
Em                        C
Men were shot down for the sake of fun
Em                                C
Or just to hear the noise of their forty four guns

Refrão:
C           G                     D
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Am                          C              Em
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Em                    C
Now my widow she weeps by my grave
Em                          C
Tears flow free for her man she couldn't save
Em                          C
Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
Em                           C
All for a useless and no good worthless claim

Refrão:
C           G                     D
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Am                          C              Em
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

C           G                     D
And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
Am                          C              G
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
