| G | C | G | D | G 
 
 G                      
Tonight my bag is packed 
C              G
Tomorrow I'll walk these tracks 
          D                    G
That will lead me across the border 
 
G                     
Tomorrow my love and I 
 C                   G
Will sleep 'neath auburn skies 
    D                  G
Somewhere across the border 
 
             C
We'll leave behind my dear 
                     G
The pain and sadness we found here 
            C                            D
And we'll drink from the Bravo's muddy waters 
 
                    G            
Where the sky grows grey and wide 
C                  G
We'll meet on the other side 
  D                G
There across the border 
 
G                          
For you I'll build a house 
C               G
High up on a grassy hill 
    D                  G
Somewhere across the border

G                     
Where pain and memory 
C                      G
Pain and memory have been stilled 
  D                G
There across the border

C
And sweet blossoms fills the air 
            G
Pastures of gold and green 
           C              D  
Roll down into cool clear waters

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

(Harmonica Solo) | G | C | G | D | G | G | G | C | G | D | G | G
 
              C
Tonight we'll sing the songs 
                     G
I'll dream of you my corazón 
       C                       D
And tomorrow my heart will be strong

G                 C
And may the saints' blessing and grace 
                    G
Carry me safely into your arms 
 D                 G
There across the border

( Instr. ) | G | C | G | D | G | G | G | C | G | D | G | G

C
For what are we 
               G
Without hope in our hearts 
                   C                         D
That someday we'll drink from God's blessed waters

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

About the artist behind Across The Border:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
