STANDARD TUNING
CAPO IS USED: I use it on the 4th as I think it sounds best there but it
seems to sound just as good on the 5th fret. Whichever sounds best to you.


[Intro]

Chord fingerings;
Am - 002210
C  - 032010
G  - 320000 (This way it sounds most representational of the song)
F  - 133210


[Intro]

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---1-------1----1---------1-3-1-0--0-------0----1------1--------------|
G|-------2-------2----0---0--------------0-------0---2-------2---2------|
D|-----2---2---2----2---2--------------0---0---0---3---3---3---3--------|

e|-----------------------------------3-------3----1------1--------------|
    Am            C                  G            F


That intro pattern repeats through first verses and is the same in all verses afterwards.

 "I let it fall..."                                 
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---1-------1----1---------1-3-1-0--0-------0----1------1--------------|

D|-----2---2---2----2---2--------------0---0---0---3---3---3---3--------|
A|---0-------0----3-----------------------------------------------------|
e|-----------------------------------3-------3----1------1--------------|
    Am            C                  G            F

Play it through until you reach the line "...without falling to your feet."
Then play the Refrain.


[Refrain]

 "There's a side..."
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------1-----1-----1-------------------------------------|
G|----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----------------------------------|
D|------3-----3-----3-----2-----2-----------[THIS IS PLAYED TWICE]------|
A|--------3-----3-----0-----0-----0-------------------------------------|
e|----1-----1-----1-----------------------------------------------------|
      F                Am


 On the third time through you play the F shape followed by the G shape:
                      "...always win always win."
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------0-----0-----0-----0-----0-------------------------|

[Chorus]

 "But I set Fire..."

B|----1-----1-----1---1-----1-----1---|
G|------2-----2-----2---2-----2-----2-|
D|--------2-----2---------2-----2-----|
A|----0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---|
e|------------------------------------|
     Am

 "Watched it pour..."

B|---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0----|
G|-----0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----0---------0-----0------|
A|------------------------------------|
e|---3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3----|
     G

 "Let it burn while I cried..."
e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|---2-----2-----2---2-----2-----2----|
D|-----3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3--|
A|-------3-----3---------3-----3------|
e|---1-----1-----1---1-----1-----1----|
     F

 "...your name."
e|------------------------------------|
B|---3-----3-----3---0-----0-----0----|
G|-----2-----2-----2---0-----0-----0--|
D|-------0-----0---------0-----0------|
A|---0-----0-----0--------------------|
e|-------------------3-----3-----3----|
     Dm              G

(The Dm seemed best to sound as close as possible, but don't trust my
hearing if you think there's a better alternative) 

Only other bit that differs that I thought might sound good is for the
Bridge. Essentially you play the same notes to the same bar as the Verses
but instead of finger picking you palm mute the notes with downstrokes to
break before the final Chorus.

"Sometimes I wake up by the door..."

e|---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------|
B|---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1------------------| [And obviously the same with the C  ]
G|---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------| [chord, the G chord and the F chord.]
D|---2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------| [At this stage each chord is played ]
A|---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------| [8 times each, and the set is played]
e|---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------------| [through twice to create the bridge.]

     x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x

The final part of the song which is the outro is the same notes as the
chorus repeated until the end of the same which play behind the final lyrics;

"Oooooh,
Let it burn, 
Let it burn..." etc.
