Jimmie Dale Gilmore – Borderland lyrics

Well, I headed back to the Borderland
When the home-guard went insane.
No use trying to work with people
Who can't tell fire from rain.
The Judge had tried to hitch a ride
But I only took him half way.
Friends are friends, but in the Borderland
You can't be careful of what you say.

The Sheriff sent me every warning he could
But I knew more than he.
My home is both sides of the Borderland
So he knows where I'll be.
The Businessman in a sleek sedan
Thought he could beat me here,
But roads fade out before you reach the line
And the signposts disappear.
So good to be home in the Borderland
Where things are not what they seem.
So good to be home in the Borderland
Between the dawn and the dream.

The brown-eyed girl from the battleground
Had just met me half-way.
The Border-Guard had let her pass
But said you could not stay.
She gazed upon the mountain above
And she reached out her hand.
The she let go with all her might
And loved the Borderland.

So good to be home in the Borderland
Where things are not what they seem.
So good to be home in the Borderland
Between the dawn and the dream
