Across the Borderline chords

Hi Paul...here's 'Across the Borderline for you'

ACROSS THE BORDERLINE

(C) - (F) - (G) - (Am)
Capo on 2

Intro: C G F Am
(C) There's a place where I've been told
(F) Every street is paved with (C) gold
And it's (C) just across the border (G) line
(C) And when it's time to take your turn
(F) Here's one lesson that you must learn
You could (C) lose more than you'll (G) ever hope to (C) find

(C) When you (F) reach the broken (G) promised land
(F) And every dream slips (C) through your hands
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your (G) mind
(C) 'Cause you've (F) paid the price to (G) come so far
(F) Just to wind up (C) where you are
And you're still just a (G) cross the border (C) line

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

(C) En la triste os (G) curi (C) dad (In the sad darkness)
hoy tenemos (F) que cruzar (today we have to cross)
(C) este río que nos (G) llama más (C) allá (this river which calls us further away)

(C) But hope remains when (G) pride is (C) gone
And it keeps you (F) moving on
(C) Calling you a (G) cross the border (C) line

When you reach the broken promised land
Every dream slips through your hands
And you'll know it's too late to change your mind
'Cause you pay the price to come so far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across the borderline
Now you're still just across the borderline
And you're still just across the borderline

Re: Across the Borderline chords

:
Here's an alternative, without capo,
and I think some corrections.

: Intro: G D, G D, A D (and repeat)
D G D
There's a place where I've been told
G A D
Every street is paved with gold
Bm A
And it's just across the border line
D G D
And when it's time to take your turn
D G Em
Here's a lesson that you must learn
D A D
You could lose more than you'll ever hope to find

G D
When you reach the broken promised land
G D
And every dream slips through your hands
D Bm A
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind
G D
'Cause you've paid the price to come so far
G D
Just to wind up where you are
D A D
And you're still just across the border line

Just across the border line...

Freddy Fender's version lyrics:

"and you'll steal just to cross the border...line"

NOT

"and you're still just across the border ...line
