border song lyrics – elton john

border song

alb*m elton john 1970

holy moses, i have been removed,
i have seen the spectre, he has been here too,
distant cousin from down the line
brand of people who ain’t my kind
holy moses, i have been removed.

holy moses i have been deceived,
now the wind has changed direction and i’ll have to leave
won’t you please excuse my frankness but it’s not my cup of tea
holy moses, i have been deceived.

i’m going back to the border
where my affairs, my affairs ain’t abused
i can’t take any more bad water
i’ve been poisoned from my head down to my shoes.

holy moses i have been deceived.

holy moses let us live in peace
let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease
there’s a man over there, what’s his colour i don’t care
he’s my brother let us live in peace
he’s my brother let us live in peace
he’s my brother let us live in peace
