   (E
Well,I left Houston, Texas on a Gulf Coast hurricane.

I was blowed down by a tornado, washed up by the rain.
          A   
Well, my pappy wasn't happy with me. He told me to go.
      E                 
So I stole my daddy's Cadilac, headed on down the road.
        B7)              
Well, I had a grin from ear to ear with each and every mile.
        A(1)                                G(1)            E
I was headed for the border, man, and I was goin' down in style.

      E 
Well, I hit Corpus Christi and the wind was at my back.

I drove them women crazy in my daddy's Cadilac.
           A 
Yeah, I'd cruise 'em down that boulevard, treated them like queens.
   E
I took 'em all the places that they wanted to be seen
     B7
And when I had to leave 'em, I'd tell 'em with a smile,
      A(1)                               G(1)           E
"I'm headed for the border, man, and I'm goin' down in style."

               A
Well, you've gotta take your chances if they ever come along.
       E      
Just close your eyes and listen to the great big engine whine.
    A 
And it don't really matter whether you are right or wrong
      B7           
Cause when you cross the border, man, you leave this world behind.

    E   
I stomped down on the peddle, set the cruise control.
 
Five-hundred ragin' horses beyond by the state parol.
           A
Lord, the sirens were ascreamin', lights were flashin' red.
           E
There's a dozen more awatin' at the roadblock up ahead.
       B7
As I scattered them like chickens, I heard one of 'em cry,
       A(1)                                G(1)           E 
"He's headed for the border, man, and he's goin' down in style."


E          A   E  B7  A   G  E

       A
Yeah, when you cross the border, you ain't never comin' back.
           E
Yeah, and there ain't no redemption when the cops are on your tail.
           A       
When the closest thing to Heaven is a great big Cadilac,
     B7
The city lights of Houston, or the firey gates of Hell.


E    
Well, they nailed me on the hill that overlooks the Rio Grande.

And I was feelin' just like Moses lookin' on the Promised Land.
            A
Well, they hauled me back to Houston, throwed me in the jail.
          E    
Well, my mama started cryin' and my daddy paid the bail.
           B7          
Well, I'm sorry not there to hear the outcome of my trial...
     A(1)                               G(1)           E   A E A E
I'm headed for the border, man, and I'm goin' down in style.
