Subject: Chord Req: Chords for Archie Fisher's 'Borderlands'
From: Darren Raleigh
Date: 04 Nov 07 - 03:12 PM

Hi Folks!

Has anyone a set of chords worked out for Archie Fisher's "Borderlands?" Archie? Are you online? I love the song - it fits my voice and I'd like to start arranging it for the harp. It would sure save me a lot of time if I already knew a set of chords - any key will do. I can transpose it to a key that I can sing in.

Would anyone be willing to share the chords?

Thanks,
Darren

In the hope others can help, here's my attempt at first section:

Key Bb Gtr capo 3 Intro Gmaj7 to C with added licks x2

G                                              Gmaj7
From the moor...the meadows/To ...city....shadows
G                                                Am
Where I wander             old and lonely
               C          D7
Comes a call I understand
C
The clear..enthralling
Bm
Its calling ...ever calling
Am                   D/F''       C/G               G
Tis the spirit....open.......dear old borderland

I do, Darren.

Maybe    C to Am7 to Em to Bm for that sequence. What do yo think?

I don't know. I'd guess that it's that or something close to it. I'm on duty right now, but I'll certainly try it as soon as I get to the harp!

Thanks!

I have just uploaded my arrangement of Archie Fisher's Borderlands using chords found using the Riff Station site with slight modifications:

Borderlands (Including lyrics and chords)

I also corrected the lyrics that I had found on another site.

Borderlands    Words Roger Quin, Music Archie Fisher

Capo 3rd fret for the original song

(G)   (Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C) (G)   (Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C)
From the (G)moorlands and the meadows to this (Gj7)city of the (G)shadows,
Where I (G5)wander old and (G6)lone(G5)ly, comes a (Am)call I under(D)stand.
In (C)clear soft notes en(Am)thralling, it is (Bm)calling, ever (Em)calling,
'Tis the (Am)spirit of the (D)open from the (C)dear old (D/F#)border(G)lands. (G5)(G)

For this (C)grim huge city daunts me, its (G5)wail of sorrow (G6)haunts (G5)me,
A nameless figure (C)tossed (Cadd9)a(C)midst the (Am)human surf that (D)beats,
For(C)ever and for(Am)ever, in a (Bm)frenzy of en(Em)deavor
All a(Am)long the cruel (D)barriers of its (C)never (D/F#)ending (G)streets.
(Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C) (G)   (Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C)

But I'll (G)leave it in the morning, slip a(Gj7)way without a (G)warning,
Save a (G5)handclasp from the (G6)friend (G5)that knows the (Am)call that leads me (D)on.
In the (C)city's clang and (Am)clatter one (Bm)old man the less won't (Em)matter,
And (Am)no one here will (D)say me nay or (C)care that (D/F#)I am (G)gone. (G5)(G)

By (C)Caddonfoot I'll linger, it has (G5)charms to stay (G6)the (G5)singer,
And from the bridge a (C)pain(Cadd9)ter's (C)dream of (Am)beauty there I'll (D)see.
But I'll (C)leave it all be(Am)hind me when the (Bm)purple evening (Em)shadows find me,
Past the (Am)vines of (D)Clovenfords to (C)haunted (D/F#)Torwood(G)lee.
(Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C) (G)   (Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C)

Fair (G)Dryborough and Melrose touched (Gj7)by the wizard's (G)spell arose,
And (G5)Bemerside and (G6)Leader(G5)foot and (Am)Elwyn's fairy (D)dene,
With the (C)Tweed serenely (Am)gliding, clearly (Bm)seen and shyly (Em)hiding,
Where (Am)eildons raise their (D)triple crest to (C)sentinel (D/F#)the (G)scene. (G5)(G)

But a(C)las, the dream is over, I a(G5)wake now to dis(G6)co(G5)ver
The city's rush and the (C)bust(Cadd9)ling (C)crowds and the (Am)din on every (D)hand.
But my (C)ear a-softly (Am)falling, I can (Bm)hear the curlews (Em)calling,
And I (Am)know that soon I'll (D)see them in the (C)dear old (D/F#)border(G)land.
(Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C) (G)   (Gj7)(G) (C)    (Cadd9)(C)

This is Archie Fisher´s song, dumbed down a bit.
Some of these chords are ‘transition chords’ and simply show which notes to highlight.
