Matamoras Banks - Bruce Springsteen

DRAFT


D		A			D
For two days, a river keeps you down
A					D
And you rise to the light without a sound
                                           A			    D
Past the playgrounds and empty switching yards
                            A							D
The turtles eat the skin from your eyes so they lay open to the stars

Your clothes give way to the current and river stone
Til every trace of who you ever were is gone
And the things of the earth they make their claim
That the things of heaven may do the same

G				D
But my darling, for your love I give God thanks
D		  A
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		  G
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		  A		  D
Meet me on the Matamoras banks

Over rivers of stone and ancient ocean beds
I walk on [twine and tiny tread]
My pockets full of dust, my mouth filled with cool stone
A pale moon opens the earth to its bones

G				D
I long my darlin' for your kiss
                          A			D
For your sweet love, I give God thanks
G				D
A touch of your loving fingertips

Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras banks


Your sweet memory comes on the evening wind
I sleep and dream of holding you in my arms again
The lights of Brownsville across the river shine
A shout rings out, into the silty red river I dive
I long, my darling, for your kiss
The touch of your loving fingertips
Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras banks

Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras
Meet me on the Matamoras banks
