Mandolin Orange - Missouri Borderlands

Chords and Lyrics Mandolin Orange - Missouri Borderlands


Artist : Mandolin Orange
Song : Missouri Borderlands

Intro : G C Am F
C F Am G

C Am F C
I am far away from home With neither faaaaaaamily nor friends
C F Am G C
I never meant to stay so long In the Missouri borderlands

C Am F C
Three years ago I held a job Saw the woooooorld from my pony sway
C F Am G C
Riding drag on a dusty mount I knew I'd worked when I drew my pay

C Am F C
But times got hard, Christ times got mean And I fell iiiiiiiin with desperate men
C F Am G C
And one night the worst of them Laid out what was an awful plan

Break : G C Am F
C F Am G

C Am F C
I did not like such wicked talk Of Murder aaaaaaaand bold robbery
C F Am G C
I told those men I would walk And they all aimed their guns at me


C Am F C
Their prisoner I helped rob a bank And much gooooold we did obtain
C F Am G C
They shot a boy just for the sport I stood and watched his young life wane

C Am F C
Such dreadful sounds I'd never heard His mother’s waailing filled the room
C F Am G C
She looked at me and screamed these words Devil take you to your doom

Break : G C Am F
C F Am G

C Am F C
I turned to face that murderous crew Shot ‘em dead. I killed all four
C F Am G C
And the only thing I rue Had not thought of that before

C Am F C
The posse found me outside of town As I was kneeeling there to pray
C F Am G C
From my gallows high I to lay down In a dark Missouri grave

C Am F C
Please hide the rope stains around my neck When my mooother sees me dead
C F Am G C
Please don’t let my brothers take The faithful path I chose to tread
C Am F C
Cause im far away from home With neither faaaaamily nor friends
C F Am G C
I never meant to stay so long In the Missouri borderlands
C F Am G C
And now I'll spend eternity In the Missouri borderlands
