																				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
 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 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
