Fire On The Mountain  George McCorkle/Marshall Tucker Band

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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