Across the Borderline  Willy DeVille

This is a Ry Cooder song but this is how Willy does it (DeVille that is, not Nelson)
Across The Borderline - Willy DeVille
Intro: E B7 E E
[E]There's a place so [B7]I've been [E]told, where every street is [D]paved with g[A]old
And it's [E]just across the border l[B7]ine
And [E]when it's time to [B7]take your [E]turn there's a lesson that [D]you must [A]learn
You could [E]lose more than you [B7]ever thought you'[E]d find
And when [A]you reach the broken [E]promised land
[A]And all your dream slips [E]through your hands
And you [E]know it's too late to change your [B7]mind
Because you've [A]paid the price to [E]come so far [A]just to wind up w[E]here you are
And you're [E]still just acr[B7]oss the border li[E]ne
Instrumental as per first verse
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/willy_deville/across_the_borderline_crd.html )
And when [A]you reach the broken [E]promised land
[A]And all your dream slips [E]through your hands
And you [E]know it's too late to change your [B7]mind
Because you've [A]paid the price to [E]come so far [A]just to wind up w[E]here you are
And you're [E]still just ac[B7]ross the border l[E]ine
[E]Up and down the [B7]Rio [E]Grande a thousand footprints [D]in the [A]sand
[E]Reveal a secret no one can de[B7]fine
[E]The river flows on [B7]like a [E]breath in between are [D]life and d[A]eath
Tell me [E]who's the next to [B7]cross the borderl[E]ine
And when you [A]reach the broken [E]promised land
[A]And all your dream slips [E]through your hands
Then you'll [E]know it's too late to change your [B7]mind
Because you've [A]paid the price to [E]come so far [A]just to wind up w[E]here you are
And you're [E]still just ac[B7]ross the border l[E]ine
And you're [E]still just ac[B7]ross the border l[E]ine
Tell me [E]who's next to [B7]cross the border [E]line
