Blue Oyster Cult - Burning For You
Transcribed by M_Pony

F 
[intro guitar riff x3] 

G Am F G  Em F Dm G  Am
Aahhhhhh  Aahhhhhhh  Ah!

Am          Em      Dm            F    G
Home in the valley    Home in the city
Am          Em      Dm                  F  G
Home isn’t pretty     Ain’t no home for me

Home in the darkness, Home on the highway
Home isn’t my way, Home I’ll never be

Am-G-Am      G     F  GG
     Burn out the day
Am-G-Am      G     F  GG
     Burn out the night
C                                 F     G-G
I can’t see no reason to put up a fight
C   Cm7        Am         G         Dm       Em-F G-G
I’m living for givin’ the devil his due
Am-G-Am      G            F            G           Am-G-Am G F G
     And I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you
Am-G-Am      G            F            G           F  [riff]
     I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you

G Am F G  Em F Dm G  Am
Aahhhhhh  Aahhhhhhh  Ah!

(chords as above) Am Em Dm F G

Time is the essence, Time is the season
Time ain’t no reason, Got no time to slow
Time everlasting, Time to play b-sides
Time ain’t on my side, Time I’ll never know

Am-G-Am      G     F  GG
     Burn out the day
     Burn out the night
C                                                   F     G-G
I’m not the one to tell you what’s wrong and what’s right
C         Cm7            Am           G               Dm       Em-F G-G
I’ve seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
Am-G-Am    G            F            G           Am-G-Am G F G
And I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you
I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’, I’m burnin’ for you...

F [guitar riff]

[instrumental break (just go nuts on the verse chords)]

I wish you would have taken the time to put chords where they go properly, but otherwise good tab.
