Em                          C
Took my family away from my Carolina home

Em                             C
Had dreams about the West and started to roam

Em                    C 
Six long months on a dust covered trail

Em        
They say heaven's at the end

        C
But so far it's been hell 

           G
And there's fire on the mountain

 D
Lightning in the air

Am
Gold in them hills

          C              
And it's waiting for me 

 Em              C
There (Riff #1 Played Twice)

Em                          C
We were diggin' and siftin' from five to five

Em                           C
Sellin' everything we found just to stay alive

Em                          C
Gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars

Em                 
Sinnin' was the big thing lord 

     C
And Satan was the star

             G
And there's fire on the mountain

 D
Lightning in the air

Am
Gold in them hills 

          C              Em  (With Riff #1) C
And it's waiting for me there

Em                        C
Dance hall girls were the evening treat

Em                   
Empty cartridges and blood lined 

     C
The gutters of the street

Em                          C
Men were shot down for the sake of fun

Em                                  C
Or just to hear the noise of their forty-four guns

             G
And there's fire on the mountain

 D
Lightning in the air

Am
Gold in them hills

          C              Em (with Riff #1)
And it's waiting for me there

Em                C
Now my widow she weeps by my grave

Em    
Tears flow free for her man

C
She couldn't save

Em                             C
All for a useless and no good worthless claim

             G
And there's fire on the mountain

 D
Lightning in the air

Am
Gold in them hills 

          C               G
And it's waiting for me there

 G
Fire on the mountain

 D
Lightning in the air
