Intro:
| A | A | D | E | A | A | A | A |

Verse 1:
A           Cmaj7             D              A   Cmaj7   D
Growing up, you don't see the writing on the wall
A           Cmaj7             D              A
Passing by, moving straight ahead, you knew it all
          F#m             D/F#
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain
                   F#m             D/F#            E
You'll find you're all alone, everything has changed

Verse 2:
A              Cmaj7              D               A   Cmaj7   D
Play the game, you know you can't quit until it's won
A           Cmaj7        D               A
Soldier on, only you can do what must be done
            F#m               D/F#
You know in some way you're a lot like me
              F#m                 D/F#               E/G#
You're just a prisoner and you're trying to break free

Chorus:
F#                      B              C#
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
F#                               B            C#
I'll be where the eagle's flying higher and higher
F#                          B                C#
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
F#                               B          C#
Take me where my future's lying, St. Elmo's Fire
D/F#        E/G#         A
Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooh

Verse 3:
A           Cmaj7               D              A   Cmaj7   D
Burning up, don't know just how far that I can go
A             Cmaj7       D                  A
Soon be home, only just a few miles down the road
      F#m        D/F#
I can make it, I know I can
              F#m                D/F#            E/G#
You broke the boy in me, but you won't break the man

Chorus:
F#                      B              C#
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
F#                               B            C#
I'll be where the eagle's flying higher and higher
F#                          B                C#
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
F#                               B          C#
Take me where my future's lying, St. Elmo's Fire
F#                                B         C#
I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea
F#                         B          C#
I can feel St. Elmo's Fire burning in me
D/F#        E/G#        A
Burning in me

Bridge:
| A | A | D | E | A | A | D | E |

A
Just once in his life
D             E
A man has his time
A
And my time is now
D           E
I'm coming alive

Chorus and Outro:
F#                           B              C#
I can hear the music playing, I can see the banners fly
F#                               B           C#
Feel like you're back again, and hope riding high
F#                          B                C#
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
F#                               B          C#
Take me where my future's lying, St. Elmo's Fire
F#                      B              C#
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
F#                               B            C#
I'll be where the eagle's flying higher and higher
F#                   B                               C#
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
F#                               B          C#
Take me where my future's lying, St. Elmo's Fire
F#                               B          C#
I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea
F#                         B          C#
I can feel St. Elmo's Fire burning in me
F#     B      C#    F#  B             C#
Burning, burning in me, I can feel it burning
F#  B     C#        F#        B  C#  F#
    Oooh, burning inside of me
