Run Boy Run 02:40
Run, boy, run! Catch that setting sun You better run today Run, boy, run! They found your lab, son You better run, run away Run, run, run away Run, run, run today Run, boy, run! What’s done is done Now you better run, run away Run, boy, run! What’s done is done Now just run, run away Run, run, run away Run, run, run today

Wake me o wake me When it’s time to go I’ve packed up my bags I’ve mapped out the road It’s just hard to get up Early in the morn Wake me o wake me When it’s time to go Wake me o wake me When we’re almost there I’ve got my new shoes on I’ve combed my hair It’s just hard to stay up Driving everywhere So wake me o wake me When we’re almost there Wake me o wake me When they play that song It’s midnight in a storm And I’m your salty dog There is a time to sleep And a time to sing along Wake me o wake me When they play that song

For the last five years, all we said was goodbye I said it again, it was the fifth time I took your word and did what I thought was best I took your word and went 600 miles west You called at 3am, from a hospital bed You said you had to call, tomorrow you might be dead I took your word. I did what I thought was best I took your word. I went 600 miles west I made you cry the last times I left This time I cried more leaving Burket I took your word. I did what I thought was best I took your word. I went 600 miles west

Driving down the road with a yellow light on top of my truck Driving down the road with a yellow light on top of my truck Going down to Vincennes earning my 60 bucks You earn your money I’ll earn mine Driving escort til we hit the state line Jimmy’s up front I’m back here all alone Jimmy’s up front I’m back here all alone I’m going down the road, watching them mobile homes You earn your money I’ll earn mine Driving escort til we hit the state line Stopped at a diner I forgot to pray Stopped at a diner I forgot to pray I hope my boss still gives me my pay

Sitting at the bar, drunk as can be Thinking about the home that you had to leave You pull out your phone, call a friend from your town He says, “hey didn’t you know, they tore that old town down?” That’s when you know You got the Beaver Dam Blues You look to your right and you look to your left Everyone you see is speaking some accent You pull out your wallet, find a picture of your dad You made him proud, but you also made him sad That’s when you know You got the Beaver Dam Blues You finish out your beer Pay off your tab Walk out the door And into a cab And you know You got the Beaver Dam Blues You go home to your apartment In that new city This is what you wanted So why aren’t you happy? It’s cause you know You got the Beaver Dam Blues That’s when you know You got the Beaver Dam Blues

Well you went and left me another All I did was treat you well Since you left me so lonely I’ll leave you too and kill myself Our old white bathtub I’m gonna paint it red Take your old 22 And shoot me in my head I told you I was taking the pill I’m sorry, I know it was a lie All I wanted was to have your baby So you’d stay by my side Our old white bathtub I’m gonna paint it red Take your old 22 And shoot me in my head Now don’t worry about our little baby He don’t even have a name My swollen stomach will start bleeding He won’t even feel pain Our old white bathtub I’m gonna paint it red Take your old 22 And shoot me in my head

In the soggy ground by a sycamore tree That orphan found four demon strings Many men tried to play that thing Only the child could make it sing She played a note. She played some more. That sky grew dark. She played no more. Now in the soggy ground by a sycamore tree That orphan sleeps 47 feet deep

I’m coming to you father It’s been a long, long time I long to see your face As you long to see mine We will meet in Chicago Take that handsome drive Back to Indiana Back to the old times We’ll pass the fields a’rolling Pass them soybean farms We’ll talk and laugh and listen And count the wooden barns We’ll stop at a restaurant Eat a tenderloin Back in Indiana Back in the old times Then we’ll run out of words Like we always do There’ll be that long silence When I want to say I love you More than a lover More than my hopes so high More than Indiana More than the old times But you’ll be so bitter Although you love me so You won’t be mad at me But at another who was close And your sadness will creep Through the corn and through pines It’ll creep through Indiana And creep through the old times

When you want me to stay O you know that I’ll go away When you want me gone I’ll be at home I don’t know what I, don’t know what I want Meet me o my love In the city by Nives and Gruvs If you don’t know where Look for me there I don’t know what I, don’t know what I want
