   AbAb chord        GbGb chord      AbAb chord
We all came out to Montreux
            GbGb chord      AbAb chord
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
        GbGb chord              AbAb chord
To make records with a mobile
          GbGb chord         AbAb chord
We didn't have much time


AbAb chord     GbGb chord             AbAb chord
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
                 GbGb chord      AbAb chord
Were at the best place around
         GbGb chord             AbAb chord
But some stupid with a flare gun
                 GbGb chord      AbAb chord
Burned the place to the ground


DbDb chord            AA chord         AbAb chord
Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
DbDb chord            AA chord   FF chord AbAb chord BbBb chord  FF chord AbAb chord CC chord-BbBb chord  FF chord AbAb chord BbBb chord  AbAb chord FF chord  -2x-
Smoke on the water


     AbAb chord               GbGb chord        AbAb chord
They burned down the gambling house
                GbGb chord     AbAb chord
It died with an awful sound
                           GbGb chord      AbAb chord
AA chord funky Claude was running in and out
             GbGb chord        AbAb chord
Pulling kids outa the ground
        GbGb chord       AbAb chord
When it all was over
                GbGb chord      AbAb chord
We had to find another place
                   GbGb chord       AbAb chord
But Swiss time was running out
                        GbGb chord        AbAb chord
It seemed that we would lose the race


DbDb chord            AA chord         AbAb chord
Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
DbDb chord            AA chord   FF chord AbAb chord BbBb chord  FF chord AbAb chord CC chord-BbBb chord  FF chord AbAb chord BbBb chord  AbAb chord FF chord  -2x-

   AbAb chord               GbGb chord       AbAb chord
We ended up at the Grand Hotel
             GbGb chord        AbAb chord
It was empty cold and bare
                                        GbGb chord       AbAb chord
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
           GbGb chord     AbAb chord
Making our music there
       GbGb chord       AbAb chord         GbGb chord       AbAb chord
With a few red lights, a few old beds
          GbGb chord        AbAb chord
We made a place to sweat
                  GbGb chord          AbAb chord
No matter what we get out of this
                     GbGb chord        AbAb chord
I know, I know we'll never forget


DbDb chord            AA chord         AbAb chord
