Stirring Up The Ashes Written and recorded by Hank Thompson
G E7 C I’m stirring up the ashes of an old flame of mine D7 G D7 Stomping any ember that may still be left behind G C If I find the spark still glowing from the love that we once knew D7 G Then I’ll keep stirring ashes till I’ve forgotten you
D7 G When flames of love are leaping they seem to seek the sky A7 D7 But a wisp of wilting water was your each and every lie G C The flame that once was raging has simmered to the ground D7 G And I’m stirring ashes to be sure you’re not around
E7 C I’m stirring up the ashes from an old love affair D7 G D7 To be certain nothing lingers to be sure that I don’t care G C A coal left unattended may be tempted by the wind D7 G To flame up in a romance that I never want again
D7 G I was just a sacrifice to your lover’s power A7 D7 A lamb led to the slaughter as my hopes reach high and higher G C Something subtle may be buried in those ashes deep and gray D7 G So I’ll keep stirring ashes to be sure you stay away
