Lyrics
(Capo: 6)

[Intro]

Oh misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
                            Em
Keep watching over Durin's sons

(Solo guitar) x2


[Verse 1]

             Em        G
If this is to end in fire
         D             C
Then we shall burn together
           Em          G      D        Am7
Watch the flames climb high into the night
           Em      G      D         C
Calling out father oh, stand by and we will
           Am7         Bm7             C
Watch the flames burn on and on the moutainside

(Solo Guitar)

[Verse 2]

                 Em   G
And if we should die tonight
               D        C
Then we should all die together
         Em      G    D        Am7
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
        Em          G     D         C
Calling out father, oh, prepare as we will
           Am7            Bm7         C
Watch the flames burn on and on, the mountain side
     Am7    Bm7           C
Desolation comes upon the sky


[Chorus]

           Em   C
Now I see fire
 D          Em
Inside the mountain
        Em    C
I see fire
 D          Em
Burning the trees
           Em   C
And I see fire
 D         Em
Hollowing souls
          Em    C
And I see fire
  D          Am7
Burning the breeze
           Am7
And I hope that you remember me


(Solo Violin and Cello)


[Verse 3]

              Em      G
Oh, should my people fall then
       D           C
Surely I'll do the same
            Em        G
Confined in mountain halls
           D             C
We got too close to the flame
        Em       G        D         C
Calling out father, oh, hold fast and we will
            Am7          Bm7          C
Watch the flames burn on and on the mountain side
     Am7     Bm7          C
Desolation comes upon the sky


[Chorus]

          Em     C
Now I see fire
D            Em
Inside the mountain
        Em     C
I see fire
D               Em
Burning the trees
          Em    C
And I see fire
D       Em
Hollowing souls
           Em    C
And I see fire
D                Am7
Burning the breeze

And I hope that you'll remember me


[Bridge]

              Am        Em
And if the night is burning
         G        D
I will cover my eyes
             Am     Em
For if the dark returns then
      G           D
My brothers will die
            Am            Em
And as the sky's falling down
              G             D
It crashed into this lonely town
               Am7       
And with that shadow upon the ground
Bm7   C                    D
I hear my people screaming out


[Outro]

           Em     C
Now I see fire
D            Em
Inside the mountain
        Em     C
I see fire
D               Em
Burning the trees
           Em    C
And I see fire
D       Em
Hollowing souls
         Em    C
And I see fire
D                Am7
Burning the breeze

        Em  C                  D      Em
I see fire    (oh you know I saw a city burning) fire
        Em  C                   D    Em
I see fire   (feel the heat upon my skin) fire
        Em  C         D     Em
I see fire   (Oooohh) fire
               Em         C        D          Em
And I see fire burn on and on, the mountain side



PS: There are some little details in the song that I didn't put here, like some 
notes on the verse's final, 
some little guitar patterns changes and the fact that are two guitars on the bridge part. 
But if you listen the song thoroughly you can take these details.
