Smoke on the Water – Lyrics with Chords

Intro

E – Gm – A – E – G – B – A – E Gm A Gm E (6x)

We (Gm) all came (F) out to (Gm)Montreux
On the Lake (F) Geneva (Gm) shoreline
To make (F) records with a (Gm) mobile
We didn’t (F) have much (Gm) time

(Gm) Frank (F) Zappa and the (Gm) Mothers
Were at the best (F) place a (Gm) round
But some (F) stupid with a (Gm) flare gun
Burned the place (F) to the (Gm) ground

(C) Smoke on the (A♭) water, and (Gm) fire in the sky
C A♭ E G A E G B-A E G A G E 2x
Smoke on the water

They (Gm) burned down the (F) gambling (Gm) house
It died with an (F) awful (Gm) sound
(A) funky Claude was running (F) in and (Gm) out
Pulling kids (F) outa the (Gm) ground
When it (F) all was (Gm)over
We had to find a (F) nother (Gm) place
But Swiss time was (F) running (Gm) out
It seemed that we would (F) lose the (Gm) race

(C) Smoke on the (A♭) water, and (G) fire in the sky
C A♭ E G A E G B-A E G A G E 2x
Smoke on the water

Solo
E G A E G B-A E G A G E 2x

We (Gm) ended up at the (F) Grand Ho (Gm) tel
It was empty (F) cold and (Gm) bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing (F) just out (Gm) side
Making our (F) music (G) there
With a (F) few red (Gm) lights, a (F) few old (Gm) beds
We made a (F) place to (Gm) sweat
No matter what we (F) get out of (Gm) this
I know, I know we’ll (F) never for (Gm) get

CSmoke on the (A♭) water, and (Gm) fire in the sky
C A♭ E G A E G B-A E G A G E 6x
Smoke on the water
