"Border Town" as written by and John David Souther....
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's gonna bother 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 some dreams
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 her
Sometime back in the thirties
And now they're lonesome and looking for something to do
Well, 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 so easy in this border town
There's too much dope and too much running around
And you'd never even hear it if the truth went down
In border town

And when you're beaten in border town
There's no place else to go
Throw your dream in the ocean and start to row
Away from border town

Bye-bye border town
