ACROSS THE BORDER Lyrics

Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Album: Ghost Of Tom Joad

Tonight my bags are packed,
Tomorrow I'll walk these tracks
That'LL 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
And we'll drink from Bravo's muddy waters
Where the sky grows grey and wide
We'll meet on the other side,
There across the border.
For you I'll build a house
High upon a grassy hill
Somewhere across the border.
Where 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 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
And I'll dream of you, my corazon
And tomorrow my heart will be strong;
And may the saints' blessings and grace
Carry me safely to your arms
There across the border.
For what are we
Without hope in our hearts
That someday we'll drink from God's blessed waters
And eat the fruit from the vines,
I know love and fortune will be mine
Somewhere across the border
