[Intro] G  C/G  (4x)

     C                 Am7                      G
The sun is sinking and I'm still dragging this bag of bones
        C                      Am7                    G
Like a homesick beggar with a rockstar swagger and a heart of stone

    Em
My feet are on the riverbed
   C/G
My hands are far from innocent
     Dadd9/A      D7
Have mercy on my soul

[chorus]
G         C/G            G      Dadd9/A
Where did I go wrong? I lost my head.
C/G                 Em         Dadd9/A   C/G  (keep playing the chord for 4 bars)
I want to dance on fire and be born     again
                                           G  
I can hear the voice that's waking up the dead


[intro] G  C/G  (2x)


     C                           Am7                        G
Well everything changes and the colors start fading and the stars go dim
         C                             Am7                         G
And the clock keeps ticking while the rattlesnake's shaking as it sheds its skin

           Em 
Kill your heart and never take a chance
        C/G
Lock it up inside a picket fence
      Dadd9/A        D7
The illusions of control


[chorus]
G         C/G            G      Dadd9/A
Where did I go wrong? I lost my head.
C/G                 Em         Dadd9/A   C/G  (keep playing the chord for 4 bars)
I want to dance on fire and be born     again
                                           G  
I can hear the voice that's waking up the dead


[interlude] Em  G  Em  G  Em  C/G (do a little whooing over it)


[chorus]
G         C/G            G      Dadd9/A
Where did I go wrong? I lost my head.
C/G                 Em         Dadd9/A   C/G
I want to dance on fire and be born     again
G         C/G            G      Dadd9/A
Where did I go wrong? I lost my head.
C/G                 Em         Dadd9/A   C/G  (keep playing the chord for 4 bars)
I want to dance on fire and be born     again
                                           G  
I can hear the voice that's waking up the dead
