Lloyd Cole - Forest Fire chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Artist: Lloyd Cole
Song: Forest fire
Tabbed by: DJ
20th April 2013

Tuning: Standard
CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in key of A)

This chord transcription is intended for an acoustic guitar accompaniment
for a singer. Instead of the long lead guitar solo coda, I just repeat the
last line of the final verse.

For those who want it, the lead solo follows the progression of the
first verse repeated twice, and then just repeats the Am7 - Cmaj7 - G - G. 

Chord shapes relative to capo position:
G     =  320033    Gmaj7 =  3x0032    C  = x32010
Bm    =  x24432    Am7   =  x02010
Cadd9 =  x32010    Am    =  x02210

                   G               Bm
She crossed her - self, as she put on her things,
           G                          Bm
She has promised once before...not to live this way,
                  Cadd9                      Gmaj7                Am7
If she don't calm down, she will burn herself out...like a forest fire,
Cmaj7                                G
       Well, doesn't that make you smile?

 
                   G                             Bm
If you don't slow down, I swear that I'll come 'round,
                   G                    Bm
And mess up your place, let's go for a spin,
                       Cadd9                                   Gmaj7
Say, we shouldn't even know each other, and that we'll be un - done,
                   Am7     Cmaj7                 G
Don't it make you smile,          like a forest fire?


              G                      Bm
I believe in love, I'll believe in anything...
                               G                   Bm
...That's gonna get me what I want, get me off my knees,
                          Cadd9           Gmaj7
Then we'll burn your house down, don't it feel so good?
                   Am7    Cmaj7                        G
It's like a forest fire...every time we get together!


 G                         Bm
Doo, doo - doo! Doo - doo, doo, doo - doo------,
 G                         Bm
Doo, doo - doo! Doo - doo, doo, doo - doo------,
    Cadd9
Hey, pick you up, put you down, rip you up, then spin you 'round,
     Gmaj7                                         Am
Just like we said we would, 'cause we're a forest fire,
      Am   Bm   C                           G
Be - lieve with me, we'll tear this place down!


                          G                             Bm
If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean,
                          G                             Bm
If we get caught in this wind----, we're gonna be un - done,
                        Cadd9                           Gmaj7
Ah, it's just a simple metaphor, and it's for a burning love,
                    Am    Am   Bm   C                  G
Don't it make you smile,                like a forest fire?


[Suggestion for coda, instead of lead solo]
                    Am    Am   Bm   C                  G
Don't it make you smile,                like a forest fire?
                    Am    Am   Bm   C            (Cadd9)      G    (Gmaj7)
Don't it make you smile,                like a... forest... fire?
