Gordon Lightfoot - Borderstone


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] G

[VERSE 1:]
                             C
The night is as black as the coal dust on the tracks 
          D            C   G
Up to the east, day is dawning 
                        C           Am     D
From time to time I get women on my mind 

I'm a son of a gun


[CHORUS:]
C            G                 A                 D
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
C            G                         D             G
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight


[VERSE 2:]
                           C
The train that I'm on is a hundred boxcars long 
           D                    C   G
So I don't sleep through to the morning 
                                C           Am   D
That's some chilly wind in this gondola I'm in 

I wish I had a glass of beer


[CHORUS:]
C            G                 A                 D
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
C            G                         D             G
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight
C            G                 A                 D
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
C            G                         D             G
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight


                **Key Change - Up 2 Semitones**


[INTERLUDE:] A D E A E


[VERSE 3:]
    A                                  D
The forwarding house let me choose the thing no school can teach you 
     E                  D  A
I confess I've been out-fumbled 
                               D               Bm       E
The sound of the beans boiling through the evergreens
 
Sure do please a hungry man


[CHORUS:]
D            A                 B                 E
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
D            A                         E             A
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight
D            A                 B                 E
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
D            A                         E             A          D
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight


[VERSE 4:]
    A                     D
The sound of the wheels rebounds across the fields 
      E            D  A
I'm a name with no number 
                      D                Bm     E
And so I guess I'd be drifting more or less 

Still it's not meant to be


[CHORUS:]
D            A                 B                 E
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
D            A                         E             A
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight
D            A                 B                 E
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
D            A                         E             A
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight
D            A                 B                 E
Borderstone, Borderstone gonna cross your line tonight 
D            A                         E             A
Borderstone, pretty little town, gonna make my bed tonight
