On The Border
Don Henley/B. Leadon/Glenn Frey
Cruisin' down the center of a two-way street,
wond'rin' who is really in the driver's seat.
Mindin' my bus'ness, along comes big brother,
says, "Son, you better get on one side or the other."

WO-OH I'm out on the border,
WO-OH I'm walkin' the line.
WO-OH Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order,
I'm tryin' to change this water to wine.

After a hard day I'm safe at home
foolin' with my baby on the telephone,
out of nowhere somebody cuts in and says,
"Hmm, you in some trouble, boy, we know where you been."

WO-OH I'm out on the border,
WO-OH I thought this was a private line.
WO-OH Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order,
I'm tryin' to change this water to wine.

Never mind your name JUST GIVE US YOUR NUMBER
mm, never mind your face JUST GIVE US YOUR CARD
Mm, and we wanna know WHOSE WING ARE YOU UNDER.
You better step to the right OR WE CAN MAKE IT HARD.

WO-OH I'm stuck on the border.
WO-OH All I wanted was some peace of mind.
WO-OH Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order,
I'm tryin' to change this water to wine.

ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER leave me be, I'm just walking this line
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER all I wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER can't you see I'm tryin' to change this water to wine
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER I'm sick and tired of all your law and order
ON THE BORDER say goodnight in here
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER
ON THE BORDER
I'M OUT ON THE BORDER (fade)
