Run For The Border

Song Author Max D. Barnes Performer: Johnny Rodriguez Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]A hundred dollars over the border
A thousand miles out of my [G7]mind   

Oh what was I thinking
Thinking I could drink all that Mexican [C]wine


And who in the world is this woman
I've never seen her [F]before
But I've got a feeling [C]that she's got a husband
[G7]Someone just kicked down the [C]door

Better run for the [G7]border
He's never gonna under[C]stand
Better find a [F]place to hide
On the [G7]other side of the Rio [C]Grande


Jose he's tall dark and handsome
She said as she reached for her [G7]cloths

But he's mean as a snake
When his woman you take right from under his [C]nose


I said this is a great time to tell me
She said I thought he was in [F]jail
Well I'm Jose's wife [C]Jose's got a knife
[G7]And Jose is hot on your [C]trail

Better run for the [G7]border
Jose he is a dangerous [C]man  
Better find a [F]place to hide
On the [G7]other side of the Rio [C]Grande


So I ran through the streets of Laredo
Naked as the day I was [G7]born   

People were staring and clapping
And laughing and honking their [C]horns


As I passed a church on the corner
I thought about stopping to [F]pray
Then a voice from the blue [C]said I'll watch over you
[G7]But we'd better stay ahead of [C]Jose

Better run for the [G7]border
Jose he is a dangerous [C]man  
Better find a [F]place to hide
On the [G7]other side of the Rio [C]Grande

Better run for the [G7]border
Jose will never under[C]stand
Better find a [F]place to hide
On the [G7]other side of the Rio [C]Grande


A hundred dollars over the border
A thousand miles out of my mind

Oh what was I thinking
Thinking I could drink all that Mexican wine

And who in the world is this woman
I've never seen her before
But I've got a feeling that she's got a husband
Someone just kicked down the door

Better run for the border
He's never gonna understand
Better find a place to hide
On the other side of the Rio Grande

Jose he's tall dark and handsome
She said as she reached for her cloths

But he's mean as a snake
When his woman you take right from under his nose

I said this is a great time to tell me
She said I thought he was in jail
Well I'm Jose's wife Jose's got a knife
And Jose is hot on your trail

Better run for the border
Jose he is a dangerous man
Better find a place to hide
On the other side of the Rio Grande

So I ran through the streets of Laredo
Naked as the day I was born

People were staring and clapping
And laughing and honking their horns

As I passed a church on the corner
I thought about stopping to pray
Then a voice from the blue said I'll watch over you
But we'd better stay ahead of Jose

Better run for the border
Jose he is a dangerous man
Better find a place to hide
On the other side of the Rio Grande

Better run for the border
Jose will never understand
Better find a place to hide
On the other side of the Rio Grande
