Broken Freedom Song  Kris Kristofferson

Intro: G7 C (4x)
[G7]Got a song about a s[C]oldier
[G7]Ridin somewhere on a t[C]rain
[G7]Empty sleeve pinned to his s[C]houlder
[G7]And some pills to ease the [C]pain
[F]Started drinkin in El [C]Paso
[F]He was drunk by San [C]Antone
[F]Tellin strangers who were s[C]leepin
[G7]How he hated goin [D7]home
[C]Just a simple song of f[G7]reedom
[C]He was never fightin [G7]for
[C]No one's listenin 'til you need [G7]'em
[F]Ain't no fun to s[C]ing that song no [Am]more
Got a song about a sister
Waitin lonesome by the phone
For some man who never missed her
Ever since he come and gone
And it's harder for a woman
With a baby on the way
That's the price of bein' human
When you're poor enough to pay
So she listens to the freedom
In the silence at her door
No one's missin 'til you need 'em
Ain't no fun to sing that song no more
Got a song about a savior
Lookin lonesome and afraid
At a city full of strangers
And a cross he never made
And he's sadder than he's wiser
And a longer way from home
And he wonders why his father
Left him bleeding and alone
Just a broken song of freedom
And the closing of a door
No one's missin' til you need 'em
Ain't no fun to sing that song no more
