Vocal Intro:

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below

Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls

And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
                           Em
Keep watching over Durin's son

Verse:
              Em     G
If this is to end in fire
              D        C
Then we shall all burn together
          Em           G    D        Am7
Watch the flames climb high into the night
        Em    G     D            C
Calling out father, stand by and we will
          Am7         G/B            C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side

(Intro tab)
                 Em    G
And if we should die tonight
               D       C
Then we should all die together
        Em       G   D        Am7
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
        Em    G     D          C
Calling out father, prepare as we will
          Am7         G/B            C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Am7    G/B             C
Desolation comes upon the sky

Chorus:
          Em  C  D          Em
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      Em  C  D           Em
I see fire,  burning the trees
          Em  C  D         Em
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      Em  C  D            Am7
I see fire,  blood in the breeze

And I hope that you'll remember me


Intro  x 2

Verse:
              Em     G
Oh, should my people fall
            D           C
Then surely I'll do the same
            Em       G
Confined in mountain halls
           D            Am7
We got too close to the flame
        Em     G   D             C
Calling out father hold fast and we will
          Am7         G/B            C
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Am7    G/B             C
Desolation comes upon the sky


Chorus:
          Em  C  D          Em
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      Em  C  D           Em
I see fire,  burning the trees
          Em  C  D         Em
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      Em  C  D            Am7
I see fire,  blood in the breeze
                                Am7
And I hope that you'll remember me

Bridge:
           Am       Em
And if the night is burning
       G        D
I will cover my eyes
           Am     Em
For if the dark returns then
   G             D
My brothers will die
           Am            Em
And as the sky's falling down
           G                D
It crashed into this lonely town
              Am7
And with that shadow upon the ground
  G/B      C                D
I hear my people screaming out


Chorus:
          Em  C  D          Em
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      Em  C  D           Em
I see fire,  burning the trees
          Em  C  D         Em
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      Em  C  D            Em
I see fire,  blood in the breeze


      Em           C                 D        Em
I see fire, oh you know I saw a city burning (fire)
      Em         C                D     Em
I see fire, feel the heat upon my skin (fire)
          Em   C       D  Em
And I see fire, oooooo (fire)
          Em        C             D        Em
And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side
