Your Playlist: Gaby Moreno and Van Dyke Parks (with Jackson Browne)

This is Gaby Moreno and Van Dyke Parks with Jackson Browne performing Across the Borderline.

If the song sounds familiar, that's because it's been around awhile. You may be familiar with the Willie Nelson or Ry Cooder versions of the tune.

Here's a taste of the lyrics:

There's a place where 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 that you must learn
You could lose more than you'll ever hope to find

When you reach the broken promised land
And every dream slips through your hands
Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind
'Cause you've paid the price to come so far
Just to wind up where you are
And you're still just across the borderline
