                ACROSS THE BORDER
  By Bruce Springsteen
  From The Ghost of Tom Joad Album

  This is one of my favorite songs from the new album. To play along
  with the album, you'll have to capo at the first fret.  Bruce hammers
  on and pulls of the second string third fret (D) while playing the
  A to create a little movement.


Intro: A (strum "backwards," from high to low the first time)

Tonight my bag is packed
Tomorrow I'll walk these tracks
          E                  A
That will lead me across the border.

Tomorrow my love and I
Will sleep 'neath auburn skies
Somewhere across the border.

We'll leave behind my dear
The pain and sadness we found here
          A                        D
And we'll drink from Bravo's muddy water.

Where the sky grows gray and wide
We'll meet on the other side
There across the border.

=46or you I'll build a house
High upon a grassy hill
There across the border.

Where and pain and memory
Pain and memory have been stilled
There across the border.

And sweet blossoms fill the air
Pastures of gold and green
Roll down into the cool clear waters.

And in your arms 'neath open skies
I'll kiss the sorrow from your eyes
There across the border.

Tonight we'll sing the songs
I'll dream of you, my coraz=F3n
And tomorrow my heart will be strong.

And may the saints' blessings and grace
Carry me safely into your arms
There across the border.

=46or what are we
Without hope in our hearts
That someday we'll drink from God's blessed waters.

And eat the fruit from the vine
I know love and fortune will be mine
Somewhere across the border.
