On The Run Lyrics

A man stood in the shadows his face was dripping sweat
He took a break from running but he wasn't done yet
Looked over his shoulder when he heard the barking
Dug his feet into the earth & headed out of town
The town line's far away &
He won't sleep for days
Because he just slept with Annie & she's the sheriff's
Now the sheriff's men have got him running for his life

He should have known that girl was trouble but he
wasn't thinking clear
When she put her hand onto his leg & filled his glass
with beer
But a deputy did see them & tracked the sheriff down
Just had time to grab his clothes & high ball out of

The town line's far away &
He won't sleep for days
& even if he makes it, there's nothing he can do
But hope & pray the sheriff there hasn't heard the news

A man stood in the shadows thinking about the past
About all the women he had known & living life too fast
But he heard a noise behind him, felt a gun against his
Should have known the sheriff wouldn't rest till he was

The town line's far away &
He's 6 feet in the grave
He's lying there with Annie, who was the sheriff's wife
'Til the sheriff & his men robbed them of their lives
