Light It On Fire
by: Cowboy Mouth

Previously from Domino "Word of Mouth"
and Monkey Hill "Mouthin' Off (Live + More)"
and Paul Sanchez's solo "Jet Black and Jealous"
Written by Paul Sanchez, vocals by Fred LeBlanc

Originally tabbed by: Pete Rasche 
Re-tabbed by: Kevin League (mleague@mindspring.com)

Pete Rasche posted this song already, but I found many mistakes in key
parts of the song, so I decided to correct them and add a few
things(including the solo). 

This main riff is played by one guitar during the verse.  The other guitar
plays E and A. 

MAIN RIFF:

Verse 1:
E                   A
It's four A.M., I'm drunk and alone
E                  A    
Tryin' to call you on a public phone
E                  A
I  wanted passion, I wanted desire
B
My heart is a flame that pains me if I do not

CHORUS:
A	    E
Light it on Fire
	       A 	E
If I do not light it on fire
	       A	E
If I do not light it on fire
	       A  (n.c.)
If I do not light it on fire

VERSE 2: 
I'm the perfect picture of a perfect fool
You're out doin' what I wanted ya' to
I'm in heartbreak hotel and there's a desk clerk for hire
My heart is a flame that pains me if I do not

CHORUS




BRIDGE:
D A E   A	  E	
	How can I tell you
D A E   A	    E
	Just how it feels
D A E   A	    E
	How can you make love stay and
A                  B
	How do you know if what's stayin' is real

VERSE 3 
I was the one full of whiskey and talk
I was the one with the skip in my walk
You say the truth hurts, well so does a liar
My heart's a flame that pains.....

CHORUS
(repeated with A E chords into MAIN RIFF close)

That's about it.  The solo might take a little practice to get right.  Laterz!
