    G C G
    G D7 G

G         C       G    G C G
Love is a burning thing
               D7    G   G D7 G
And it makes a fiery ring
         C       G   G C G
Bound by one's desire
                   D7      G
I fell down into a ring of fire


D7            C               G
I fell into a burning ring of fire 
     D7                     C           G
Went down down down and the flames went higher
                          D7      G         D7      G
It burns burns burns that ring of fire that ring of fire


    G        C       G    G C G
The taste of love is sweet 
                 D7   G   G D7 G
When hearts like ours meet
               C      G   G C G
I fell for you like a child
             D7        G
Ohhh but the fire went wild

Went down down down and the flames went higher
                          D7      G         D7      G
It burns burns burns that ring of fire that ring of fire

Regular D sounds indeed much better for me. Also, not to depreciate what was done, but the lyrics seems a bit off. First verse should be

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

anyway, thx for the hard work!

Ruby Sophia

Yep! Regular D is sooooo much better!

Nel

i don’t believe so

I changed the 7th to a regular major chord for the first two 7ths in the chorus. If you are looking for really easy chord transitions, -7 is the best.

I learned +5 from Fender Play, except they don’t have the lyrics, so I came here. For strumming I do C=DDDD DD then the chord f or c7 DD for the begging of the song. Then the courus the same except for C7

Guys I’m the biggest Johnny cash fan on planet earth and I am so happy that this is on here. I’m kinda disappointed that other Johnny cash songs aren’t on here, though. It’s a bummer?

Ukeperson

What’s the strum pattern?

Sage Wilcox

If you transpose up either to +5 or +2 or down to -5 you’ll have easier cords. I personally like the sound of -5 the best

Naan

You should use the Hawaiian D7 instead of the regular D7. Sounds a lot better imo.

Sitting Duck

I believe the original key is +2 here. D – E7 – A. Yes, I know, I know… but when you nail that E7-A-E7 it is saaaweet!

theeighteenthpilot

Bro that’s perfect thanks!!

thethotbot

Thanks for this! I feel that sometimes a regular D sounds better in this song than D7

Nel

I don’t believe so
