Across the Border  Electric Light Orchestra

[Am]I've been workin' so hard, [Dm]baby,
tryin' to get to [Am]you.
[Dm]I'm gonna be there [G]soon because
In the [C]heat of the day many miles away
when the sun is beating down upon the [F]main street
I'll be [G]waiting here at the station,
I gotta [Am]move [G]down the [F]line.
They'll be [C]dancin' and singin' and doin' their thing
and they'll be rockin' and rollin' until the day is [F]done.
You know I g[G]ot to make the deadline.
I [Ab]gotta get that [Eb]southbound [Bb]train ton[C]ight, [Am]ooh.
If I [Ab]don't get to the [Eb]border [Bb]then I'll [C]write.
[Am] [Dm] [Am] [Dm] [Am] [Dm] [Am] [Dm]  
(Same Pattern)
The Mardi Gras will be blowing strong
and the people dancing all across the city.
I'm leaving here tonight,
I gotta move down the line.
I'm gonna catch a ride on the nine-o-five,
I'm gonna ride the rail until we reach the morning,
maybe three or four hundred miles.
I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh.
If I [Ab]don't get to the [Eb]border [Bb]then I'll [Am]write.
[Am] [Dm] [Am] [G] [C] [F] [G] [Am] [G] [F] [C]  
When the wind is blowing softly
through the streets of a little town and the music's playin
you're waiting somewhere over the horizon.
I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh.
If I don't get to the border then I'll write.
