Matamoras Banks - Bruce Springsteen

Tabbed from DVD – CAPO 2 I think. Dropped D.

D		       A			  D
For two days, the 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

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

G				    D
Bye 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

				   A			   D
Over rivers of stone and ancient ocean beds
		   A			A
I walk on [twine and tiny tread]
						A			    D
My pockets full of dust, my mouth filled with cool stone
		A				    D
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
D		    A
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		    G
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		    A		  D
Meet me on the Matamoras banks


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

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
D		    A
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		    G
Meet me on the Matamoras
D		    A		  D
Meet me on the Matamoras banks
