Fire On The Mountain
Marshall Tucker Band

Em                             C
Took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home
We were diggin' and siftin' from five to five
Dance hall girls were the evenin' treat
Now my widow she weeps by my grave

Em                             C
Had dreams about the West and started to roam
sellin' everything we found just to stay alive
Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
Tears flow free for her man she couldn't save

Em                             C
Six long months on a dust covered trail
gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
Men were shot down for the sake of fun
Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame

Em                             C
They say heaven's at the end but so far it's been hell, And there's
sinnin' was the big thing, lord and Satan was his star, And there's
Or just to hear the noise of their forty four guns, And there's
All for a useless and no good worthless claim, And there's

G                         D
    Fire on the mountain,      lightnin' in the air                                 
Am                           C          Em               (  C            G   )
     Gold in them hills and it's waitin for me there            (Waitin 4 me there)

Need the chords over the words in at least
the first it's confusing to
have the chorus at the bottom yet nothing
saying it is the chorus or when to go to
it...don't assume everyone knows the song
the way you do.

I gotcha. I'll get it right next time.

The words are also not in the correct order. You have lines from each verse in each verse. Take your time when tabbing and you'll do fine.

That's funny cause that's how I do mine especially when I'm trying to save space. No one ever taught me to do it that way, I just do it that way. Also the lyrics "seem" right to me. But maybe you've changed the lyrics since that comment was posted.
