[Intro] | D4 F4 G4 - | D4 F4 G#4 G4 | D4 F4 G4 - | F4 D4 - - |x6


[Verse 1]

   G5 ///          G5 ///
We all came out to Montreux
       G5 /   F5 / G5 ///    
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
G5 ///                 G5 /// 
To make records with a mobile
G5 /      F5 /      G5 ///
We didn't have much time
G5 ///              G5 ///
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
     G5 /        F5 /  G5 ///
Were at the best place around
G5 ///                 G5 ///
But some stupid with a flare gun
G /              F /    G ///
Burned the place to the ground


[Chorus]

C5 ///       G#5 /// G5 ///             G5 /// 
Smoke on the water,     fire in the sky
C5 ///       G#5 ///
Smoke on the water...


[Intro] | D4 F4 G4 - | D4 F4 G#4 G4 | D4 F4 G4 - | F4 D4 - - |x6


[Verse 2]

     G5 ///          G5 /// 
They burned down the gambling house
   G5 /         F5 /  G5 ///
It died with an awful sound
G5 ///           G5 ///
Funky Claude was running in and out
G5 /         F5 /  
Pulling kids out the ground
G5 ///          G5 ///
When it all was over
   G5 /        F5 /    G5 ///
We had to find another place
G5 ///             G5 ///
But Swiss time was running out
   G5 /                 F5 /     G5 ///
It seemed that we would lose the race


[Chorus]

C5 ///       G#5 /// G5 ///             G5 ///
Smoke on the water,     fire in the sky
C5 ///       G#5 ///
Smoke on the water...

[Verse 3]

G5 ///             G ///
We ended up at the Grand Hotel
G5 /   F5 /  G5 /// 
It was empty cold and bare
G5 ///                     G5 ///
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
G5 /       F5 /  G5 ///
Making our music there
       G5 ///               G5 ///   
With a few red lights and a few old beds
G5 /      F5 /     G5 ///
We make a place to sweat
G5 ///            G5 ///
No matter what we get out of this
G5 /    F5 /         G5 ///     
I know, I know we'll never forget


[Chorus]

C5 ///       G#5 /// G5 ///             G5 ///
Smoke on the water,     fire in the sky
C5 ///       G#5 ///
Smoke on the water...

The D4 is also a G5...

3 5 x x x x is the same chord as x 5 5 x x x

The same applies to F4 (Bb5), G4 (C5) and G#4 (C#5).

No. D4 is rooted on the D note, G5 is rooted on the G note. Yes, they contain the same notes, but the order is significant. Blackmore played it in 4ths. Playing it in 5ths sounds wrong.
