Cruisin' down the centre of a two way street
Mindin' my business along comes big brother

I'm walkin' the line
I'm try'n' to change this water to wine
After a hard day I'm safe at home
Out of nowhere somebody cuts in and says
We know where you've been"
Oh oh, I'm out on the border
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order

Never mind your face, just show us your card
You better step to the right or we can make it hard
Oh ooh, I'm stuck on the border
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order

On the border
On the border
(On the border) Leave me be, I'm just walkin' this line
(On the border) All I wanted was some peace of mind, peace of mind
(On the border) Can't you see I'm tryin' to change this water to wine

(I'm out on the border ) I'm sick and tired of all your law and order
I'm out on the border
I'm out on the border
