capo 1st fret
[C] There's a place where I've been told
[F] Every street is [G]paved [C]with [C]gold
[C] And it's just a[Am]cross the border[G]line
[C] And when it's time to take your turn
[C] Here's one lesson that [F]you must [Dm]learn
You could [C(/G)]lose more than you'll [G]ever hope to [C]find
When you [F/C]reach the [G/C]bro-[F/C]ken [C]promised land
[F] And every dream slips [C]through your hands
Then you'll [C]know that it's too [Am]late to change your [G]mind
'Cause you've [F/C]paid the [G/C]price [F/C]to [C]come so far
[F] Just to [G]wind [G#dim]up [Am]where you [F]are
And you're [C(/G)]still just a[G]cross the border[C]line
[C] Up and down the Rio Grande
[F] A thousand footprints [G]in [C]the [C]sand
[C] Reveal a secret [Am]no one can de[G]fine
[C] The river flows on like a breath
[C] In between our [F]life and [Dm]death
Tell me [C(/G)]who's the next to [G]cross the border[C]line
When you [F/C]reach the [G/C]bro-[F/C]ken [C]promised land
[F] And every dream slips [C]through your hands
Then you'll [C]know that it's too [Am]late to change your [G]mind
'Cause you've [F/C]paid the [G/C]price [F/C]to [C]come so far
[F] Just to [G]wind [G#dim]up [Am]where you [F]are
And you're [C(/G)]still just a[G]cross the border[C]line
