Jump Into The Fire

Words & Music:

Harry Nilsson


How much fun can you have with just one chord or riff?  Lots.  This long-forgotten hit by Harry Nilsson utilizes only this bass riff (tabbed by TDITZEL), but it can rock if you commit and have fun with it.  Dm is implied.


G|------------------------------| Repeat throughout verses






You can climb a mountain,

You can swim the sea,

You can jump into the fire,

But you'll never be free.


You can shake me up,

Or I can break you down.




We can make each other happy.  [4x]


[Repeat whole song 3x and out]
