Pointer Sisters - Fire Chords

Learn song with the online tabulature player

The chords you will need once the guitar has been tuned down are

When playing the verses you play the D chord then take your pointer finger off of the G

second fret...

(where it sits when playing a D)

... and move it to the Second fret on the A string for two counts then back again... if

listen to the song you will see exactly what i mean.

When playing the Em same thing only you will remove all of your fingers and play the

strings for two counts.

When playing the Bm (BEST PLAYED AS A BARR CHORD) remove your pointer finger again and

the open notes on the E A and D strings for two counts...

(this will all make sense when you play it to the original recording which you can find

youtube)

So here goes ......

You turn on the radio

You're pullin' me close

I just say no

I say I don't like it

But you know I'm a liar

'Cause when we kiss

Ooooh, fire

(REPEAT THE SAME FOR THIS VERSE)

Late at night

You're takin' me home

You say you wanna stay

I say I wanna be alone

I say I don't love you

But you know I'm a liar

'Cause when we kiss

Ooooh, fire

You had a hold on me

Right from the start

A grip so tight

I couldn't tear it apart

My nerves all jumpin'

Actin' like a fool

Well, your kisses they burn

But my heart stays cool

(THIS IS PLAYED THE SAME AS THE FIRST AND SECOND VERSES)

Well, Romeo and Juliet

Samson and Delilah

Baby you can bet

A love they couldn't deny

My words say split

But my words they lie

'Cause when we kiss

Ooooh, fire

(IT GOES INTO A BREAK HERE WHICH IS JUST A FULL VERSE PLAYED AND ENDS

IN THE FOLLOWING WHICH IS JUST PLAYED IN D WITH THE FINGER MOVING TO

THE SECOND FRET ON THE A STRING AND BACK AGAIN)

Ooooh, fire

Kisses like fire

Burn me up with fire

I like what you're doin' now

Fire

Touchin' me

Fire

Touchin' me

Burnin' me

Fire

Take me home

(SO AGAIN TO EXPLAIN THE PATTERN THE SONG FOLLOWS HERE IS A BASIC EXAMPLE OF WHAT A

WILL LOOK LIKE)

D X 1

STOP

( DO THIS FOUR TIMES)

Em X 2

OPEN E A & D STRINGS X2

(DO THIS TWICE)

FAST STRUM THE TOP 3 STRINGS WHILE HOLDING THE G CHORD 8 TIMES

FAST STRUM THE TOP 3 STRINGS WHILE HOLDING THE A CHORD 8 TIMES

Then go back to the D pattern

So if anyone wants to tab this version feel free...

but i thought it might be nice to give the beginner something to learn

that is relatively easy when you know the song lol
