[Intro]
A  G  2x


[Verse]
A                                 G
Long distance runner, what you standin there for?
A                         G
get up get out, get out of the door
A                         G
your playin cold music on the barroom floor
A                          G
your drowned in your laughter and dead to the core
A                          G
theres a dragon with matches thats loose in the town
A                           G
takes a whole pail of water, just to cool him down


[Chorus]
A                 G
Fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain


[Verse]
A                        G
Almost ablaze, still you dont feel the heat
A                             G
it takes all you got, just to stay on the beat
A                        G
you say its a living, we all gotta eat
A                                 G
but your in here alone, theres no one to compete
A                       G
if mercys in business i wish for you
A                              G
more than just ashes when your dreams come true


[Chorus]
A                 G
Fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain


[Interlude]
A  G  4x




[Verse]
A                              G
Long distance runner, what you holdin out for
A                           G
caught in slow motion, in a dash for the door
A                                  G
the flame from your stage, has now spread to the floor
A                             G
you gave all you had, why you want to give more
A                           G
the more that you give, the more it will take
A                                  G
to the thin line beyond which, you really can't fake


[Chorus]
A                 G
Fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
A                 G
fire, fire on the mountain
