eToCache5 = ""; ?> Fire On The Mountain by George McCorkle/Marshall Tucker Band - guitar chords, guitar tabs and lyrics - chordie
 EmC
 Took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home
 EmC
 Had dreams about the West and started to roam
 EmC
 Six long months on a dust covered trail
 EmC
 They say heaven's at the end but so far it's been hell

chorus
 CGD
 And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
 AmCEm
 gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

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

chorus
 CGD
 And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
 AmCEm
 gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

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

chorus
 CGD
 And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
 AmCEm
 gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

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

chorus (2x) (end on G instead of Em)
 CGD
 And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
 AmCEm
 gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

 CGD
 And there's fire on the mountain, lightnin' in the air
 AmCG
 gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
