-Verse 1-
Bm                         D                 A
     When the wind picked up the fire spread
                      E                 Bm
And the grapevines seemed left for dead
                   D                             A
And the Northern sky looked like the end of days
The end of days

Bm                    D                 A
     The wake-up call to a rented room
                  E                      Bm
Sounded like an alarm of impending doom
                D                      A
To warn us it's only a matter of time

              Bm        D        A        E
Before we all burn
              Bm        D        A        Fm
Before we all burn
              Bm        D        A        E
Before we all burn
              Bm        D        A (hold A)
Before we all burn

-Verse 2-
Bm                   D                        A
      We bought some wine and some paper cups
                    E                            Bm
Near your daughters school when we picked her up
               D               A
And drove to a cemetery on a hill
On a hill

Bm                         D                     A
      And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray
                    E                               Bm
But she laughed and danced through the field of graves
             D                    A
And there I knew it would be alright
That everything

           Bm         D         A         E
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A         Fm
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A         E
Would be alright
           Bm         D         A (hold A)
Would be alright

C#                               D
     And the news reports on the radio
            A             Bm
Said it was getting worse
             D                  Fm
As the ocean air fanned the flames
     But I couldn't think
   D                   A           Bm
Of anywhere I would of rather been
            D          E
To watch it all burn away

         Bm        D         A         E
To burn away
Bm        D          A         Fm
Bm        D          A         E
Bm        D          A (hold A)

Bm        D          A         E
Bm        D          A         Fm
Bm        D          A         E
Bm        D          A (hold A)

Bm                      D                   A
      And the firemen worked in double shifts
                 E                Bm
With prayers for rain on their lips
                     D                 A (fade)
And they knew it was only a matter of time

I think the Fm should really be an F#m, in relation to the capo. (i.e. a Gm if played normally).

Great tab otherwise.

i noticed the same thing as cmoosey... other than that awesome job! Does anyone have a desire to sing "who's alone now it's not me, it's not me..." during the chorus. It's the same chords as that song... i can't help it. it just comes out when i hear/play this song.
