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.

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# BAnd 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# BAnd 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

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
