[Verse 1]
     C
It's Saturday night and the bar room is howlin'
     G                          C
With young weekend cowboys, all struttin' and a-prowlin'
                              Am
Drinkin' straight bourbon and tryin' not to shiver
      G                                  C
As it burns down their throats and plays hell with their liver
                                       G
On a small stage in the bar's furthest corner
                                   C
Sits Henry Holloway playin' his guitar
                                      F
Under the spotlight sweat on his face glistenin'
  G                          Dm     C
A-singin' his heart out with nobody listenin'

[Chorus]
F                     C
Fire in the belly and fire in the soul
  G                      C
Ambition's a fire that's hard to control
F                             C
Burnin' with bright dreams of money and fame
G                      Dm          C
Young Henry Holloway's lost in the flames

[Verse 2]
       C
Evelyn sits by the stage she's the only one clappin'
     G                           C
With eyes brightly shinin', feet in time a-tappin'
                         Am
Face full of love as she watches her man
       G                             C
In his shirt of blue rhinestones she sewed on by hand
                                   G
Sweet red lips movin' as she sings along
                                C
Joinin' with Henry on his every song
                                            F
Although she's heard them about one million times
       G                    Dm            C
'Cause love is tone deaf as well as stone blind!

[Chorus]
F                     C
Fire in the belly and fire in the soul
  G                      C
Ambition's a fire that's hard to control
F                             C
Burnin' with bright dreams of money and fame
G                      Dm          C
Young Henry Holloway's lost in the flames

[Verse 3]
        C
Now the noise in the bar's like a volcano explodin'
    G                     C
But up on the stage young Henry is floatin'
                                 Am
Eyes closed and driftin' through his favorite dream
G                       C
He sings of places that he's never seen
                                           G
Like Nashville and Memphis, New York and L.A.
                             C
You can bet even money he'll get there someday
                                    F
But if he don't, he might just not care
            G                   Dm           C
'Cause when he sings his songs, he's already there

[Chorus]
F                     C
Fire in the belly and fire in the soul
  G                      C
Ambition's a fire that's hard to control
F                             C
Burnin' with bright dreams of money and fame
G                      Dm          C
Young Henry Holloway's lost in the flames

[Verse 4]
    C
Now Saturday night's turned into Sunday mornin'
    G                     C
The bar room is empty the bar tender's yawnin'
                               Am
Home go the cowboys with their jeans and high boots
     G                           C
Come Monday they'll put on their ties and dark suits
                               G
Back to the motel go Henry and Evelyn
                          C
She falls asleep with her arms wrapped around him
                                            F
She dreams of motel rooms and cheap crowded bars
      G                    Dm            C
Henry lies wide awake, and dreams of the stars

[Chorus]
F                     C
Fire in the belly and fire in the soul
  G                      C
Ambition's a fire that's hard to control
F                             C
Burnin' with bright dreams of money and fame
G                      Dm          C
Young Henry Holloway's lost in the flames
