Matamoros Banks Chords
Intro: D A D

          D        A              D
For two days the river keeps you down
           A            G            D
Then you rise to the light without a sound         
            D              A               D
Past the playgrounds and empty switching yards
                     A                               G            D
The turtles eat the skin from your eyes, so they lay open to the stars
 
        D                      A                D                  
Your clothes give way to the current and river stone
             A                             D
'Till every trace of who you ever were is gone
          D             A                    D
And the things of the earth they make their claim
           A          G                D
That the things of heaven may do the same

G                             D  
Goodbye, my darling, for your love I give God thanks,

 D                  G
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D                  G
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D             A          D
Meet me on the Matamoros banks
  
                D          A            D
Over rivers of stone and ancient ocean beds
             A       G       D
I walk on twine and tire tread
                     D        A                      D     
My pockets full of dust, my mouth filled with cool stone
                A                      D
The pale moon opens the earth to its bones
    G                          D                    A               D
I long, my darling, for your kiss, for your sweet love I give God thanks
 
       G                        D
The touch of your loving fingertips
 D                  G
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D                  G
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D             A          D                  D    A     D
Meet me on the Matamoros banks    

             D          A               D
Your sweet memory comes on the evenin' wind
             A           G                   D
I sleep and dream of holding you in my arms again
                D           A                 D
The lights of Brownsville, across the river shine
               A                                  D
A shout rings out and into the silty red river I dive

    G                          D                    A                D
I long, my darling, for your kiss, for your sweet love I give God thanks
    G                         D
A touch of your loving fingertips
 D                  G
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D                  G  
Meet me on the Matamoros
 D             A         D
Meet me on the Matamoros banks

About the artist behind Matamoros Banks Chords:

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]
