Linda Ronstadt - Across the Border

rate me

written by Bruce Springsteen

© Bruce Springsteen (ASCAP)

Tonight my bag is packed

Tomorrow I'll walk these tracks

That will lead me 'cross the border

Tomorrow my love and I

We'll sleep 'neath auburn skies

Somewhere across the border

We'll leave behind my dear

Pain and sadness we've found here

And we'll drink from the Brazos' muddy waters

Where the sky grows gray and wide

We'll meet on the other side

There across the border

For me you'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

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' blessing and grace

Carry me safely into 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 vine

I know that love and fortune will be mine

Somewhere across the border
