The lights of Loredo dance on the water
Shine in a young man's eyes
He stands on the border and dreams of paradise
He's heard crazy stories of how people live
Over in the Promised Land
He heard they eat three meals a day
Just across the Rio Grande

He's got a wife named Maria and a baby named Rose
And one more the feet on the way
Two willing hands that couldn't find work today
He stairs at the river and curses the future that he can't understand
He knows his child would have a chance
Just across the Rio Grande

It's only a river that's not bad deep or wide
A boy can throw a stone across and reach the other side
It's just a muddy water cut in trough the land
But a man can't make a dream come true
Just across the Rio Grande

The lights of Loredo dance on the water
Shine in a young man's eyes
He stands on the border and stairs up at the skies
The same old stars shines so bride over the Promised Land
Sometimes it seems like God must live
Just across the Rio Grande

It's only a river that's not bad deep or wide
A boy can throw a stone across and reach the other side
It's just a muddy water cut in trough the land
But a man can't make a dream come true
Just across the Rio Grande

Sometimes it seems like God must live
Just across the Rio Grande
