Souther Hillman Furay Band – Border Town lyrics

Life ain't so easy in this border town, it's the dope and the nightlife
And it's no place you'd really want to hang around, but I think I might
Good looking women in this border town and most of them easy
But some of the dudes that are walking around, well they're just pretty
Greasy
The thing is, it bothers you sometimes, looking into that old familiar
Shine
Your baby was mine before and you don't seem to mind, what's more
She came steamin' into border town, a little girl with a big dream
Now she's covered in pearls and a long white gown, riding in a limousine
There's a dozen old ladies who were just like that, sometime back in the
Thirties
And now they're lonesome and looking for something to do, they got dirty
Because when they don't love you anymore, can you live on your memories?
And when your good friends ain't hanging at your door
Like a family of strangers, running in misery
Life ain't easy in this border town, the dope and the nightlife
And you'd never even hear it if the truth went down in border town
And when you're beaten in border town and there's no place else to go
Throw your dream in the ocean and start to row away from border town
