Burden of Freedom
K. Kristofferson
Album: Border Lord


INTRO: D  Dsus4

               D                         Em
I stand on the stairway, my back to the dungeon
                A                     D      Dsus4
The doorway to freedom so close to my hand
         Em      A              D
Voices behind me still bitterly damn me
                Em    A                D
For seekin' salvation they don't understand


CHORUS 1:
                G                       D
Lord help me to shoulder the burden of freedom
                G                    A
And give me the courage to be what I can
              D                       Em
And when I am wounded by those who condemn me
                A                           D
Lord help me forgive them, they don't understand


SOLO


Their lonely frustration, descending to laughter
Erases the footprints I leave in the sand
And I'm free to travel where no one can follow
In search of the kingdom they don't understand


CHORUS 2:
Lord help me to shoulder the burden of freedom
And give me the courage to be what I can
And when I have wounded the last one who loved me
God help her forgive me, I don't understand
