Matamoros Banks (Springsteen Bruce)

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 sone 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 D G Meet me on the Matameet 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 D G Meet me on the Matamoros D G Meet me on the Matamoros D A D Meet me on the Matamoros banks
