VERSE ONE:


Am                                       G
There is a rumble in the sky and all the world can hear it call

     Am                         F             Am
They shudder at the fury of the mighty Thunderball

                                   G
The power of her engines, now, has drowned in the sea

        Am                              F                 Am
But the deadly force from within her is somewhere running free


CHORUS:

F                 C                F                C
Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man
    
    F               C               Dm            Am 
And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand


VERSE TWO:

Am                                  G
Somewhere, there is a man who could stop the thing in time

      Am                         F                Am
He is known by very few but he's feared by all in crime

                                   G
By courage and by fighting, he has not been known to fall

    Am                          F             Am
But neither has the fury of the mighty Thunderball



F                 C                F                C
Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man
    
    F               C               Dm            Am 
And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand


VERSE THREE:

Am                        G
Money hungry minds need a threat to launch a scheme

    Am                                     F                  Am
But those, who hold the Thunderball, could rule the world, it seems

                                   G
Cannot the peaceful world find the clue to where she's gone

    Am                              F              Am
The silent sea won't answer now but terror lingers on



F                 C                F                C
Thunderball, your fiery breath can burn the coldest man
    
    F               C               Dm            Am 
And who is going to suffer from the power in your hand
