Blue Oyster Cult - Burning For You
Transcribed by M_Pony

[Intro]

F 

(intro guitar riff x3)


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

Am-G-Am      G     F  G G
     Burn out the day
Am-G-Am      G     F   G G
     Burn out the night
C                                 F     G-G
I can’t see no reason to put up a fight
C   C/B        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


[Bridge]

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


[Verse 2]

(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


[Chorus]

Am-G-Am      G     F  G G
     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         C/B            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...

Nice. But that Cm7 I believe should be a G/B instead
