The Tiger Lillies – Start A Fire

The Tiger Lillies – Start A Fire (Chords)

It’s the annual Catholic Burning Festival in the UK tomorrow (or Bonfire Night as we’re supposed to call it now- it’s political correctness gone mad)) and Winger wanted songs with ‘fire’ and ‘burn’ in them. The suggestion alone made me scared of what she might do if I didn’t comply, so here’s the first one.

This song by the Tiger Lillies is the song with the most ‘fire’s and ‘burn’s (running Arthur Brown’s Fire into close second) and it’s dead simple to play (just C, F and G7).

    As if I’d do anything to hurt you….hold on a cottonpicking second….”wood”…”shed”…..perfect for burning!!!
    There are just too many to choose from here though, granted. I trust you to a good job as usual anyway.
