Intro: Dm  C

Dm                                C
I was born a baby boy a long time ago
Bb                                                      Dm      C
Back when the hillsides were green and the water would flow
     Dm                                C
But nights they fall and settle like snow
   Bb                                                    Dm    C
I watched as the hillsides turned white with nowhere to go


Bb                          Dm
Oh think I?m gonna start a fire
Bb                          Dm    C Dm
Oh think I?m gonna start a fire


        Dm                                           C
Now my heart?s a frozen lake where streams used to flow
Bb                                                Dm     C
Down to the forest of my mind where memory would grow
 Dm                                                C 
Now I walk amongst the trees where the last sun glows
     Bb                                             Dm   C
The leaves are all golden and brown with nowhere to go


Bb                          Dm
Oh think I?m gonna start a fire
Bb                          Dm    C Dm
Oh think I?m gonna start a fire


   Bb
My skin like these boulders
     C
Is cracking and older
      F                      Dm
With each passing year that goes
    Bb
My cliff face is crumbling
 C
Silently tumbling
F              Am    Dm
Down to the water below
    Bb
And if I light a match 
        C
I?ll be able to catch
      Am               Bb
The last sun before it goes


       Bb                             Dm
And oh well I think I?m gonna start a fire
     Bb                     Dm
Oh think I?m gonna start a fire
    Bb                          Dm   C
And oh think I?m gonna start a fire now
