Where the sun goes up and the sun comes down nothing
ever changes in a border town

It turns around and starts all over again

It’s alcohol and nicotine and everyday’s like Halloween

It’s a muy loco world we’re living in

It’s broken dreams and shady deals

Red hot cars and cold blue steel

And every night temptation comes around

And down on the border where the coyotes howl

The hot winds blow and the big boys prowl

Always something evil going down


Look out boy you’re gonna lose control

Blow your cool and curse your soul

Open up your eyes and read the signs

Are you gonna be a man and stand up tall

Or turn your back and say the hell with it all

Don’t you know that the blind can’t lead the blind

And you’re just about to cross the line

Don’t you know if you turn your back the water gets
muddy and the cards get stacked

Nobody gets a free ride in this game

A rich man poor man beggar man thief doctor lawyer or an Indian chief

In the eyes of the law they’re all gonna look the same

But right’s still right and wrong’s still wrong

And they keep on singing that same old song

About the only ones are you and me

Take a look in the mirror cause you know what you are

A belly full of guts and a little tin star

And you’re standing between the devil and the deep blue sea
