          E   Emaj7            F#m
She comes down     from Yellow Mountain
E      Emaj7               F#m
  On a dark, flat land she rides
Amaj7                    G#m
     On a pony she named Wildfire
Amaj7                 G#m
     Whirlwind by her side
F#m                   G#m     (intro lick)
   On a cold Nebraska night.


Oh, they say she died one winter
When there came an early frost
And the pony she named Wildfire
Busted down its stall,
In a blizzard she was lost.

                Amaj7  G#m
She ran calling Wild---fire,
        Amaj7  G#m
Calling Wild---fire,
        Amaj7 G#m        F#m   B    Amaj7  (intro lick)
Calling Wi----i----ld----fi----i----re.


E       Emaj7              F#m
 By the dark of the moon I planted
E          Emaj7         F#m
 But there came an early snow.              
Amaj7                           G#m
     Been a hoot owl howlin' outside my window now,
Amaj7                    G#m
     For six nights in a row.
F#m                       G#m
   She's comin' for me, I know
       F#m                       G#m
And on Wildfire we're both gonna go.    


We'll be ridin' Wildfire,
Ridin' Wildfire,
We'll be ridin' Wildfire
On Wildfire we're gonna ride,
Gonna leave sodbustin' behind.
Get these hard times right on out of our minds,
Ridin' Wildfire.


Here's how I play the chords. Your mileage may vary.
