Just Across The Rio Grande
Recorded by Reba McEntire
Written by Don Cook and Chick Rains

C Em C
The lights of Laredo dance on the water
F C
And shine in a young man's eyes
Em C F G7
Who stands on the border and dreams of paradise
C
He's heard crazy stories of how people live
F D7
Over in the promised land
C Am
He heard they eat three meals a day
F G7 C
Just across the Rio Grande

Em C
He's got a wife named Maria and a baby named Rose
F C
And another one to feed on the way
Em C F G7
Two willing hands that couldn't find work today
C Em
He stares at the river and curses the future
F D7
That he can't understand
C Am
He knows the child would have a chance
F G7 C
Just across the Rio Grande

G7 C F C G7
It's only a river that’s not so deep and wide
C Am Dm G7
A boy can throw a stone across and reach the other side
C G7 C F D7
It's just some muddy water cuttin' through the land
C Am
But a man can make a dream come true
F G7 C
Just across the Rio Grande

Em C
The lights of Laredo dance on the water
F C
And shine in a young man's eyes
Em C F G7
Who stand on the border and dreams of paradise
C Am
He's heard crazy stories of how good life is
F D7
Over in the promised land
C Am
And sometimes it seems like God must live
F G7 C
Just across the Rio Grande

repeat #3

Am
Sometimes it seems like God must live
F G7 C
Just across the Rio Grande
