Ok so the intro and the fill are almost identical as you can see.
But the intro has this little thingy in the end.
If you find the intro too difficult to play then just play it
like you play the fill. It's not super important and most people
wouldn't hear the difference.

When playing the chords in the song, alternate between "bass" strings (ead) and "treble" strings (gbe)
(or muted/half muted treble strings to give a more percussive feel if you are playing alone on the guitar.)
So that you're playing the bass strings on the beats 1 and 3, and the treble strings on the beats 2 and 4. 


^  = down strum (eadgbe)
v  = up strum (ebgdae)
() = optional

[CHORUS]

F                       Am     G#m Gm
I don't want to set the world  on  fire,
Bbm C7                                 Play FILL once
I   just want to start a flame in your heart.
F                      Am  G#m Gm
In my heart I have but one de--sire,
Bbm C7                             F Bbm F
and that one is you, no other will do-o-o.
 

[BRIDGE]

     Cm7         F7         Cm7        F7
I've lost all am-bition for worldly ac-claim;
Bb
I just want to be the one you lo-ove.
    Dm7          G7           Dm7          G7
And with your ad-mission that you feel the same,
G7                                      C7
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of, believe me.
 

[CHORUS]

F                       Am    G#m Gm
I don't want to set the world on  fire,
Bbm C7                                 Play FILL once
I   just want to start a flame in your heart.


[CHORUS] (spoken)

I don't wanna set the world on fire, honey. I love you too much.
I just wanna start a great big flame down in your heart.
You see, way down inside of me, darling, I have only one desire.
And that one desire is you and I know nobody else ain't gonna do.


[BRIDGE]

     Cm7         F7         Cm7        F7
I've lost all am-bition for worldly ac-claim;
Bb
I just want to be the one you lo-ove.
    Dm7          G7           Dm7          G7
And with your ad-mission that you feel the same,
G7                                      C7
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of, believe me.


[CHORUS]

F                       Am    G#m Gm
I don't want to set the world on  fire,
Bbm C7                                 F  Bbm F
I   just want to start a flame in your hea-a-art.
