Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Like many of Kris' early songs, this one almost defies any attempt to arrange it in the 
usual patterns of verses and chorus etc.  It is very basic blues, listen to Kris and play 
along, you will soon get the hang of it. 


        Border Lord   -   Kris Kristofferson


Verse 1
        E               A               E              A            E       A        E    A
        Darkness had us covered when we split from Minnesota in the morning,  in the rain.
        E              A               E                    A          E      A   E   A 
        Black as I was feeling and the street was slick and shiny as a snake.
        E              A            E              A            E     A        E     A
        Each of us was humming to a half forgotten echo hanging over,   in the brain.
        B7                               A                             E     A   E   A
        Tappin’ time and thinking of the time we never had the time to take.

Verse 2
        E             A              E               A               E            A           E     A     
        Losin’ to the rising cost of living high and lovin’ hard and leavin’ ever yesterday behind.
        E              A                   E              A                         
        Learnin’ every bridge you cross is burning down before you’re off, 
            E                A             E      A
        and running like the devil just in time.

Chorus
        D                             A         D                          A
        Breakin’ any ties before they bind you, takin’ any comfort you can find.
        D                                  E
        Runnin’ like you’re runnin’ out of time ~~~~,   
                D                              A          G
        Take it all, (take it easy) ‘till it’s over, understandin’, 
                                                        A                  E    A   E   A
        When you’re headin’ for the border Lord, you’re bound to cross the line.

        E  A  E  A

Verse 3
        E            A           E        A           
        Good lookin’ women every time you stumble, 
        E                A                   E      A
        waitin’ there to catch you where you fall.
        E               A             E                A
        Getting’ to you bad enough to let ‘em keep you backin’ up,
              E                A                  E     A
        ‘till just before your back’s against the wall.

Chorus
        D                             A         D                          A
        Breakin’ any ties before they bind you, takin’ any comfort you can find,
        D                                 E
        runnin’ like you’re runnin’out of time ~~~~.
                D                              A          G
        Take it all, (take it easy) ‘till it’s over, understandin’, 
                                                        A                  E    A   E   A
        when you’re headin’ for the border Lord, you’re bound to cross the line.

        E  A  E  A  E  A  E  A  E  A
                    Fade . . . . .
