You've Really Got Me on the Run

from by Richard Laviolette



Loneliness is my dog’s leash
It helps him from wandering astray
Through the fields to the end of the earth
Where it ain’t worth counting the days

You’ve really got me on the run lord, lord
You’ve really got me on the run
I’ve worn out my new pair of shoes
You’ve really got me on the run

Pat my knee and I pat my head
They say there’s weather in my bones
I feel the rain before it comes
So I know when to stay and when to go


Death comes waltzing across this floor
To lead you off by the arm
One dance with you he’s offering
So try not to look so alarmed


A hoot and a holler all the songs we know
This might just take us through the night
Those few of us still awake at dawn
Will hold a new day’s light
