The Rio Grande

lyrics

In the distance there's a home
Where the lights shine like diamond stones
Calling me like a beating drum
Across The Rio Grande

Where dreams are only yours to lose
And you can lose every part of you
In a feeling of something true
Across The Rio Grande

Some might say, “It’s a world away”
But my eyes can see the shoreline
So I’m holding on
To the home I long
Praying all it takes is time

There's a girl that waits for me
A little house and an orange tree
Steady work and some mouths to feed
Across The Rio Grande

Some might say, “It’s a world away”
But my eyes can see the shoreline
So I’m holding on
Like a burning sun
Until I reach the borderline

All I need is a lot of luck
A little from the lord above
And the strength to never give up
On The Rio Grande
Give me strength to never give up
On The Rio Grande
