Burden of Freedom  Kris Kristofferson

Not quite 100%, but it will get you started...
Intro: G A D
I stand on the s[D]tai[Dsus2]rway[D]
My back to the [G]dungeon
The doorway to [A]freedom
So close to my [D]hand
And voices behi[G]nd me
So bitterly da[D]mn me
For seeking s[A]alvation
They dont und[D]ersta[Dsus2]nd[D]
( Tab from: )
Lord, help me to shoulder
The burden of [D]freedom
And give me the courage
To be what I [A]can
And when I am w[D]ounded
By those who co[G]ndemn me
Lord, help me forg[A]ive them
They dont und[D]ersta[Dsus2]nd[D]
Their lonely frustration
Descending to laughter
Erases the footprints
I leave in the sand
But Im free to travel
Where no one can follow
In search of the kingdom
They dont understand
Lord, help me to shoulder
The burden of fr[D]eedom
And give me the courage
To be what I[A] can
And when I have w[D]ounded
The last one who [G]loved me
God help her forg[A]ive me
I dont unders[D]tand.[Dsus2] [D]
Gm? 3 3 4 5 5 3
