Intro:  Main Riff x4
 
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
We all came out to Montreux on the
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
Lake Geneva shoreline
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
To make records with a mobile
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
We didn't have much time
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
Were at the best place around
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
But some stupid with a flare gun
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
Burned the place to the ground
 
Chorus:
/ C5 - - - / Ab5 - - - / G5 - - - / - - - - /
Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
/ C5 - - - / Ab5 - - - /
Smoke on the water
 
Main Riff x2
 
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
They burned down the gambling house
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
It died with an awful sound
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
The funky Claude was running in and out
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
Pulling kids outa the ground
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
When it all was over
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
We had to find another place
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
But Swiss time was running out
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
It seemed that we would lose the race
 
Chorus
 
Main Riff x2
 
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
We ended up at the grand hotel
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
It was empty cold and bare
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
But with the rolling truck stones thing just outside 
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
Making our music there
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
With a few red lights and a few old beds
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
We make a place to sweat
/ G5 - - - / - - - - /
No matter what we get out of this
/ - - F5 - / G5 - - - /
I know we’ll never forget
 
Chorus
 
Main Riff x2

    Identify yourself just for growth.That unique selling position which you have honed all the down to a highly specific advertise and product might not make a really good business company name.For occasion, the list “Joe’s Movies Store” might limit your organization.Someday, you should add movies and ebooks towards your product line.”Joe’s Night-life Outlet” is likely to be a greater name in the first place.So be sure that your company’s name is actually sufficiently extensive enough to help you encompass any direction your corporation may consider.Also, steer clear of trendy artists.Though tie-dye T-shirts could be making the comeback, it will be better to call your T-shirt keep “Al’s T-Shirts” than “Al’s Groovy Sixties T-shirts.”

    Ensure your name is offered.The best place to see is at the State Corporation Commission.Find the actual department or perhaps agency which will handles swap names and instigate a search about the business name you would like to see of your house available.Furthermore, check the net.Do a look on Yahoo or perhaps Google aided by the name one chose and watch what search engine results come upward.
