Written by Don Cook and Chick Rains
[C]The lights of Laredo [Em]dance on the [C]water
And [F]shine in a young man’s [C]eyes
Who stands on the border and [Em]dreams of [C]para[F]dise[G7]
He’s [C]heard crazy stories of how people live
[F]Over in the promised [D7]land
He [C]heard they eat three [Am]meals a day
[F]Just across the [G7]Rio [C]Grande
He’s got a wife named Maria [Em]and a baby named [C]Rose
And [F]another one to feed on the [C]way
Two willing hands [Em]that couldn’t [C]find work [F]today[G7]
He [C]stares at the river and [Em]curses the future
[F]That he can’t under[D7]stand
He [C]knows the child would [Am]have a chance
[F]Just across the [G7]Rio [C]Grande

A [C]boy can throw a [Am]stone across and [Dm]reach the other [G7]side
It’s [C]just some [G7]muddy [C]water [F]cuttin’ through the [D7]land
But a [C]man can make a [Am]dream come true
[F]Just across the [G7]Rio [C]Grande
The lights of Laredo [Em]dance on the [C]water
And [F]shine in a young man’s [C]eyes
Who stand on the border [Em]and dreams of [C]para[F]dise[G7]
He’s [C]heard crazy stories of how [Am]good life is
[F]Over in the promised [D7]land
And some[C]times it seems like [Am]God must live
[F]Just across the [G7]Rio [C]Grande
repeat #3
Sometimes it seems like [Am]God must live
[F]Just across the [G7]Rio [C]Grande[/chordpress]
