Kris Kristofferson – Crossing The Border lyrics

Hey, take it and run, child
I'll ask you no questions
We traded our fortunes
Crossing the border

I hope you got lucky
You needed a change
I--I made it without you
Crossing the border

We were like a couple of wetbacks running
Standin' on the banks of some dangerous river
Lookin' into a brave new country
Risky business
Crossing the border

Ahhh, you--you doubled my chances
I--I sure do want your freedom
I--I'll never forget you
Crossing the border
Back when we were out there
Crossing the border
Layin' it on the line
Crossing the border
