Intro: C F C

          C        F              C
For two days the river keeps you down
           F            F            C
Then you rise to the light without a sound         
            C              F               C
Past the playgrounds and empty switching yards
                     F                               F            C
The turtles eat the skin from your eyes, so they lay open to the stars
 
        C                      F                C                  
Your clothes give way to the current and river stone
             F                             C
'Till every trace of who you ever were is gone
          C             F                    C
And the things of the earth they make their claim
           F          F                C
That the things of heaven may do the same

F                             C  
Goodbye, my darling, for your love I give God thanks,

 C                  F
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C                  F
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C             F          C
Meet me on the Matamoros banks
  
                C          F            C
Over rivers of stone and ancient ocean beds
             F       F       C
I walk on twine and tire tread
                     C        F                      C     
My pockets full of dust, my mouth filled with cool stone
                F                      C
The pale moon opens the earth to its bones
    F                          C                    F               C
I long, my darling, for your kiss, for your sweet love I give God thanks
 
       F                        C
The touch of your loving fingertips
 C                  F
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C                  F
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C             F          C                  C    F     C
Meet me on the Matamoros banks    

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

    F                          C                    F                C
I long, my darling, for your kiss, for your sweet love I give God thanks
    F                         C
A touch of your loving fingertips
 C                  F
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C                  F  
Meet me on the Matamoros
 C             F         C
Meet me on the Matamoros banks
