[Intro]
E Am E

[Verse]
Am                      
    Didn't seem so profound when it hit me,
           G      
I'd burned everything down and stood around like a chimney,
    F            
and everything I found in the ashes around me
       E
turned brown from the mud on the ground and the whiskey
           Am              
I'd poured all through the house to make the flames burn more quickly
         G
Like the burn in my throat that made me this sickly.
            F
But it take more takes more than fire to take down a chimney so I 
E
laughed at the flames as they jumped up to get me.

[Chorus]
      Am
It... puzzles me how
             G
not everyone gets me
                                            F                                   
If it isn't clear now you can find out more quickly what I'm really about by burning an 
E
oak tree I'm the fuel and the fire both 
Am
struggling
G
struggling
F
struggling
        E
I'm the fuel and the fire both struggling for victory!

[Verse 2]
         Am
And it's hard to stay around, when everything that was with me has 
G
burned to the ground, it turns and it hits me,
         F
I hope I never go down, I hope history skips me and I 
E
just stick around you'll have to leave here to miss me!
             Am 
'Cause I'm a metaphor, now, for a confused little city
G
Richmond's downtown, well it might never fix me
         F
But I'll argue all night about who doesn't need pity. 
                 E
I'll say, "these flames aren't so hot, ya know, they're really quite pretty!"

[Chorus]
      Am
It... puzzles me how
             G
not everyone gets me
                                            F                                   
If it isn't clear now you can find out more quickly what I'm really about by burning an 
E
oak tree down. I'm the fuel and the fire both 
Am
struggling
G
struggling
F
struggling
        E
I'm the fuel and the fire both struggling for victory!

[Break]
Am G F E x4

[Chorus]
Am
   Puzzles me how
             G
not everyone gets me
                                            F                                   
If it isn't clear now you can find out more quickly what I'm really about by burning an 
E
oak tree down. I'm the fuel and the fire both 
Am
Struggling (Woo-oo, Wooooo)
G
Struggling (Woo-oo, Wooooo)
F
Struggling (Woo-oo, Wooooo)
        E
I'm the fuel and the fire both struggling for victory!
