Lyrics

On the Rio Grande ~ Deborah Anne Fisher Copyright 2017

They walked along, the Rio Grande
In the fall, in the mud and trash
the open wall, gave them a chance
To unite with family on the Rio Grande

One of the couples 13 years ago,
was deported, back to Mexico
Oh their children, how they missed them so
& they walked in hope, on the Rio Grande

Chorus:

On the Rio Grande, the dried up riverbed
For a little chance, oh the tears they shed
The spirit man, it was love that led
& now here they stand, on the Rio Grande
(2nd) & now they ran across the Rio Grande

200 families, gathered there
for three minutes, well aware
they embraced in joy, because they dared
to seize the moment on the Rio Grande

you can draw a line, in the sand
with the law, of the land
but it’s not that simple, with love in your hand
& they seek to find, at the Rio Grand

Chorus

One side wore white, the other blue
So Border patrol, knew who was who
Soon the time was up, they put back the fence
But on the Rio Grande, the Blessing went home with them

then they walked on home, along the Rio Grande
In the dried up riverbed, in the mud and trash
for the open wall, gave them a chance
to hug their family, on the Rio Grande
And the Blessing went home with them, on the Rio Grande
And the Blessing goes home with them on the Rio Grande
And the Blessing is home with them- on the Rio Grande
