HOTTER THAN MOJAVE IN MY HEART (Iris DeMent)
--------------------------------------------
[On "Austin City Limits," she had a capo on the fourth fret.  The
 recording sounds like it's on the third.]
[Play bass runs between D & G if you can, and between G & G between
 sections (the bass goes G-D-E-F#-G).]
[Each chord is one fast measure.]

G  C  G  G   Em  D  G  G
[intro]

          G                     C            G    G
Well I've heard 'em say there's one for everybody
           Em                 D                    G   G
And I just knew somehow that you'd be the one for me
       G                C                 G    G
'Cause making love with you's not just a hobby
               Em                  D              G   G
No, it's the flame that burnt the forest down in me

    Em             Em            D         D
And darling was it day or was it nighttime
          G                G                   D   D             D7  D7
Were them whipporwills a-moaning through the trees, through the trees
  G                     C               G                     Em
I don't remember just what you said but ooh, right from the start you made me
G              D         G     G
Hotter than Mojave in my heart

G  C  G  G   Em  D  G  G
[mandolin solo]

Well baby, I could stay this way forever
Just passing time at ninety-nine degrees
'Cause loving you's my favorite kind of weather
Oh, forever let the flame burn down in me

And I'll not prepare my heart for the change of season
And I'll whip old Winter Wind there if she blows
Well god bless the day that you came along
And you tipped my applecart and you made me
Hotter than Mojave in my heart

G  C  G  G   Em  D  G  G
[guitar solo]
G  C  G  G   Em  D  G  G
[piano solo]

And I'll not prepare my heart for the change of season
And I'll whip old Winter Wind there if she blows
Well god bless the day that you came along
And you tipped my applecart and you made me
G              D         G     Em
Hotter than Mojave in my heart
         G              D         G     G.
Now it's hotter than Mojave in my heart
