Smoke from a distant fire (1977)
CAPO -2nd Fret

[Intro]
G - Am - Bm - Am

G                         Am               G - Am
You left me here on your way to paradise
G                         Am                     G - Am
You pulled the rug right out from under my life
G                         Am                                   G - Am
I know where you goin' to I knew when you came home last night
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
'Cause your eyes had a mist from the smoke of a distant fire

[G - Am - Bm - Am]

G                         Am                             G - Am
Lord, I was stung shoulda seen it come a long time ago
G                         Am                             G - Am
When I realized the reality gave me a roll
G                         Am                             G - Am
If things are the same then explain why your kiss is so cold
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
And that mist in your eyes feels like rain on the fire in my soul

[Bridge]
Abm                      Abm                                         Eb 
This lying, and cryin's upsettin' and getting no where
Abm                        Abm                                          Eb
It don't stack up, so slack up and pack up, I just don't care
Cm7                                             AbM
Don't let the screen door hit you, on your way out
Cm7                     AbM                                     A#                      C 
Don't you drown when your dream boat runs onto the ground

[G - Am - Bm - Am]

G                         Am                             G - Am
I'd just like to know do you love him or just making time
G                         Am                             G - Am
By filling his glass with your fast flowing bitter-sweet lies
G                         Am                             G - Am
He'll face the after taste when you come home late some night
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
With your eyes all a mist from the smoke of a distant fire

[G - Am - Bm - Am]

G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Well your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Your eyes have the mist from the smoke of a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Well your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Oh girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         
Mist in your eyes from a distant fire
G         C               E7               A7         D9      D
Girl your eyes have a mist from the smoke of a distant
D9      D
A distant fire

[G - Am - Bm - Am]

thanks for the tab...i'm thinking the F#7 might sound better as C#m...walk it down from a D bar chord...great tune!

Okay, so listening to this song again, I have a slight correction for the bridge. They are likely playing both on the recording, but if you are just playing by yourself, it sounds better to play:

F, Em,
Dm (Don't let the screen door)
Gm (Hit you, on your way)
Dm (out, don't you drown when your)
Gm (Dream boat runs)
C (onto the)
A (ground)

The correction here is replacing Bb/F and C/G with Gm and C respectively. A small change, and like I said, on the recording I think its both, but this is what I play now, after many listens and play-alongs.
