Border Reiver Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Southern bound from Glasgow town
She's shining in the sun
My Scotson Lassie on the border run

We're whistling down the hillsides
And tearing up the climbs
I'm just a thiever stealing time
In the Border Reiver

Eight hundred thousand on the clock
And plenty more to go
Crash box and lever
She needs the heel and toe

She's not too cold in winter
But she cooks me in the heat
I'm a six foot driver
But you can't adjust the seat
In the Border Reiver

"Sure as the sun rise"
That's what they say about the Albion
"Sure as the sun rise"
That's what they say about the Albion
She's an Albion, she's an Albion

The ministry don't worry me
My paperwork's alright
They can't touch me
I got my sleep last night

It's knocking out a living wage
In nineteen sixty nine
I'm just a thiever stealing time
In the Border Reiver

"Sure as the sun rise"
That's what they say about the Albion
"Sure as the sun rise"
That's what they say about the Albion
She's an Albion, she's an Albion
