D                     A7        D   A G               A          D
There's a place where I've been told, every street is paved with gold,                   
              Bm               A Em7 A A7       
And it's just across the borderline, 
D                     A7         D   
And when it's time to take your turn,
D                        G    Em
Here's a lesson that you must learn ,
          D                     A7   Bm7  A  D   
You could lose more than you'll ever hope to find,
         Bm        A      D
When you reach the broken promised land,
    G                 D                 
And every dream slips through your hands, 
D                               Bm7             G6   A   G6 A
Then you'll know, that it's too late, to change your mind, 
             Gmaj7    A        G/A  D       G       A       Bm7       G    
Cause you've paid the price to come so far, just to wind up where you are, 
           D          A          A6    D   Em A D A 
And you're still just across the borderline.  


D               G6 A D      G                     A      D
Up and down the Rio Grande, a thousand footprints in the sand, 
                Bm     Gmaj7 A   Em7 A A7                                       
Reveal a secret no one can define,  
D                  A      D
The river flows on like a breath,
   Bm          G6       Em7 
In between our life and death, 
        D                 A7              D   A7 D
Tell me who's the next to cross the borderline. 

Break: 

DA-D-Gmaj7-A-D6-F#m-Bm7-Gmaj7-A7-G6-A-D-A-D-G-Em7-D-A7-A6-D-A6-D


D      A   D         G        A       D         
In the sad darkness, today we have to cross, 
                 Bm7              A7  Em A A7
This river which calls us further away


D                     A6       D                      F#7    G6                                                 
But hope remains when pride is gone, And it keeps you moving on, 
        D    A         A6    D   A7 D
Calling you across the borderline, 
         Bm        A  G   D                                             
When you reach the broken promised land,
G                 D                 A7 D
Every dream slips through your hands, 
                         Bm                  A   Em7 A
And you'll know it's too late to change your mind, 
          Gmaj7   A        D          G                 Bm7       G  
Cause you pay the price to come so far, just to wind up where you are, 
           Em         A7               D   
And you're still just across the borderline,
           G          A7               D    
Now you're still just across the borderline.

Outro: Em A D  A D  And or use Riff 2
