​Across the Border

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Out of the Blue (1977).

(I've been workin' so hard, baby
Tryin' to get to you
I'm gonna be there soon
Because...)

In the heat of the day
Many miles away
When the sun is beating down
Upon the main street
I'll be waitin' here at the station
I gotta move down the line

They'll be dancin' and singin'
And doin' their thing
And they'll be rockin' and rollin'
Until the day is done
You know, I've got to make the deadline

I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh
If I don't get to the border, then I'll write

The Mardi Gras
Will be blowing strong
And the people dancing
All across the city
I'm leaving here tonight
I gotta move down the line

I'm gonna catch a ride on the 9:05
I'm gonna ride the rails
Until we reach the morning
Maybe three or four hundred miles

I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh
If I don't get to the border, then I'll write

When the wind is blowing
Softly through the streets
Of a little town
And the music's playin'
You're waitin' somewhere over the horizon

I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh
If I don't get to the border, then I'll write

You know, I gotta get that baby
You know, I gotta get that baby
