Across The Bordeline chords

Willy Deville

Key: 

  			                   
E 
  There's a place where I've been told 
A                 B     E    E 
  Every street is paved with gold 
E                C#m              B 
  And it's just across the borderline 
E 
  And when it's time to take your turn 
E                        A        F#m 
  Here's one lesson that you must learn 
          E/B                   B            E 
You could lose more than you'll ever hope to find 



         A/E       B/E A/E E 
When you reach the bro-ken promised land 
A                      E 
 And every dream slips through your hands 
            E                  C#m                  B 
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind 
              A/E      B/E   A/E E 
'Cause you've paid the price to  come so far 
A        B    Cdim C#m        A 
 Just to wind up    where you are 
           E/B         B               E 
And you're still just across the borderline 



E 
  Up and down the Rio Grande 
A                       B  E   E 
  A thousand footprints in the sand 
E                 C#m           B 
  Reveal a secret no one can define 
E 
  The river flows on like a breath 
E                A        F#m 
  In between our life and death 
        E/B               B               E 
Tell me who's the next to cross the borderline 



         A/E       B/E A/E E 
When you reach the bro-ken promised land 
A                      E 
 And every dream slips through your hands 
            E                  C#m                  B 
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind 
              A/E      B/E   A/E E 
'Cause you've paid the price to  come so far 
A        B    Cdim C#m        A 
 Just to wind up    where you are 
           E/B         B               E 
And you're still just across the borderline
