The Line (Album Version) - Bruce Springsteen

I got my discharge from fort irwin

 

Took a place on the san diego county line

 

Felt funny bein a civilian again

 

Itd be some time

 

My wife had died a year ago

 

I was still tryin to find my way back whole

 

Went to work for the ins on the line

 

With the california border patrol

 

Bobby ramirez was a ten year veteran

 

We became friends

 

His family was from

Guanajuato

 

So the job it was different for him

 

He said they risk death in the deserts and mountains

 

Pay all they got to the smugglers rings

 

We send em home and they come right back again

 

Carl hunger is a powerful thing

 

Well I was good at doin what I was to

 

Ld kept my uniform pressed and clean

 

At night I chased their shadows

 

Thru the arroyos and ravines

 

Drug runners farmers with their families

 

Young women with little children by their sides

 

Come night wed wait out in the canyons

 

And try to keep em from crossin the line

 

Well the first time that I saw her

 

She was in the holdin pen

 

Our eyes met and she looked away

 

Then she looked back again

 

Her hair was black as coal

 

Her eyes reminded me of what Id lost

 

She had a young child cryin in her arms

 

I asked senora is there anything I can do

 

Theres a bar in tijuana

 

Where me and bobby alongsidedrink

The same people wed sent back the day before

 

She said her name was louisa

 

She was from sonora and had just come north

 

We danced and I held her in my arms

 

And I knew what I would do

 

She said she had some family in madera county

If she her child and younger brother could just get thru

 

At night they come across the levee

 

In the searchlights dusty glow

 

Wed rush em in our broncos

 

Force em back down into the river below

 

She climbed into my truck

 

She leaned toward me and we kissed

 

As we drove her brothers shirt slipped open

 

And I saw the tape across his chest

 

We were just about on the highway

 

When bobbys jeep come up in the dust on my right

 

I pulled over and let my engine run

 

And stepped out into his lights

 

I felt myself movin

 

My gun restin neath my hand

 

We stood there starin at each other

 

As off thru the arroyo she ran

 

Bobby ramirez he never said nothin

 

6 months later I left the line

 

I drifted to the central valley

 

And took what work I could find

 

At night I searched the local bars

 

And the migrant towns

 

Lookin for my louisa

 

With the black hair fallin down
