About this tab version
These chords and lyrics are based on the song information listed at michelleshocked.com, plus what I can remember from a bootleg cassette copy of her Short Sharp Shocked album that my mum used to play in the car about 20 years ago. Play with a lilt. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[VERSE]

A              G          A         G
Me and my friend and this boy named Eddie
       A          G      A
We was bored one afternoon
       A              G
We was sitting in the hay
         A         G
It was a hot Texas day
           A            G               A
And we was playing with matches like some kids do


         A          G                 A         G
We would throw our matches into the high dry grass
 A          G      A
Close our eyes and count to ten
       A              G
And then race the burning field
       A              G
Doing the toe and heel
          A                     G      A
We’d die laughing and do it all over again


[CHORUS]

(I'm singin')
  A                           G            A
Where there’s smoke there’s sure to be a fire
G                       A
Ready steady go it was down to the wire
        G             A
We was racing inevitability
        G                      A                            
We was making trouble for the V F D (That's the Volunteer Fire Department, now)


[BRIDGE 1]

A                                       G          
Well, I’m sure that you know how this story goes
A              G          A
Our little fire ran out of control
 G               A      
Somebody called for the V F D
   G               A
It was not me, it weren’t me, Jack


[VERSE]

      A                 G                
They drive from fifteen miles away
          A                G             
So by the time they arrived I’m sorry to say
A              G          
The field was black
A              G          
The sky was grey
A                      
And you know those barns they use to store the hay in? - Uh-huh


[VERSE]

        A              G         
The volunteers all shook their heads
 A                   G         
And then I recalled one of them said
 A              G         
This fire was no accident
        G                    A
No, this fire started with a match


[BRIDGE 2]

A                  G              A              G          
I slowly backed into the crowd - Me and Eddie we looked at each other
    A                G          
We never mentioned it to this day
          A                          A                   G          
But my friend, she went and told her mother (Aww, Jesus! - Can you believe that?)
A
She said--


[CHORUS OUTRO]

  A                           G            A
Where there’s smoke there’s sure to be a fire
G                       A
Ready steady go it was down to the wire
        G             A
We was racing inevitability
        G                      A                            
We was making trouble for the V F D
A                        G          
We was raising insurance premiums, ma
        A                G          
We was spreading fear of arson
        A                G          
We was spreading fear of arson
               A
All around -- Kelsey
