Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

just across the rio grande  Reba McEntire

The ligh[C]ts of Laredo d[Cm7]ance on the water
And shin[F]e in a young man’s ey[C]es.
He sta[C]nds on the border
And d[Cm7]reams of [Em]parad[F]ise.
He’s hea[C]rd crazy stories of [Cm7]how people live
Ove[F]r in the [Cm7]promise l[Dm]and.
He he[C]ard they [Cm7]eat three me[F]als a [C]day
[Am7]Just across the [G]Rio Gran[C]de.
He’s got a wife name Maria, a baby named Rose.
And another one to feed on the way.
Two willing hands
That couldn’t find work today.
He stares at the river and curses the future
That he can’t understand.
He knows the child would have a chance
Just across the Rio Grande.
It’s o[C]n - l[G]y a ri[C]ver
That’s n[F]ot so deep or wi[C]de.
A b[C]oy can throw a s[Am7]tone across
And r[F]each the other si[G]de.
It’s j[C]ust some [G]muddy wa[C]ter
Cut[F]ting through the la[Dm]nd,
But a [C]man can [Cm7]make a dr[F]eam come t[C]rue
(Sometimes it seems like God must live)
[Am7]Just across the [G]Rio Gran[C]de.
The lights of Laredo dance on the water
And shine in a young man’s eyes.
He stands on the border
And dreams of paradise.
He’s heard crazy stories of how good life is
Over in the promise land.
And sometimes it seems like God must live
Just across the Rio Grande.
