Where The Dream Begins
(Tom Russell)
from Tom Russellís ďBorderlandĒ
tabbed by Mike Berry

Iíve written this as capoed at the 2nd fret. On the CD, it sounds like much of 
the guitar work is higher up the neck. If you want to achieve the nice high 
notes being finger-picked then you can capo at the 7th fret and make the 
appropriate chord changes, which are:

capo 2 capo 7
(C)     (G)
(F)     (C)
(G)     (D)
(Bb)    (F)
(Am)    (Em)
(Dm)    (Am)

Capo 2

(C) (F) (C) (G) (C)

What happened to the kid in the (F)baseball (C)cap?
Well heís trying to get home but I (G)think he lost the (C)map
What happened to the kid with the (F)braces on his (C)teeth?
He had an autographed picture of Mu(G)hammad (C)Ali
Heís just a (F)wise-assed, buck-toothed, (Bb)near-sighted fool (F) 
Always (C)staring at the girls in the (G)swimming (C)pool
(F)Thirty years later and heís (Bb)staring again (F)
Heís (C)searching for the place where the (G)dreams be(C)gin
Searching for the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins

Then he bought a bunch of records and he (F)heard a man (C)sing
He said if I could write a song I be(G)lieve Iíd be a (C)king
But it took him twenty years un(F)til he got the (C)nerve
Heís got boxes full of papers and (G)papers full of (C)words
And the (F)words fly away like (Bb)swallows on the (F)wind
But they (C)never flew back to the (G)nest a(C)gain
Never took him to the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins


Then he finally got married and he (F)had two little (C)girls
But he didnít see Ďem much cause he (G)had to see the (C)world
And the lie that he told Ďem is Iím (F)like most (C)men
Itís always down the road that the (G)dream be(C)gins
And the (F)girls grew up to be (Bb)pretty and wise (F)
They said ďyou (C)could have seen the dream by (G)looking in our (C)eyes
(F)You were always living in the (Bb)world of pretend (F)
You kept (C)running away from (F)where the dream (C)begins
Running a(Am)way from where the dream be(Dm)gins" (C)

Now heís living with a woman out on (F)Borderland (C)Road
But her loveís turned bitter, and her (G)eyes turned (C)cold
She said we came to the desert, let the (F)sickness (C)mend
But Hell ainít the place where the (G)dreams be(C)gin
(F)Look out boys Iím (Bb)gaining on you (F)
Heís old (C)Blind Joe Death in his (G)alligator (C)shoes
Heís got a (F)pocket full of pills and a (Bb)pint of sloe gin (F)
Heís gonna (C)show you to the place where the (G)dream be(C)gins
Follow him (Am)down where the dream be(Dm)gins


At the end of the road there ainít (F)nothing but (C)fear
Just a big old room with a (G)big old (C)mirror
And the man in the mirror his (F)hairís turning (C)gray
And his hands begin to shake in a (G)funny kind of (C)way 
Heís knows (F)everything you bring for to (Bb)save you soul (F)
(C)Everything denied will con(G)demn you to the (C)hole
With his (F)hand on his heart he (Bb)picks up his pen (F)
He goes (C)searching for the place where the (G)dream be(C)gins
Looking for the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins (C)

What happened to the kid in the (F)baseball (C)cap?
Heís trying to get home but I (G)think heís lost the (C)map.
