Borderland Chords

   
E
Living in the borderland
           B
I don’t feel like a boy, I don’t feel like a man
           E
In the things I don’t understand
                C#m              B
Things like love, like the law
                         E
Like the law of the jungle
E
Are we all animals
Are we all animals sharpening
Our teeth and claws
B
Stocking up on cannonballs
E
Living like nobody knows
                      B       C#m
They can’t hold on to love
                    B                    E
And live by the law, the law of the jungle

E
Help me Holy Jesus
                A
Won’t you show me how to live
E
I’ve got monsters at my table
           A
I’ve got Bibles bent like shivs
E
Help me Holy Lord
            A
I see the light of heaven’s porch
      E
But so many of us are born here
A
Outside your chain link fence

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/john_mark_mcmillan/borderland_crd.html ]
E                             -A
Living in the borderland
                E
You gotta fend for yourself,
                                A
Let the dogs eat the other man
E                                  -A
Living in the borderland
              B
You gotta take what you get,
                        A
Gotta get what you can

E
Are we all dangerous
Are we all dangerous lost boys shoring up
    B
Pockets full of fairy dust
E
Suffering the wanderlust
                B                  C#m
They all get crushed without love
            B                     E
By the law, the law of the jungle

(Interlude: E-A-B-C#m)
(Return to Chorus, then)

E                           -A
Living in the borderland
                       E
Are you going to fight like a boy,
                     A
Gonna run like a man
E                           -A
Living in the borderland
           E
Gotta take what you get,
                           A
Gotta get what you can
                       C#m
But you can’t hold on
                      B
Can’t hold on to love
                  C#m
You can’t hold on
              B
You can’t hold on and live
             E - A 
By the Law

Outro: E-A-B-C#m repeated, then E-A repeated
