When I Get To The Border Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

by Richard Thompson 

 

Greedy people take what's mine 

I can leave them all behind 

And they can never cross that line 

When I get to the border 

 

Saw-bones standin' at the door 

Waiting till I hit the floor 

He won't find me anymore 

When I get to the border 

 

CHORUS: 

Monday morning, Monday morning 

Closing in on me 

I'm packin' up and I'm a-runnin' away 

To where nobody thinks of me 

 

If you see a box of pine 

With a name that looks like mine 

Say I drowned in a barrel of wine 

When I got to the border 

When I got to the border 

 

CHORUS 

 

A one way ticket's in my hand 

Headed for the chosen land 

My troubles will all turn to sand 

When I get to the border 

 

A soft girl with yellow hair 

Waiting in that rockin' chair 

And if I'm weary I won't care 

When I get to the border 

 

CHORUS 

 

A dusty road that smells so sweet 

Paved with gold beneath my feet 

And I'll be dancing down the street 

When I get to the border 

When I get to the border 

 

CHORUS
