D D A D
There's a place where I've been told
G G A D D
Every street is paved with gold
D Bm Bm A A A A
And it's just across the borderline
 
D D A D
When it's time to take your turn
D D G Bm
Here's a lesson that you must learn
D D Bm A D D D
You could lose more than you'll ever find
 
Chorus
D D D A D
When you reach the broken promised land
G G A D D
And every dream slips through your hands
D D Bm Bm A A A
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind
A G A D D G A Bm Bm
Cause you've paid the price to come so far just to wind up where you are
D D A A D D D D
And you're still just across the borderline
 
D D A D
Up and down the Rio Grande
G G A D
A thousand footprints in the sand
D D Bm Bm A A A A
Reveal a secret, no one can define
 
D D A D
The river flows on like a breath
D D G Bm
In between our life and death
D D Bm A D D D
Who's the next to cross the borderline
 
D D A D
En la triste oscuridad (In the sad darkness)
G A D
Hoy tenemos que cruzar (today we have to cross)
D Bm A
Este río que nos llama más allá (this river which calls us further away)
 
D D A D D
Hope remains when pride is gone
D G Bm
And it keeps you moving on
D D Bm A D D D
Calling you across the borderline
 
Chorus
G D D A A D
And you're still just across the borderline
