[Intro]
B  A  2x


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


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


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


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


[Interlude]
B  A  4x


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


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