When I Get To The Border
by Richard Thompson

C
Greedy people take what's mine
F                          (G)
I can leave them all behind
C           C/B     Am
And they can never cross that line
     F            G
When I get to the border
C
Saw-bones standin' at the door
F                             (G)optional
Waiting till I hit the floor
C        C/B      Am
He won't find me anymore
F               G
When I get to the border


CHORUS:
G
Monday morning, Monday morning
Closing in on me
    G     F#/G             Em  
I'm packin' up and I'm a-runnin' away
            C              D
To where nobody thinks of me
---------------------------------
C
If you see a box of pine
F                           G
With a name that looks like mine
C        C/B        Am
Say I drowned in a barrel of wine
F                 G
When I got to the border
F                 G
When I got to the border

CHORUS
-------------------------
C
A one way ticket's in my hand
F                         G
Headed for the chosen land
C           C/B     Am
My troubles will all turn to sand
F                   G
When I get to the border
C
A soft girl with yellow hair
F
Waiting in that rockin' chair
C           C/B     Am
And if I'm weary I won't care
F                G
When I get to the border

CHORUS
----------------------------------------
C
A dusty road that smells so sweet
F
Paved with gold beneath my feet
C           C/B       Am
And I'll be dancing down the street
F                  G
When I get to the border
F                 G
When I get to the border

CHORUS
