Here's yet another from Tom Russell's "Borderland" - Touch of Evil

Intro: F F/C x2

    F                       F                             F   C/F
The night my baby left me I crossed the bridge to Juarez avenue
F         F                               F                                 
Like that movie "Touch of evil" I got the Orson Wells, Marlene Dietrich 
F           F
Where Orson walks in to the whore house and
F                                F  F/C
Marlene says "Man, you look like hell"
And Orson's chewing on a chocolate bar
as the lights go on in the old Blue Star hotel
         F                                                           Em
"Read my future" says old Orson, "down inside the tea leaves of your cup"
And she says "You ain't got no future, Hank,
F               G                F
I believe your future's all used up"

                  F                               F
    Why don't you touch me anymore? Why don't you touch me anymore?
               G                              F                    (C7)
    Why do you run away and hide? You know it hurts me deep inside
               F                                 F
    Why do you close the bedroom door? This is a brutal little war
                 G                                  F           F
    What good is all this fightin' for if you don't touch me anymore?


(Chords like 1st verse, until notice)
     F                           F                      F C/F
They shot "A touch of evil" in a Venice, California colony
F               F
And I grew near those dead canals
                      F                     F
where they filmed the longest pan shot ever made
F                 F                   F                               F     F/F
Now I'm thinking about the movie, the bar I'm in, the bridge, the Rio Grande
         F                             F/C
Now I'm thinking about my baby and the borderline 'tween a woman and a man
       F                                                         Em
I was drunk as Orson Wells the night I crawled backwards out the door
      Dm                    F            G           F
I was screaming "Baby, baby how come you touch me anymore?"


F F/C x3

(Chords like 2nd verse)
        F                         F                                    F  C/F
Oh, someone rolled the credits on twenty years of love turned dark and raw
      F            F                F                          F
Not a technicolor love film, it's a brutal document, it's film noir
         F                   F                  F                        F  F/F
And it's all played out on a borderline and the actors are tragically miscast
                  F                   F/C
Like a Mexican burlesk show where the characters are wearing comic masks
         F                                                           Em
Oh, it's love and love alone I cry to the barmen in this Juarez waterhole
              Dm                 F                 G          F
As we raise a glass to Orson and "A touch of evil" livin' our souls


Outro: F F/C x3 F
