I Gotta Run

 

There's a sudden change a comin’ the law men got me runnin ‘

It’s early Monday morning and I can’t stay with you you 

There’s a cold wind a blowing I got  the tear drops on my floor again 

and I really should be going If they catch me I’ll be through 

I Gotta Run

 

I thought I’d have a little fun, score myself a big one

Now I Gotta Run

 

I don’t know what I was thinking, I should’ve never started drinking 

I should’ve poured it down the sink instead I pissed it all away 

It was only gonna be a little robbery that man he took a shot a me

Right then it was him or me so I blew him straight away

I Gotta Run

I thought I’d have a little fun, score myself a big one

I Gotta Run

 

I’m in prison in my mind already doing my time

From my sentence and my crime I’ll never get away

Someday they’ll come and take me in, make me pay for my sin

And I’ll never get free again, until that day I’ll stay

On the run

 

Thought I’d have a little fun, score myself a big one

Now I Gotta Run
