                The Border
By Chris Knight
Written by Chris Knight/Christie Sutherland 
CD- The Jealous Kind

Capo 2

Em                                G 
They met down in Brownsville in a little border dive 
D                                              C
She was just looking for someone to dance with he was just looking for a fight 
Em                             G  
They knew what they wanted but that's about all they knew 
D                                C
They liked to be with each other just to see what the other would do 

G               D
They're walking on the border 
Em              C
Love that wild side 
G               D
They're walking on the border 
Em                 C
Ain't they feeling fine 

The sun fell on Loretta asleep in the back of the van
Jim smoked his Camel and stared across the Rio Grande 
He said “Hey wake up, Loretta, we've got some work to do”
“Gotta see a friend of a friend down in Vera Cruz “


Back in Brownsville, Texas, a week on down the road 
They ran out of American money, ran out of Mexico 
They were kissing on the corner, ain't it good to be alive 
Then they crashed the door of the liquor store she handed him his forty-five
