Intro Lick:
E Emaj7 F#m repeat
 ---------9-(let ring)------9-(let ring)------11-(let ring)

She comes [E]down[Emaj7] from Yellow [F#m]Mountain
[E] On a [Emaj7]dark, flat land she [F#m]rides
[Amaj7] On a pony she named [G#m]Wildfire
[Amaj7] Whirlwind by her [G#m]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.
She ran calling [Amaj7]Wild---[G#m]fire,
Calling [Amaj7]Wild---[G#m]fire,
Amaj7 G#m F#m B Amaj7 (intro lick)
 Calling Wi----i----ld----fi----i----re.

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