Bob Dylan & Richard Thompson - Across The Borderline

Het lijkt me moeilijk om met Bob samen te spelen,maar een artiest als Richard Thompson kan er prima mee overweg.een redelijk geslaagde uitvoering van deze klassieker.

 "Across the Borderline", is geschreven door Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, en Jim Dickinson.

There's a land so I've been told
every street is paved with gold
And it's just across the borderline.
And when it's time to take your turn
Here's a lesson you must learn:
You could lose more than you ever
hoped to find.

And when you reach
the broken promised land
Every dream slips through your hand
And you know it's too late
to change your mind.
'Cause you paid the price
to come this far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across
the borderline.

Up and down the Rio Grande
a thousand footprints in the sand
reveal the secret no one can define.
The river flows on like a breath
in between our life and death.
Tell me who's the next to cross
the borderline.

And when you reach
the broken-promise land
Every dream slips through your hand
And you know it's too late
to change your mind.
'Cause you paid the price
to come this far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across
the borderline.
