Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Matamoros Banks  Bruce Springsteen

For two da[D]ys the ri[A]ver keeps you d[D]own
Then you ri[A]se to the lig[G]ht without a [D]sound
Past the pla[D]ygrounds and em[A]pty switching ya[D]rds
The turtles eat the s[A]kin from your eyes, so they lay [G]open to the s[D]tars
Your clo[D]thes give way to the cu[A]rrent and river s[D]tone
'Till every t[A]race of who you ever were is g[D]one
And the th[D]ings of the ea[A]rth they make their c[D]laim
That the th[A]ings of hea[G]ven may do the sa[D]me

[G]Goodbye, my darling, for your [D]love I give God thanks,

M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the [A]Matamoros b[D]anks
Over rivers of s[D]tone and an[A]cient ocean b[D]eds
I walk on twi[A]ne and t[G]ire trea[D]d
My pockets full of du[D]st, my mo[A]uth filled with cool st[D]one
The pale moon op[A]ens the earth to its bo[D]nes
I lo[G]ng, my darling, for your ki[D]ss, for your sweet lo[A]ve I give God th[D]anks
The tou[G]ch of your loving fingert[D]ips
M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the [A]Matamoros b[D]anks               [D]     [A]      [D]
Your sweet me[D]mory comes [A]on the evenin' w[D]ind
I sleep and d[A]ream of hold[G]ing you in my arms a[D]gain
The lights of Br[D]ownsville, a[A]cross the river sh[D]ine
A shout rings o[A]ut and into the silty red river I d[D]ive
I lo[G]ng, my darling, for your ki[D]ss, for your sweet lo[A]ve I give God tha[D]nks
A to[G]uch of your loving fingert[D]ips
M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the Matam[G]oros
M[D]eet me on the [A]Matamoros [D]banks
