Closer to the Bone  Kris Kristofferson

It's most likely not what he actually plays, but these chords sound about right to me.
Listen to the song to figure out the strumming pattern and how to alternate
between A and Asus2 (which is simply the A with your third finger lifted.)
Intro: A Asus2 A Asus2
First Verse:
Ain't it kinda funn[A]y[Asus2] [A] [Asus2]
Ain't it just the [A]way thou[Asus2]gh[A] [Asus2]
Ain't 'cha gettin' b[E]etter
Runnin' out of ti[A]me[Asus2] [A] [Asus2]
Making pretty m[A]us[Asus2]ic[A] [Asus2]
Closer to your fee[A]li[Asus2]ngs[A] [Asus2]
Working on the re[E]ason
Running on the r[A]hy[Asus2]me[A] [Asus2]
Heading for the hi[D]ghway
( Tab from: )
Rolling like a r[A]iv[Asus2]er[A] [Asus2]
Soaring like an e[E]agle
Skippin' like a s[A]to[Asus2]ne[A] [Asus2]
Comin' from the he[D]artbeat
Nothin' but the tr[A]ut[Asus2]h now[A] [Asus2]
Everything is sw[E]eeter
Closer to the[A] b[Asus2]one[A] [Asus2]
Second Verse:
Ain't afraid of moonlight
Ain't afraid of freedom
Love will make you crazy
But your soul will keep you sane
Singing to the starlight
Over the horizon
Open to the pleasure
Equal to the pain
Heading for the highway
Rolling like a river
Soaring like an eagle
Skippin' like a stone
Comin' from the heartbeat
Nothin' but the truth now
Everything is sweeter
Closer to the bone

A: 002220
Asus2: 002200
E: 022100
D: xx0232
