|G  /     |    /  / |F  /                                |       
     Watch out            you might get what you're after
|G  /     |      /  /|F  /                             |
     Cool babies           strange but not a stranger
|G  /     |   / / |F  /         |
      I'm an           ordinary 
|G  / |A                 |F  /   |
guy,     Burning down the house

Hold tight, wait till the party's over
Hold tight, we're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

|G                |              |F               |          |  
Here's your ticket pack your bag, time for jumpin' overboard
|G               |        |F        |       |
     The transportation is here
|G              |           |F              |             | 
Close enough but not too far, Maybe you know where you are
|G            |         |F      |       |  
      Fightin' fire with fire

All wet hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work baby what did you except
Gonna burst into flame

My house is out of the ordinary
That's right, don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect staring into your TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Nice. For playing on acoustic guitar to get a fuller sound I like to voice the F and G as Barre Chords and then A7 as x02223
