WALKING THROUGH FIRE (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
--------------------------------------------
[This song is actually in the key of A, then it switches to B; I'm guessing
 that Mary Chapin plays it in G & A with a capo on the second fret.]
[On a single guitar, you can do a pretty good rendition of the descending
 pattern in C(9)-D by playing C(9) as x30010 and then changing to x30000
 right before the D.  For D(9) (in the latter part of the song), play it
 as xx0230, and then xx0220 right before the E.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]

G  G  C(9) D    G  G  C(9) D    G  G  C(9) D    G  G  C(9) D
[intro]

G  G              C(9)          D    G  G              C(9)      D
   When you set a match to your heart, fueling it with bitterness and doubt
G  G                     C(9)    D     G  G           C(9)          D
   That's the place that once it starts, no amount of tears can put out
Em7    Em7              D      D            C         C           D    D
   I know you're scared, but no one's spared when you play with matches
           G               G    C(9)  D
You got me walking through fire
           G               G    C(9)  D
You got me walking through fire

Maybe you've been burned by lovers, maybe you've been scarred by the pain
But baby, I'm not like the others, drawing moths to a flame
Spite is like a spark, crackling in the dark, consuming all it catches
And you got me walking through fire
You got me walking through fire to get to you
Got me walking through fire (walking through fire)
You got me walking through fire (walking through fire)

F          F        G        G      Bb       Bb        C         F
   You can see the toll it's taking, you can feel the faith it's shaking
Cm7        Cm7       F         F         Bb   Bb   D   D
   You can hear the heart it's breaking now

A  A               D(9)          E     A  A            D(9)        E
   Baby, I've been burned by the fever,    I've been scorched by desire
A      A          D(9)       E              A    A        D(9)  E
   But baby, I am not your deceiver or your eloquent liar
F#m      F#m         E           E        D        D        Bm7   E
   Your jealous heart is tearing us apart, turning love to ashes
                A               A    D(9)  E
When you got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire to get to you
Got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire (walking through fire)
You've got me walking through fire (walking through fire)
         G          G      D(9)  E
As the flames shoot higher
           A               A             D(9)   E
You got me walking through fire (through fire),  walking
A  A  D(9) E    A  A  D(9) E    A  A  D(9) E
