Lyrics
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"

Oh oh, I'm out on the border
I thought this was a private line
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' to change this water to wine

Never mind your name, just give us your number
Never mind your face, just show us your card
And we want to know whose wing are you under
You better step to the right or we can make it hard

Oh ooh, I'm stuck on the border
All I wanted was some peace of mind
Don't you tell me 'bout your law and order
I'm try'n' 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 walkin' 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) Sick and tired of it
I'm out on the border
On the border
I'm out on the border
