Cruisin' down the centre of a two way street
Wondering who is really in the driver's seat
Mindin' my business along comes big brother
Says, "Son you better get on one side or the other"

Oh oh, I'm out on the border
I'm walkin' the line
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' 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've been"
