Run Boy Run Lyrics

You were born by a railroad track
Never knew your ma and your pa ain't comin' back
Had to make your way the best you can
But you didn't have to steal from another man

Run boy run boy run boy run they're gonna get you boy
run boy run
They're gonna catch you boy run boy run run boy run boy
run boy run

Think you're a man cause you're twenty one
Shot a man for nothin' and away you run
Wanted in most every state from here to Tennessee
If you're caught you'll do your runnin' hangin' from a

Run boy run boy run boy run...

Storm clouds lookin' down from the sky
And hangman's noose swingin' on a tree near by
The words on that tombstone that won't be read by you
Says his runnin's done at twenty one he won't see
twenty two

Run boy run boy run boy run...
(I don't know whether you'll believe this or not
But we have two brothers in Trouble who're thievinist
Well just down right crookedest people you'd ever wanna
Now of course that may not be too hard to believe
But when Orville and George Dobkins that's the two
brothers steal somethin'
They didn't steal from none of us they steal from each
That's right they steal from each other have each other
arrested and put in jail
Now Orville's been in jail well twelve times
And George well George has been in eleven in fact he's
still in
Now the other day I saw Orville on the street
And after we got thru with our howdy's I aked him how
George was
He kinda smiled and scratched the hammer holder on his
And said he guessed he's okay
Then I said you know Orville it seems an awful shame
For you and your brother to be stealin' from each other
all the time
Havin' each other arrested spendin' all that time in
You must feel kinda bad with your brother all locked up
in jail
And you out here free as a bird
Well Orville kinda grinned and said it ain't so bad he
can do anything he wants to do)
