6  6 6 -6 -5  6     5    
Love is a burning thing 
 5  5   5   -5  -4    4
And it makes a fiery ring
  6   6   -6  -5  6  
Bound by wild desire 
5  5   5 5  5  -5  -4  4
I fell into a ring of fire

6  -7  -8-8-8  7  7    7   7  -6 6
I fell into a burning ring of fire
6  6    6     -7    -8
I went down, down, down
-8  -8    7     7   -6  6
And the flames went higher
 5  -4   4      5      6 
And it burns, burns, burns
 5   -5  -4 5 6    5   -5  -4  4       
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

6  -7  -8-8-8  7  7    7   7  -6 6            
I fell into a burning ring of fire
6  6    6     -7    -8
I went down, down, down
-8  -8    7     7   -6  6
And the flames went higher
 5  -4   4      5      6           
And it burns, burns, burns
 5   -5  -4 5 6    5   -5  -4  4
The ring of fire, the ring of fire
          
 6    6   6   -6  -5   6     
The taste of love is sweet 
 5    5     5   -5-4  4
When hearts like ours meet
6  6    6   6   -6 -5   6    
I fell for you like a child 
5    5   5   -5  -4    4
Oh, but the fire went wild
