This is a Ry Cooder song but this is how Willy does it (DeVille that is, not Nelson)

Across The Borderline - Willy DeVille
                                   
Intro: E   B7  E  E   

E                  B7        E                           D           A
There's a place so I've been told, where every street is paved with gold
         E                       B7                    
And it's just across the border line 
    E                 B7        E                          D        A
And when it's time to take your turn there's a lesson that you must learn
          E                  B7               E               
You could lose more than you ever thought you'd find 

         A                    E             
And when you reach the broken promised land 
A                        E    
And all your dream slips through your hands 
        E                                 B7                
And you know it's too late to change your mind 
               A                 E           A                E
Because you've paid the price to come so far just to wind up where you are
           E             B7               E                
And you're still just across the border line 

   Instrumental as per first verse

         A                    E             
And when you reach the broken promised land 
A                        E    
And all your dream slips through your hands 
        E                                 B7                
And you know it's too late to change your mind 
               A                 E           A                E
Because you've paid the price to come so far just to wind up where you are
           E            B7               E                
And you're still just across the border line 
                                     
E               B7  E                            D      A
Up and down the Rio Grande a thousand footprints in the sand
E                            B7                    
Reveal a secret no one can define 
E                  B7     E                     D         A
The river flows on like a breath in between are life and death
        E                 B7               E                      
Tell me who's the next to cross the borderline
 
             A                E             
And when you reach the broken promised land 
A                        E                       
And all your dream slips through your hands 
            E                                 B7               
Then you'll know it's too late to change your mind 
               A                 E           A                E
Because you've paid the price to come so far just to wind up where you are
           E            B7               E                
And you're still just across the border line 
           E            B7               E                
And you're still just across the border line 
        E             B7               E                
Tell me who's next to cross the border line
