                I saw the tab for this song and i thought that my intro was better. 
I know that Steve will play this song in G , as he always does, so slap a capo on the old 2nd fret.

Intro:

--3-----------------------------------------3--------------
--3------------------------------(3)-(3)(3)-3--------------
--0-------------------------------2---2--2--0-2------------
--0--0-0h2p0----------------------0---0--0--0-0---------0h2
--2----------0h2--2h3-3p2-0-2-(p)-0---0--0--2-0-0h2p0------
--3--------------------------------------------------3-----

Fill 1:

--0-0-2------into G*



[G] Me and old Bill there we both come from Georgia
Met Hank down in [D] New Mexico [G] (Fill 1)
We're [G] bound for Durango to join Pancho Villa
We hear that he's [D] paying in [G] gold (Fill 1)

I guess a man's got to do what he's best at
Ain't found nothing better so far
Been called mercenaries and men with no country
Just soldiers in search of a war

CHORUS

We're [C] bound for the border
We're [G] soldiers of fortune
We'll [D] fight for no country
But we'll [G] die for good pay
[C] Under the flag of the [G] greenback dollar
Or the peso down [D] Mexico [G] way (Fill 2)

When this way is over, I might go back to Georgia
And settle down quiet somewhere
I'll most likely pack up and head south for Chile
Hear tell there's some trouble down there

*
If you've got another guitar playing open using the chords A D E, then play this fill as:

--------
--------
--------
--------
--------
--0-2-4-into A

But if youre capoed at 2 you cant play the open E so just play F# twice, as in Fill 2

Thanks very much.
