Dave Alvin - C

  I guess she put her blue dress on
  And walked out late last night
  Left one silk stocking
  Dangling from the bedside light
  I sobered up and called her name
  Just before the dawn
  I saw her footprints in the sand
  And knew that she had gone
               C       Dm  F
  Down the Rio Grande

  I pulled out of Albuquerque
  Prayin’ I wasn’t late
  I got a couple cups of coffee
  At some joint off the interstate
  Passin’ through Las Cruces
  I swear I saw her car
  She always said she’d go someday
  But never said how far
  Down the Rio Grande

Dm               G
  Maybe she’s in Brownsville
        C               Am
  She’s got some family there
Dm               G
  She was always talkin’ 'bout
      C                Am
  The salty Gulf Coast air
                  Dm     F
  Where the river ends
               C        Dm   F
  Down the Rio Grande

  I saw an old grey heron
  Flyin’ south against the wind
  Storm clouds over Juarez
  Rollin’ east to the Big Bend
  I drove down Highway Ninety
  Through a dusty desert wind
  I didn’t know where it would lead me
  Or if I’d find her again
  Down the Rio Grande

  I lit my last cigarette
  As the sky began to clear
  Black mountains up ahead
  A red sundown in my mirror
  Lost all the border
  ‘Tween the future and the past
  One fading slowly
  And the other comin’ fast
  Down the Rio Grande

Repeat Chorus

  I bought a bottle in Del Rio
  And I parked on the side of the road
  I stayed up all night
  Starin’ at the lights of Mexico
  And I walked down to border bridge
  At the break of day
  And I threw that empty bottle off
  And watched it float away
  Down the Rio Grande

Repeat Chorus

  Where the river ends
