FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN

Marshall Tucker Band

 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
We were diggin' and siftin' from five to five
sellin' everything we found just to stay alive
gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
sinnin' was the big thing, lord and Satan was his star
chorus
Dance hall girls were the evenin' treat
Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
Men were shot down for the sake of fun
Or just to hear the noise of their forty four guns
chorus
Now my widow she weeps by my grave
Tears flow free for her man she couldn't save
Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
All for a useless and no good worthless claim
chorus (2x) (end on G instead of Em)
