Border Song

Verse 1
On the border for forty days
Life is hard in these cavalry ways
Pinned down on a starless night
Become a man in a fire fight
Wounded men scream and yell
Freezing cold in the pit of hell
Hang on til the morning light
Then everything will be alright

Chorus
Had to see it to believe where I’ve been
Take an enemy life to save a friend
My memories haunt me now and then
I’m on the border once again

Verse 2
Capped a Gak cause he crossed the fence
Sent him packing back across the grenze
Reply in kin or so they say
I think I’ll live to fight another day
Nothing left on the border now
The iron curtain it has fell down
All the boys are back at home
I think about ’em when I’m alone

Chorus
Had to see it to believe where I’ve been
Take an enemy life to save a friend
My memories haunt me now and then
I’m on the border once again
