Just Across the Rio Grande
Written by: Don Cook and Chick Rains
Performed by: Reba McEntire from ďThe Last One to KnowĒ Album
Transcribed by:  Jennifer Jameson  (jenjame@hotmail.com)


	C	      Cm7
The lights of Laredo dance on the water
	F		     C
And shine in a young manís eyes.
      C
He stands on the border
     Cm7      Em   F
And dreams of paradise.
	C		    Cm7
Heís heard crazy stories of how people live
   F	    Cm7      Dm
Over in the promise land.
     C	      Cm7	  F     C
He heard they eat three meals a day
Am7		G	C
Just across the Rio Grande.

Heís got a wife name Maria, a baby named Rose.
And another one to feed on the way.
Two willing hands
That couldnít find work today.

He stares at the river and curses the future
That he canít understand.
He knows the child would have a chance
Just across the Rio Grande.

Chorus

      C    G     C
Itís on - ly a river
	F		C
Thatís not so deep or wide.
   C 	       	   Am7
A boy can throw a stone across
     F		      G
And reach the other side.
      C	       G       C
Itís just some muddy water
   F		      Dm
Cutting through the land,
      C	      Cm7      F	 C
But a man can make a dream come true
(Sometimes it seems like God must live)

Am7		G	C
Just across the Rio Grande.

The lights of Laredo dance on the water
And shine in a young manís eyes.
He stands on the border
And dreams of paradise.

Heís heard crazy stories of how good life is
Over in the promise land.
And sometimes it seems like God must live
Just across the Rio Grande.

Chorus
