Across the Wire  Calexico

Tabbed by: piturja
[C]Alberto hits his brother on the back of the[G] head
looks to the north as he starts t[C]o get up
his brother's still sleepy, grumbles "it's not ligh[G]t yet,"
"if you want a new life, what's a few minutes wa[C]it?"
darkness on the [F]road and over the[C] land
into the la[G]ws and out of the ha[C]nds
from those with so[F] much
and no show of [C]heart
you'd think it'd be [G]crazy
to ask for a sm[C]all part[G] [C] [G] [C]
spotted an eagle in the middle of a[G] lake
resting on cactus and feasting on [C]snakes
but the waters recede as the dump closes [G]in
revealing a whole lake of sleeping chil[C]dren
poison in the s[F]tream that flows to the s[C]ea
out on the [G]waves that crash within r[C]each
of those with so [F]much
and so little to [C]fear
you'd think it'd be [G]crazy
to be so far away yet[C] so near
[Dm]some say a ne[F]w day will s[C]hine here
[Dm]over these cat[F]astrophes and hor[E]rors of m[G]isfortune
all across the [C]wire
[C]Alberto y Hermano on the coyote's tr[G]ail
and dodging the border pa[C]trol
out in the wastelands wandering for [G]days
the future looks bleak with no sign of [C]change
darkness in the e[F]ye
and down in the [C]soul
all across the [G]wire
to those in contr[C]ol
holding so m[F]uch
with no show of [C]heart
you think it'd be c[G]razy
to watch it all fal[C]l apart
[F]watch it all [G]fall [C]apart
