    Intro: / C - C/B - / Am7 - Am7/G - / F - G - / C - - - /


                     C (2)                                    F                  C

    There are many kinds of borders that keep people apart

                    C (½)    C/B (½)         Am7 (½)    Am7/G (½)     F                            G

    There are rivers     there are checkpoints,     there are walls around the heart

                  C (2)                                    F                         C

    When I met you down in Mexico, I thought our biggest cross

                 C (½)   C/B (½)   Am7 (½)  Am7/G (½)   F (½)         G (½C

    Would be over  into       Texas,         but it       turned out to be us



                  F                      C                       F                      C

    You can go down to your river, wash white linens on your shore

                    C (½)    C/B (½)  Am7 (½)   Am7/G (½)     F                 G

    You can say that side is   your side,          and the river is your door

                F                     C                   F                           C

    I can stand across on my side, I can call for you to come

                        C (½)     C/B (½)       Am7 (½)  Am7/G (½)   F (½)    G (½)            C

    But we should meet there in the middle,            let our borders all go down


    Repeat Intro


                     C (2)                                     F                  C

    When we talked of who we were, of our families and friends,

      C (½)     C/B (½)    Am7 (½)  Am7/G (½)       F                                  G

    How the world saw us,              where we thought that we might end,

                            C (2)                                            F                  C

    We marked the outline of our borders, showing who we had to be,

                   C (½)         C/B (½)    Am7 (½)  Am7/G (½)                F (½)  G (½)        C

    But we should have formed a river,                       flowed together to the sea.
