For the Good Times - chords, tab and comments
All the most recorded Kristofferson songs came with his first 1970 album "Kristofferson", re-released 2 years later with the Janis Joplin-hit "Me and Bobby McGee" as the title. The first release was attracted only slight attention, but I came across it in a small record shop in Oslo ... as a cut-off. For a long time then, I had been wondering who's behind that "Kristoffersen"signature following the title of various favorite songs by favorite artists. You see; this was 20 years before the internet :-D. But here was the answer: a black cover with only a shady picture of a man on stage. I bought it unlistened to.
I was a bit disappointed. The man was singing like a goat ... and still is ... besides, the production was poor. But the material was strong. Within half a year, I'd acquired the entire album with the exception of this one ... don't ask me why. But a couple of years ago I realized I'd missed something essential, so here it is.
A Bm E7 A
don't look so sad I know it's over
Bm E7 A
but life goes on and this old world will keep on turning
D E7 A
let's just be glad we had some time to spend together
Bm Bm/A E E7
there's no need to watch the bridges that we're burning
lay your head upon my pillow
hold your warm and tender body close to mine
A7 D Dm
hear the whisper of the raindrops blowing soft against the window
Bm Bm/A E E7
and make believe you love me one more time
for the good times
I could have left you a lot of chords here, like Bm/A - which means you'd better play A with the bass - to express the way the bass lines are floating along the tune. But then it would've been a score rather than tab. You'd better find it out yourself, and by the way, only Bm/A is recommended.
