Dolly Parton’s World on Fire

World on Fire ~ downloadable lead sheets

Teresa Young‘s lead sheet for Dolly Parton’s gut-wrenching barnburner World on Fire came about as most of hers do, through a request. This particular adult student wants to bring World on Fire‘s pull-no-punches message into a recital performance that will include a house band, and there was not an existing no-frills lead sheet on the internet to work from. Now there is. You’re welcome. :)

But seriously, thank you, Dolly, for continuing to challenge us all—and even upping the ante—in your own utterly compelling way. Fire, indeed.

The first lead sheet below is in Dolly’s key of A minor. A version in G minor for slightly lower voices is available below too. Both include guitar chord diagrams. Preach, y’all!
