Bordertown (Long Version) Lyrics

In the quiet hours before the dawn

Buttons up his uniform

Takes out his badge and pins it on

For thirty years he's enforced the law

And he drives out on the Rio Grande

Across the dry and sunburned land

And on this side he takes his stand again

They won't get through this bordertown

He turns them back he stands his ground

But still they come because they know

Somewhere the streets are paved with gold

Somewhere beyond the sound of this bordertown

 

It's not his place to say what's fair

He's done his duty all these years

In his mind the law's the law

But then at dusk she wades across

And he sees the hope thats in her eyes

Child with dreams of a brand new life

It's not his job to say what's right or wrong

They won't get through this bordertown

He turns them back he stands his ground

But still they come because they know

Somewhere the streets are paved with gold

Somewhere beyond the sound of this bordertown

As night falls over Mexico

He waits there as she comes ashore

Finished there's a moment of faith

He turns his back and he walks away

 

They won't get through this bordertown(this bordertown)

He turns them back he stands his ground (stands his ground)

But still they come because they know (cause they know)

Somewhere the streets are paved with gold

Somewhere beyond the sound of this bordertown
