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

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
