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
                           BbmBbm chord
Keep watching over Durin's son

Verse:
              BbmBbm chord     DbDb chord
If this is to end in fire
              AbAb chord        GbGb chord
Then we shall all burn together
          BbmBbm chord           DbDb chord    AbAb chord        Ebm7Ebm7 chord
Watch the flames climb high into the night
        BbmBbm chord    DbDb chord     AbAb chord            GbGb chord
Calling out father, stand by and we will
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord         FmFm chord            GbGb chord
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side


                 BbmBbm chord    DbDb chord
And if we should die tonight
               AbAb chord       GbGb chord
Then we should all die together
        BbmBbm chord       DbDb chord   AbAb chord        Ebm7Ebm7 chord
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
        BbmBbm chord    DbDb chord     AbAb chord          GbGb chord
Calling out father, prepare as we will
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord         FmFm chord            GbGb chord
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Ebm7Ebm7 chord    FmFm chord             GbGb chord
Desolation comes upon the sky

Chorus:
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord          BbmBbm chord          
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord           BbmBbm chord
I see fire,  burning the trees 
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord         BbmBbm chord
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord            Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I see fire,  blood in the breeze

And I hope that you'll remember me

Verse:
              BbmBbm chord     DbDb chord
Oh, should my people fall
            AbAb chord           GbGb chord
Then surely I'll do the same
            BbmBbm chord       DbDb chord
Confined in mountain halls
           AbAb chord            Ebm7Ebm7 chord
We got too close to the flame
        BbmBbm chord     DbDb chord   AbAb chord             GbGb chord     
Calling out father hold fast and we will
          Ebm7Ebm7 chord         FmFm chord            GbGb chord
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
    Ebm7Ebm7 chord    FmFm chord             GbGb chord
Desolation comes upon the sky

Chorus:
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord          BbmBbm chord          
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord           BbmBbm chord
I see fire,  burning the trees 
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord         BbmBbm chord
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord            Ebm7Ebm7 chord
I see fire,  blood in the breeze
                                Ebm7Ebm7 chord
And I hope that you'll remember me

Bridge:
           BbmBbm chord       DbDb chord
And if the night is burning
       AbAb chord        GbGb chord
I will cover my eyes
           BbmBbm chord     DbDb chord
For if the dark returns then
   AbAb chord             Ebm7Ebm7 chord
My brothers will die
           BbmBbm chord            DbDb chord
And as the sky's falling down
           AbAb chord                GbGb chord
It crashed into this lonely town
              Ebm7Ebm7 chord                   
And with that shadow upon the ground
  FmFm chord      GbGb chord                AbAb chord
I hear my people screaming out

Chorus:
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord          BbmBbm chord          
Now I see fire,  inside the mountain
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord           BbmBbm chord
I see fire,  burning the trees 
          BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord         BbmBbm chord
And I see fire,  hollowing souls
      BbmBbm chord  GbGb chord  AbAb chord            BbmBbm chord
I see fire,  blood in the breeze


      BbmBbm chord           GbGb chord                 AbAb chord        BbmBbm chord 
I see fire, oh you know I saw a city burning -fire-
      BbmBbm chord         GbGb chord                AbAb chord     BbmBbm chord
I see fire, feel the heat upon my skin -fire-
          BbmBbm chord   GbGb chord       AbAb chord  BbmBbm chord 
And I see fire, oooooo -fire-
          BbmBbm chord        GbGb chord             AbAb chord        BbmBbm chord
And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side

  1. What is the strumming pattern???

  2. This is how I play the intro

    A:————————-x—0h2–2–x—0–x-
    E:——————0h1—x–3—–3–x—0–x-
    C:-2h4p2—-2h4–0—x—0h2—–x—0–x-
    G:———0——-2——x————-x—2–x-

  3. Addictwitha_uke

    The strumming pattern I use is: X X
    Down on the first beat, down and up D DU D
    on the 2 &, and down again on the fourth.

  4. watched the hobbit today and was like “totally need to play this.” happy new years, dudes!

  5. I found -4 to work best with my voice :)

  6. This is a riff that I came up with myself
    ( And if want to play this you have to do +4 so it’s in the right key )

    G– 0/2/0————————————-
    C—————-0/2———————-0/2
    E————-1———–1/3——-1-1——
    A———————1———-3————-

    Hope y’all like it!

  7. The riff throuhg out the song is

    G—————0———2———–2
    C—2/4/2—0—-2/4—0—–2—-0
    E————————-0/1—3—-0
    A——————————-0/2—0

    / Means hammer on

  8. +1 is easier to sing for me

  9. I’m in love with this! Thnx!

  10. Ukulele Dreamer

    Can anyone tell me the picking/strumming pattern?

  11. What’s the strumming pattern?

  12. *UPDATE* Don’t hammer-on the C chord. It sounds better just as a regular strum.

  13. There is a YouTube tutorial for the intro. It’s 1 step down so change key to -1. Basically start with 1st finger on second fret of second string. Pluck and hammer-on 2nd and 4th fret then hammer-off back down to open c. So 2 4 2 0 on second string with only one pluck. Then pluck 1st string. Then strum up open chord Am7 with a hammer-on the 2nd fret of 1st string to play Am. Then strum down Am7 with a hammer on 3rd fret of 4th string to play C. Then strum a G chord with the last string open and hammer-on second fret of 4th string to play G. Then strum F chord. Practice 1st step until it sounds clear and fast then add each step one at a time until you can play the whole intro. If you have a capo on the first fret the fingering is the same and in the original key.

  14. lcutsinger

    +1 works best for me

  15. What should I use instead of Dm7

  16. Really good on -1 ?
