Deep Purple - Burn
(Blackmore/Lord/Paice/Coverdale)
From "Burn" (1974)
--------------------------------

Key:  B flat


Intro:  Gm

    Gm
The sky is red, I don't understand;
F/G
past midnight I still see the land.
  Gm
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
 C                                         Gm
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.___
The city's ablaze, the town's on fire;
     F/G
the woman's flames are reachin' higher.
Gm
We were fools, we called her "liar";
Bb  F  C       Gm     Eb   C    Gm
All I hear is "Burn!"_____________

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm;
she said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return!"
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"___
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared;
Still I hear "Burn!"______________

Dm                       Bb
     You know we had no time,
                       Am         Bb
      we could not even try,______
                         Dm      Bb/D    C/D   Gm
      You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand;
past midnight, I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned;
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"
