The Tallest Man On Earth - Burden Of Tomorrow chords

EDITED FROM LAST VERSION


I totally agree that this is the best song on the album.  Maybe one day someone will
post it with drop tuning, but this is standard tuning.

(To make fingerwork easier: put capo on second fret to make it an F# chord but with an E
fingering.  Get it?  In which case you'd be fingering E, A, E, A B, c#m, A, B... for
the beginning of the verse)

**Note:  When playing the final chord of the chorus, I believe the artist's tuning
creates a B chord with a Major 7th added, or Major B7 chord (not a dominant 7, which instead
would add a minor 7th).  At this moment, either a B, a Major B7, or an a# minor chord 
sound pretty good to me.






(( Intro ))

F#, B, F# F#
F#, B
F# B F# B 
F B C# C#



   F#           B                       F#
Oh I was sent to find the lonesome place
               B              C#
Where I was lost but left to trace
          d#m           B       C#
By carving riddles on the lonesome vine
   F#           B                    F#
Oh but rumor has it that I wasn't born
                B              C#
I just walked in one frosty morn
         d#m           B       C#
Into the vision of some vacant mind


   B    C#  F#  B   **(optional: add 7, I think it's heard in Matsson's tuning.)
Oh once I held a pony by its flagging mane
       B          C#          F#        B
And once I called the shadow in the turning game
      d#m    C#     B            C#
But   I will     fight this stranger that you should fear
      d#m   C#    B            F#
So   I won't    be a   burden of tomorrow dear


(( Interlude or something. ))
F#, B, F#, B


   F#           B                F#
Aww Xavier's on the border of the sun
          B               C#
Swings on the chambers of your guns
             d#m             B           C#
And tries to shoot the chord and light the path
   F#           B            F#
Aww but hell I'm just a blind man on the plains
          B           C#
I drink my water when it rains
        d#m             B        C#
And live by chance among the lightning strikes


    B      C#      F#    B 
Oh once I held a glacier to an open flame
       B          C#          F#      B
And once I felt like wildcat in the fallen game
      d#m    C#     B         C#
But I will fight this stranger that you should fear
      d#m    C#     B         F#
So I won't be a burden of tomorrow dear

F#, B, F# F#
F#, B


   B      C#      F#    B 
Oh the singer's on the edge to feed the canyon's mouth
   B      C#      F#    d#m
They will go on forever til they sing you out of time
     d#m    C#     B         C#
But I will fight this stranger that you should fear
     d#m    C#     B         F#
So I won't be a burden of tomorrow dear
