Johnny Lobo  Kris Kristofferson

Johnny Lobo - Kris Kristofferson
From the album: "A Moment of Forever"
Standard tuning
D G A D Following the harp..."This is the true story"
[D] [G] [A] [D]  
[D] Once upon a dusty reservation[G]
[A]Somewhere in the land of Sittin' Bull[D]
[D] Johnny Lobo played with fire and [G]dreamed of open spaces[A]
Locked inside a Heaven gone to h[D]ell
[G] All the dreams were gone but not forg[Fm#]otten
Murdered like the holy buffalo[A]
[Fm#] Johnny Lobo knew the rules and [G]grew into a warrior[A]
Fightin' for his people and his s[D]oul

[D]Oh.[G]...[A]..Johnny [D]Lobo
[D]Oh.[G]...[A]..Johnny [D]Lobo
D chord is played by 2 guitars, picking the strings and following the strumming as melody.

May not be accurate, but sounds OK.Same pattern can be followed just strumming
and playing D-Dadd9-D5

[D] Rooted down with lessons that he car[G]ried
[A]Home from Vietnam to Wounded K[D]nee
[D] Johnny Lobo burned the flag he [G]knew had been dishonored[A]
Paid the price for thinkin' he was [D]free
[G] Someone set his house afire,[Fm#] burned it to the ground
[Fm#] With his wife and children locked inside[A]
[Fm#] Later when the bitter tears were [G]falling to the ashes[A]
Somethin' good in Johnny Lobo [D]died
Harp melody...
[D] In a darkened corner of a tavern[G]
[A] Burnin' down old memories ag[D]ain
[D] Johnny Lobo stares into the s[G]moke and dreams of clouds[A]
Runnin' like wild horses with the wind[D]
[G] Holy phoenix rising from the a[Fm#]shes
[Fm#] Into the circle of the [D]sun
[Fm#] Johnny Lobo's warrior heart was [G]burnished in the embers[A]
And the battle's just beg[D]un
outro: D A G
I´ve tried to place the chords most accurate to the precisely moment when singing lyrics.
It means that every single "space" corresponds to the beating and strumming pattern.
So, as an example, when singing the part:
"D G "
Rooted down with lessons that he carried ...
Guitar is strumming the chord right before starting singin´, therefore space.
And, therefore also, no space left when:
"A D"
Somewhere in the land of Sittin' Bull ...
But every ear, brain and personality chooses the sounds differently. So be free to sing the song
as you please. Better enjoy the singin´than get crazy tryin´ mathemathics on a guitar.
