Tuning: standard

Gee! never saw a good tab/chord transcribtion of this 
classic (the bass-tab s#cks #ss) so I gave it a try 
myself. Since I'm playing this song with my band and
it sounds pretty authentic I think this tab is just about 
right!

Tabbed all riffs which are played over the chords so with 
the lyrics and the chords above them you can easily see 
what riff you have to play. Tabbed the bridge completely.

C#
I'm riding in your car, you turn on the radio. 
               Dm#               C#
You pullin' me close, I just say no. 
              Dm#                         Am#
I say I don't like it, but you know I'm a liar. 
               F#    G#   C#
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire. 


Late at night, you're taking me home. 
                  Dm#                    C#
You say you wanna stay, I say I wanna be alone. 
              Dm#                          Am#
I say I don't love you, but you know I'm a liar. 
               F#    G#   C#
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire. 

bridge:
          F#               C#
You had a hold on me right from the start, 
  G#                       C#
a grip so tight I couldn't tear it apart.
   F#                         C# or C#7 depends on taste     
My nerves all jumpin', actin' like a fool
           D#                       G# 
Well, your kisses they burn, but my heart stays cool. 

              C#                     
Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah.
              Dm#                       C# 
Baby, you can bet, a love they couldn't deny.
             Dm#                      Am# 
My words say split, but my words they lie. 
               F#    G#   C#
'Cause when we kiss, ooh, fire. 

organ solo: same chord progression as verse

outro:

C#
Hot kisses like fire. I like what you're doing now, fire. 
Fill me up with fire, touching me burning me with fire


Last words:
If you don't have someone to play the keys, skip the solo
and repeat the bridge and the last verse. Everybody seems to know
the lyrics of that last verse, so they love it.
