[Verse 1]

A                    G
Brave men fall with a battle cry
D                                       
Tears fill the eyes of their loved ones 
                     A
and their brothers in arms
      G                D
So it went, for Joseph Warren

  A                              G
It should have been different, it could 
have been easy
   D                                
His rank could have saved him, but a 
                    A
country unborn needs bravery
       G            D
And it spread like wildfire


[Chorus]

A   G   D
   Wildfire
A   G   D
   Wildfire


[Verse 2]

          A                G
From the ashes grew sweet liberty
         D
Like the seeds of the pines when the 
forest burns
      A        G             D
They open up, grow and burn again

   A                              G
It should have been different, it could 
have been easy
    D                                  
But too much money rolled in to ever end
 A
slavery
            G                D
The cry for war spread like wildfire


[Chorus]

A   G   D
   Wildfire
A   G   D
   Wildfire


[Instrumental]

A   G   D (x2)


[Verse 3]

A               G
Civil war came, civil war went
D
Brother fought brother, the south was 
spent
        A               G             
But its true demise was hatred, passed 
     D
down through the years

   A                              G
It should have been different, it could 
have been easy
    D                                  
But pride has a way of holding too firm 
    A
to history
        G           D
And it burns like wildfire


[Chorus]

A   G   D
   Wildfire
A   G   D
   Wildfire


[Instrumental]

A   G   D 
(x2)


[Verse 4]

A               G
  I was born a southern son
     D
In a small southern town where the 
rebels run wild
A                                G    
They beat their chest and they swear:
               D
we're gonna rise again

   A                              G
It should have been different, it could 
have been easy
   D                              
The day that old Warren died, hate 
                       A
should have gone with it
            G                    D
But here we are, caught in the wildfire


[Chorus]

A   G   D
   Wildfire
A   G   D
   Wildfire
